John McCain has chosen his running mate, Sarah Palin. Palin is the Governor of Alaska. I wonder, now that he has chosen Palin, and Senator Stevens has been indicted, how many Alaskan politicians are left to run for state offices?
Seriously this is an interesting choice. Palin was not in the top tier of candidates. It also puts on the showdown of an African American President with an "Old School" running mate versus an "Old School" nominee with a female running mate.
Will the "Good 'Ole Boys" of the GOP flock toward McCain-Palin or will they become the Mondale-Ferraro of the new century?
Either way, it looks like there will be a historic presidency for 2009-2013.
