I get you completely


but, I don't get how some people in here and other places
assume that their line of thinking is universal

I try and explain what I think and why
there may be some people I share a "demographic" with
over 50s, moderates?. swing voters, perhaps

I think she led her High School Basketball team to a state championship

I get what you're saying.

I just think that the number of such women is insignificant enough to not change the outcome in any given state. But people talk about them as if Palin is suddenly a game changer when the first poll tells you that women themselves are more suspicious of her than men.

Every Republican pundit on TV last night was behaving as if droves of Hillary voters were ready for picking. As if.

( I might vote for your mom, send me a picture )




Well, with all the hoopla about Obama being a community organizer.

I guess that means Al Sharpton should be Pope.

I don't think anyone said that simply because Obama was a community organizer, he's qualified to be president. It's brought up most times because with his accomplishments in law school he could've gone to any law firm in the country, but he chose to work in a job that pays less money in order to help people. He's not the only person to have done that of course, but it does show that the common good and welfare of people are important to him. I would say that's a good quality for a president to have. Also, never, ever compare Obama to the paranoid douchebag that is Al Sharpton.

I believe I did answer, but if you didn't see it, she is from outside Washington, further outside Washington than any candidate for the office has ever been. Independents are likely to love that. Democratic strategist have already acknowledged that Obama is having difficulty picking up segments of Hillary Clinton's voting block.

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.


do you think Sarah Palin would make a good president? if so, why?

Exactly. I'm still wondering what that has to do with anything. He didn't pick Kaine because a 3 year governor with no national campaign or policy experience is not ready to be president.

the small amount of rabidly anti-choice Christian women who were somehow going to vote for Obama even without Hillary who will now be brought over to McCain because of Palin will be offset by the socially moderate, financially conservative independents who think McCain just did something incredibly idiotic.
