All Out for Hillary Voters
McCain picks Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

If I could ask McCain one question about the pick I would ask him if he would have still selected Palin had Obama picked Hillary, because the answer is clearly NO, though he would have to say YES. There is a serious (72-year-old) heartbeat-from-the-presidency issue for a VP with so little experience. But there is also a McCain character question that continues to grow. Tasked with his first major presidential decision, John McCain made a deliberately political choice, rather than a principled one. That much seems unquestionable.
