Everyone else that was speculated on had strong personalities and opinions. He didn't want that, he picked a person to go to funerals and dinners!!!
McCain picked a trophy wife type partner. It wouldn't be the first time. Sadly, when you sit down and think about all the reasons, she doesn't measure up, to all the many, many, exceptionally qualified battle-harden women in the GOP; it's hard to come to any other conclusion than he wanted only to use her to look good.
It's quite shameful when you think about it.
Her right-wing identity and closeness to the top office along with McCain's medically complicated age make her a dangerous choice for VP. If the country were to be foolish enough to put McCain into office and something were to happen to him she would have no choice but to trust her, already ever present in the McCain campaign, Neocon handlers in running the country.
She would be another Bush-like character close to the oil companies with even less experience running the nation into the ground.
I worry that what we see as such an obviously shallow choice will be welcomed by the reality show obsessed Fox-accepting crowd as a good idea with no solid reason why they believe so.
I'm certain the community I live in will just love her.
