Veep Veep!!

Ok, I haven't mused over political stuff in awhile, but I thought I would mention that McCain has mentioned he is putting together a list of potential candidates for Vice President. This selection process has my interest, because there are so many schools of thought on who and why McCain should select. What does he need? I certainly don't feel that he needs to draw in moderates or jaded democrats --- he has those by the bucketfull. But what about the rest of us? I like to think he is going to pick someone ultraconservative to make peace with those of us who were championing nearly ANYONE else but McCain during the last year. I loved Duncan Hunter, Tom Tancredo, and I adored Fred Thompson. I was a bit indignant after Fred dropped out - I refused to take my "I'm with Fred" sticker down for several weeks. Anyway, even though there were plenty of wonderful candidates in the last year running for the republican nomination, there is one particular individual who was not running who I have my eyeballs on. Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska. This lady is one kickass conservative who is photogenic to boot.

Anyway, I'm not sure who John McCain is going to select as his running mate - but he definitely has my interest at the moment.
