Sarah Palin ~ McCain's Surprising Strategic Move!

Times are a changing! I'm empowered to see another woman in the spotlight! What an amazing move for McCain's campaign! He pulled a duesy out of his hat didn't he? Hey if we couldn't have a woman President, why not a Vice President? Who would've thought in this day and age that women would be holding such powerful positions? A proven fact women can do anything, and become anyone they want to be. Women have come a long way, from the 1920's when the Nineteeth Amendment was passed. The amendment giving all women the right to vote!

Sarah Palin referred to the time when women were allowed to vote, in her speech . The vital role of women to vote, in which she humbly attributed to be in the position she is today. I like how she is down to earth, five children -bless her heart! Her husband Todd Palin is a production manager for the Alaska North Slope. Their son Track, she is proud to say is serving our country in the Army. Governor Palin also paid tribute to the women who have come before her, Geraldine Ferraro, and Hilary Rodham Clinton.

Already news is coming out of the woodwork, ready to say she's inexperienced. Not a factor, you can learn anything you put your mind to. Knowledge and experience comes with the chance to be put in the position to learn. She is definitely a woman to follow in the spotlight, and rising up to the occasion with grace and determination. You heard the saying "Behind every man there is a good woman," now I say "Beside every man there's a woman willing and waiting to take his position!"

Wow! I about fell off my chair with that announcement. I think we've only touched the surface of this remarkable woman. I know her opponents will try to stereotype her for her conservatism, a beauty queen, etc. But I think this one is an original. Fasten your seat belts!

I was shocked too Jo, but thinking what a wise move for McCain. Yes I'll be watching with interest to see what happens!

Thanks for posting. I am very happy about McCain's choice. I now know who I am voting for.

Hello Terry,

I know it's going to be a close race. I just love the fact that women are coming up in the world. I admire people ~ mem or women who know and go after what they want. Glad you know who you are voting for! :)

Jo, I for one was ecstatic to hear the announcement. Being very convertive I felt many were going to cast a reluctant vote for McCain if at all. I think he realized he had left his base luke-warm at best.
What's the fuss about participating a beauty queen? Can't women be attractive and substinative??

By the way thanks for stopping by.

Hi Dan,

I thought it was a wonderful strategic move, to swing over some undecided voters as you say! Not to mention some women ones! I agree women can be smart and beautiful at the same time, at least I try to be! :)

Hi jo!

Very interesting move!!! By the way until I see this, I didn't know that she has five children + her daughter is pregnant! What a great lady in many ways!!!

Jo said...

Hi Ochi,

Can you imagine having so many children, and intelligence to hold such a position. A remarkable woman indeed! :)

My vagina disagrees with her vagina.

I agree with some issues, and disagree with others, but I do believe things will eventually work out. Folks will always be who they want to be, and love who they want to love regardless of the opposition, and I don't think that's wrong. I just think it's great to have a women in power for a change!
