Most Americans are pro-gun and the vast majority believe in God, especially the Hillary supporters that helped her win overwhelmingly in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Most of them are not 60s radicals, and are right of center in their political beliefs despite being registered Democrats.

Democrats have not won the Presidency in the United States without winning West Virginia since 1916. McCain will probably win West Virginia by a record margin this year. Something to think about.

There's a difference between believing in God and believing that a fairy tale from a few thousand years ago is exactly the way things are simply because it's written in a certain book. But that's another thread entirely....

What does a belief in God have to do with anything?

We're Catholic as are those supposed problematic voters in Pennsylvania, and we don't drink the silly Creationist kool-aid.

So not only do women voters automatically vote for women, but now believing in God = creationist?

most women who've lionized a woman running for president are not, at all, anti-choice.

the right to choose has been a central issue in the lives of most feminist women.

Except that is precisely what they did in 1980, 1984, and 1988! 3 of the largest electoral landslides in history. I can definitely see many pro-choice Catholic women voting for MCain/Palin in Pennsylvania and Ohio.

interesting!

kind of like McCain's second marriage when he traded in the newly ugly, deformed wife for the hot daughter of a beer baron.

So you think Tom Ridge would have been a better choice than Sarah Palin in getting the largest number of Hillary supporters to vote for McCain?

I've been reading the responses to the news of women who supported Hillary in the election. Most of them have said they are actually insulted that McCain would pick someone transparently as a way to pander to them by putting a woman on the ticket; a woman whose stances and policies run counter to those of the woman they wanted in the White House. Most of them said they're supporting Obama now more than ever. I'm not saying this is necessarily going to lose the election for McCain, but he's deluded if he's thinking he's going to get any Democrats or former Hillary voters with this tactic.

i don't think that anyone McCain could have picked is going to win any Hillary supporters.

Palin was a gamble for them. one that i don't believe will work.

Absolutely!

I think he would have had a decent chance at picking up some of those women in PA. As it stands, I think PA is lost to McCain.

I still think Tom Ridge would have been the best choice, but I from a political strategy standpoint, Sarah Palin is better than Romney or Pawlenty.

There are already Hillary supporters who will be supporting McCain this fall regardless of todays choice. The question is, who would bring in more of them, Ridge or Palin?

Just a small percentage of them moving over to McCain in a few states could win the election for McCain.
