Governor Sarah Palin (R-AK) is McCain's VP Choice

Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain has chosen Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, campaign officials told NBC News on Friday.

She would be the first woman to serve on a Republican presidential ticket. The pro-life Palin would also be the first Alaskan ever to appear on a national ticket.

Palin, 44, was elected Alaska's first woman governor in 2006. The state’s voters had grown weary of career politician Gov. Frank Murkowski, whom she defeated in the GOP primary. continue

This is a hail mary, swing for the fences pick.

My take, the McCain Campaign waited to hear and see the Obama speech last night. Then decided to go outside the box.

Now, this has taken folks by surprise here. Now will come the "who is Palin?" stuff, but more importantly the "experience" meme is taken off the table.

Also, this boxes Biden, to the McCain Camp. He can not appear attacking a woman during the VP Debate. But, we will see about that, because Palin has NO FOREIGN POLICY EXPERIENCE.

And the "ready to be Commander-in-Chief" question is now thrown to Palin, since McCain is now 72 years old. She was a mayor prior becoming a governor.

A bold, risky pick, indeed.

Oh, McCain has stolen the media from the Obama Campaign. They needed to do something, since they were sucking on lack of oxygen.
