Honestly John McCain was not my first choice for the Repbulican ticket - or even my second. And when rumors started swirling that Senator McCain might chose a pro-abortion running mate I was angered and frustrated that the social conservatives were going to be completely, well, dissed by McCain.
I've been a fan of Sara Palin for months. One of Dan's younger sisters lives in Alaska and 'introduced' us to her Governor. Once I started learning more about Mrs. Palin I thought she'd be an excellent choice for Vice President, but thought her chances were slim to none.
I screamed for joy once the McCain-Palin ticket was announced. Literally. And after hearing her speak at length - Wow! I can't contain my glee!
It's going to be a fun ride, folks! An no matter what your political affiliation, it's wonderful and inspiring that both an African-American and a female are at the top of the tickets this year.
God bless those who choose to run and serve our country!
