the veepstakes, part deux
Mitt Romney seems to be the favorite for McCain's vp pick today, but there are rumors swirling that it may be Alaska governor Sarah Palin. If that's true, it's a very, very smart pick. Palin is young, capable, and very pro-life. And she has a compelling personal story that will pit her and Biden against each other in a contest to see who can make the most soccer moms cry. She's also not an old, white man, which is something McCain needs to make the Republican party seem less homogeneous. (Make no mistake, the Republican party is very homogeneous, particularly in its leadership.)
If McCain picks Romney, he's driving nails in the coffin of his campaign. There's no way evangelical Christians will vote for a Mormon, and when middle America learns that Romney believes that when he dies, he'll become god of his own planet and he and his wife will populate it with spirit children, well, that ain't gonna fly with most of the electorate.
We shall see, we shall see. And I'm sure there will be a shout in the conference rooms today when the word gets out. Somebody text it to me, okay?
