Recently, I received a comment asking why I like Sarah Palin. I decided to make a separate post to address this question. In all honesty, I don't love Sarah Palin or McCain. They are, in my mind, the lesser of two evils, but not my first choice for the presidency. When I first heard that Sarah Palin was chosen as running mate, I was very disappointed because I didn't think she was the best qualified. I still believe that. I think Mitt Romney was much more qualified to fill either the role of president or vice president. But here is what I like about Sarah Palin. Choosing her as running mate was a deliberate political move to win over the "born again" vote, and women's votes. Mitt Romney was a hazard to the "born again" vote because many born agains erroneously believe that Mormons aren't Christian. Sarah Palin, being herself of this religious persuasion, fills their expectations. Then we have all of the Hillary supporters who were so rabid to get a woman in the whitehouse. While many of them won't switch political party just to vote for a woman, still there are those who will vote republican just for this very reason.
What do I like about Obama? He isn't Hillary. What do I like about Sarah Palin? She isn't Hillary. I had enough of the "Clinton reign of terror" to last me a lifetime.
