My preference, and the only way I'd vote for McCain, is Alaska governor Sarah Palin, but I never get my way.

She is a pretty staunch conservative which the right wingers want, but by the simple fact she is a woman she can draw some hillary votes. What I like the most is it seems like she has actually got thing accomplished while being Gov. However the hell she got that natural gas pipeline passed is beyond me but she did. It will be tough for Obama to say people dont want drilling in Alaska when McCains Veep with a over 80% approval rating in her state wants it.

She's got my vote.From The Christian Broadcasting Network:Evangelicals Go Bonkers For Palin.http://www.cbn.com/CBNnews/435468.aspxThe conservative base just got seriously energized. This could also play against the Dems in the Senate and House races as Pelosi makes a major flub with Catholics. The Pope might actually excommunicate her for it, trying to say that Catholic theology jibes with her pro-choice stance. Several Bishops and Cardinals have already condemned her and that will take even more Mass attending Catholics out of play.This is getting very interesting.If Palin can deliver a great speech in St. Paul to go with a good to great McCain speech then Obama is going to be on the defensive.

Swerb wrote:Thing is, McCain is such a brutal public speaker.Honestly, I'd get him out from behind a podium, lose the fucking teleprompter, and just let him freelance. Or at least make it appear like he's freelancing. He's much better, much easier to watch and listen to in that setting.He always sounds like he's reading. Doesn't have the right voice inflections. Just looks and sounds old behind the podium.

Palin was the point guard and captain for the Wasilla High School Warriors, in Wasilla, Alaska, when they won the Alaska small-school basketball championship in 1982; she earned the nickname "Sarah Barracuda" because of her intense play. She played the championship game despite a stress fracture in her ankle, hitting a critical free throw in the last seconds. Palin, who was also the head of the school Fellowship of Christian Athletes, would lead the team in prayer before games.

Makes it damn near impossible for the orator to claim a debate as a win when it's over even if there is a clear out-performance by the orator.
