What are you talking about, did I allude to that at all?

Who do you think Reagan Democrats in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia have more in common with, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, John McCain, or Sarah Palin?

I honestly cannot see Pawlenty or Romney picking up more independents or Democrats for McCain than Sarah Palin can. Unless you can show that this hurts McCain with the Republican base, then its going to be a net positive for McCain.

But will find out soon enough, so I would be careful with your predictions.
I admitted she may attract Reagan Democrats if they vote fiscally only, but I think McCain already had those type of voters.

SHE WILL NOT WIN OVER HILLARY SUPPORTERS BECAUSE SHE'S A WOMAN. Why can't you figure that out?

I'm not convinced, and I honestly believe most of you aren't either that she's really going to bring over some new votes. She secured part of the base, that's it.

Hillary's gals would no more vote for Palin than Palin's girls would vote for Hillary....

Oh, and Ten bucks says there is a Hillary supporter speaking at the Republican Convention this week.......

Exactly, I think it's really telling how it's usually the "men" saying she's going to win the women vote.

True, if you frame it that way.


Here is Orange County CA (population over 3 million, that is more than probably 4 states, and we don't have our own Senator) , we just got our first woman Sheriff.

I don't think women care if she is a Dem or Republican. The glass ceiling has been broken.

One very huge factor for me in considering voting for Obama, is that I would like to see the color barrier broken, once and for all.

I do believe there are some of these Hillary supporters that will want the glass ceiling broken.


And if one looks into Palin, they will see that she has a good chunk of the GOP establishment (in Alaska) against her.
She also has appointed Democrats, Independents and she is only able to move legislation by getting support from Democrats.

What Senator does that remind you of?

Even if it means voting for someone who is anti-choice, creationist, etc? Someone who is the complete opposite of their original candidate?

Then why the hell didn't they just register Republican in the first place?

If one is only looking at this through partisan eyes than your statement makes sense.

If one is only looking at this through 'glass ceiling being broken" than a female V P does that.

Does anyone deny that when Elizabeth Dole got elected to the Senate from a Southern State it was not an accomplishment for women?


another thing to consider,

we have many Black Conservatives that are supporting Obama, why?

they say to break the color barrier.

Can I skip reading this entire thread and just say... (and from what I've heard in the last day...)

Palin is apparently the governor of a state that has about 600,000. How many years "experience" has she had? Didn't she state she didn't even know what the VP actually does on a day to day basis. And if something happens to McCain, she's next in command? I DON'T THINK SO!

(Watch Bill Maher, it was really good last night!)

anytime,

that is the preferred method of quite a few

( they do seem to read and reread their own posts, though )

I can see their point, and I have to say I'm excited that no matter what happens in November, it's a big deal either way, but I wouldn't vote for Rice or Dole just because she's a girl.

Does anyone mind if I don't join in the revelry about Palin's looks? It's okay if she's pretty, you know. I hope that women can be evaluated for something other than looks.
