I’m pulling for Obama, have been since before he announced. I like that he doesn’t follow the norm and has good reasons behind his decisions most of the time. If he had picked Hillary, I would have done a :roll: but he didn’t.

Then with McCain picking Palin.. She reminds me of a yes-man and they seem to have very similar views on all of the issues. I don’t understand the choice though, because noone knows who she is and the views they share don’t seem to be the most popular ones to have right now.

Also, if he was trying to oust the whole historical significance of a female VP, the Democrats already did it back in 1984 when Walter Mondale nominated Geraldine Ferraro. He didn’t win obviously, but it’s been done.
