In an unexpected turn of events, Senator Barack Obama, instead of choosing the best woman in the nation for a running mate, selected a man, Joe Biden. He slighted women in this action and he made light of Hillary Clinton’s strong following.
Hillary was gracious at the convention and supported Obama despite his inability to understand what he had done. Perhaps it is Obama’s sexist background that led him to the decision.
Senator John McCain selected Sarah Louise Heath Palin, the current governor of Alaska. She was the first woman to ever be elected to the governorship in Alaska, and she is the first female vice presidential candidate of the Republican Party.
We see this as a brilliant move by McCain. Sarah Palin is 44 years old, a great leader, with five children. She has an unheard of approval rating as governor that is the highest in Alaska’s history and in the 90s!! And it was her stand against a Republican establishment for unethical dealings in Alaska that won her that governorship, so this is hardly a partisan choice.
Obama made all the polite hypocritical comments we would expect to the press, while he immediately had his campaign take a swipe at Palin’s experience. Talk about calling the kettle black!! We think the Obama camp better wake up and start treating women with respect. Or his election in November is anything but guaranteed.
