The only people she lost are some of the country club "conservatives" that, although they pander to the religious right, secretly despise them, and some Independents that think she's not qualified enough. Other than that just think how utterly boring it would have been if McCain had picked Pawlenty, Romney or Lieberman AND LOST JUST THE SAME!!! It's Obama's time right now - just face the fact. It has nothing to do with who McCain did or did not pick. It's just Obama's time in history. Period.
To paraphrase an old German politician who critizised another one from his own party for his miserable election campaign: You don't win by trying to make 100% voters 110% voters and thereby putting off thousands of other voters. What kind of base is it that you have to keep excited till the last day? He shouldn't have cared about that minority that might have not gone voting since he was too far left for their liking.

I'm not defending Republicans who overspent in the past. What's the point of electing Democrats with people like Barney Frank who are okay with ignoring the deficit. At least a spending freeze is a good start. Of course people don't believe it will happen. At least McCain promises to use his veto and if congress goes more for the Democratic party having him try and keep them in check will help.

JohnMcCain.com - McCain-Palin 2008

"Comprehensive Spending Controls: John McCain will institute broad reforms to control spending:

The McCain administration would reserve all savings from victory in the Iraq and Afghanistan operations in the fight against Islamic extremists for reducing the deficit. Since all their costs were financed with deficit spending, all their savings must go to deficit reduction.

A one-year spending pause. Freeze non-defense, non-veterans discretionary spending for a year and use those savings for deficit reduction. A one-year pause in the growth of discretionary spending will be imposed to allow for a comprehensive review of all spending programs. After the completion of a comprehensive review of all programs, projects and activities of the federal government, we will propose a plan to modernize, streamline, consolidate, reprioritize and, where needed, terminate individual programs.

Take back earmark funds. The McCain Administration will reclaim billions of add-on spending from earmarks and add-ons in FY 2007 and 2008. "

Of course cynical people will say "Nah it won't happen."
