So here is my view on Palin. she was a nobody 15 years ago, she joined the local PTA because she was unhappy with the way things were being run. she then continued her climb to mayor of Wasilla. she did a good job there and ran for Governor. she won, and cleaned house, ridding alot of corruption and doing away with alot of frivolous spending. now she is running for VP. She fishes, she hunts. her husband is a fisherman, she has 5 kids, a son that is ENLISTED, and a pregnant 17 y.o. daughter. if you take her out of the picture, her family is pretty much a normal family up here. there are no white collar people in this family. her husband is not a lawyer, her son is not a commisioned officer. they are truly the average family. I don't ever remember there ever being such debate on a VP candidate. is it because people are afraid of change. yes Obama says he is for change, but other than the shade of his skin, he is the same as every other career politician. I believe that Palin will really shake up the status quo, and people are scared to death of that. And yes she has said to pray to god for certain things. i am as far from religious as one can be, but who cares? what is it going to hurt?
