The MSM is reporting that John McCain has selected Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. A strong pro-lifer, Gov. Palin is popular with conservatives. Though some of the significant number of Hillary Clinton’s supporters who say they don’t want to vote for Barack Obama will surely balk at Gov. Palin’s belief in the sanctity of life, others will just as surely be happy to have a woman to vote for. In an election as weird as this one, Gov. Palin could well put the vote over the top for Sen. McCain.
