Default More McCain camp "strategy"???

you know what they say about "dissention amongst the ranks".

Palin breaks with McCain on gay marriage amendment

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081020/...n_gay_marriage

Quote:
NEW YORK – Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin says she supports a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, a break with John McCain who has said he believes states should be left to define what marriage is. In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network, the Alaska governor said she had voted in 1998 for a state amendment banning same sex marriage and hoped to see a federal ban on such unions.

"I have voted along with the vast majority of Alaskans who had the opportunity to vote to amend our Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I wish on a federal level that's where we would go. I don't support gay marriage," Palin said. She said she believed traditional marriage is the foundation for strong families.

...

Palin also reaffirmed her view that Obama had been "palling around with terrorists" because of his association with Bill Ayers, a 1960s-era radical who helped found the violent Weather Underground group to protest the Vietnam war. The group was responsible for bombings of several government buildings.

"I would say it again," she said.
personally, im against gay "marriage". call it a "legal union" or something, but just as 2 homosexual couples wouldnt wanna be called "man & wife" dont call their legal union a marriage.

with that being said, i strongly feel the word "gay" or homosexual" have no place in the sacred document known as the US Constitution.

but my personal views are besides the point. who exactly is in charge of this GOP campaign? is this just a stunt to draw attention and to further hammer home the rebellious "maverick" side of sarah palin? if so, its getting tired. if not, i really feel sorry for mccain, cause it seems like palin is just "happy to be there" and stress her own personal agenda (and of course reap the celebritydom i.e. lame SNL gigs.)

i get the feeling she will be more than happy to lose this election and take her newfound fame back home to alaska.

its quite a shame as i always felt mccain deserved better than that.

hey john.... even "bulldogs" with lipstick need a leash.

personal feelings aside, do you think this is good strategy to keep breaking "camp"? do you disagree with the dissention amongst the ranks? or is it strategy?

Neither, it is her personal feelings. I find it refreshing that she is allowed to express her feelings even if they don't agree with McCain.

Is it always about strategy, can't two running mates differ on some stances. I agree its refreshing to hear a straight answer from someone. I bet she has strong feelings about illegals as well, contrary to Obama and McCain giving them amnesty. Biden and Obama had differences in primary, I'm sure they worked them out and agree on everything now.

well, im not too concerned about canadians crossing over into alaska as US/canada is the largest unproteced boarder in the world.

but youre right. in order to win, it is always about strategy.

is allowing palin to seemingly "wear the pants" in this campaign the appropriate strategy to take? because dissention in the ranks is never good.

im just asking for opinions here....

The Obama camp sure seems to be letting Biden express his opinions about Obama's qualifications, or lack of.

The attacks are getting old, Obama has most likely won anyways, let it go.

And Biden hasent broke away from Obama with crazy remarks? Come on Toney.... you will NOT change a single opinion on this board. Minds are made up....


This seemingly large group of people who havent made up their minds ...IMO does not exist on that scale.

And especially words from a football site, try a political board, perhaps there you can change the minds of 100's of thousands, but from what I've seen here on this board. Minds are dead set. Not that Im against political discussion but, really, here, it's a waste of finger energy.
