APA source tells CNN that Republican presidential hopeful John McCain has tapped Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. Palin, a first-term governor and self-styled "hockey mom,", is due to appear with McCain at a rally in Dayton, Ohio at noon..

AWESOME.

A lot of people already knew she carried a baby with Down's syndrome to term. Just found out from another board that her oldest son is serving in Iraq.

About time we get a politician who walks the walk.

A good friend of mine who still lives in Alaska (I moved to Colorado from there in the mid-'90s) is very much sold on her and believes she's the best governor by far that Alaska's had since Jay Hammond. I trust his judgment.

Well let's see if she can take that mindset to DC and do some good things. I like the "hockey mom" comment.

I don't think I'd mind this paticular woman in the office...she's a go-getter.

I think she's passed a bill.

And no, she's not an eskimo, but her hubby is. She's from Idaho.

It's an interesting choice for VP, but I kinda like it.

What are you talking about, there's been a woman in the white house every year. Geez, some people are so oblivious

Again, I have to petition for the sarcasm smiley - these others just don't cover it well eough.

I'm not sure he should be doing that before the election!!! Bad presidential hopeful - at least Clinton waited until he was in office

Sorry I couldn't resist.
