It has been quite some time since I have gotten ecstatic about the choices made by the Republican Party. An absolutely brilliant pick by John McCain as it stands right now.
She will more than satisfy the Republican Party base. She's staunchly anti-abortion which will make the social conservatives happy. The free market enthusiasts and supply siders at the Club for Growth absolutely love her. She has battled corruption and pork barrel projects.
Her emotional appeal is great as well. She's a mom of 5 kids. Her family didn't just come from a working class background, they live it. Her husband has a blue collar job working on pipelines.
I am extremely pleased.
