So Much For the Whole "Ready to Lead?" Strategy
Okay, so John McCain's core strategy is painting Barack Obama as inexperienced and not "ready to lead." Then he picks someone to be a heartbeat away from the Oval Office whose experience is as mayor of some little town in Alaska no one's ever heard of and half a term as Governor of a state with a population of less than 700,000?
There's only one explanation for this: John McCain knows he's going to lose. So he's making a symbolic pick.
UPDATE: From a previous interview with Palin: As for the prospect of her being vice president, Palin told Kudlow that she could not answer the question of whether she wanted the job “until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day."
This should be fun.
