I read with interest an article on Yahoo News today that the McCain camp has already decided to make Sarah Palin the scapegoat should McCain lose the election. There is already buzz about her being a "whack job diva" circulating. No one seemes to know why John McCain even picked her as his running mate in the first place given that he admittedly didn't know her very well when he chose her. If you'd like to read the whole article go here:http://news.yahoo.com/s/politico/20081030/pl_politico/15073;_ylt=ArACGxm9ORG3uuJ6EPAVapf9xg8F. This news only reinforces my conclusion that McCain should have listened to his advisers more carefully. What do you think?

That is sad. She is not the only reason that he may lose the election. That is so sad. They should have spent more time and need to spend more time telling us their plans instead of all the attacks, in my opinion.

There seems to be little doubt that the nastier attacks on Palin are being leaked from the Republican camp. I honestly think that a lot of Republicans are just afraid she will not take her fifteen minutes of fame and then fade quietly away. They are afraid she will want to be the future face of the Republican party and they will do anything to stop that.

I don't know why either candidate picked who they did. We would have had a really good race had they both been smarter. Obama should have picked Hilliary and McCain should have picked Romney. Then we would have had two potentially decent teams of leadership. Heck personally I wish it were a Hilliary vs Romney political race instead of the two we got. If wishes were fishes.

I agree. From what I read the big dogs in the party were blindsided by her choice. But they hoped her "newness" would be a plus. These were the same people who were so critical of Hillary Clinton, but they hoped having a woman on the ticket would attract women voters. But I don't think they were ready for the fact that she really is uninformed about reality. I still find it odd how her handlers kept her quiet for so long. When they let her loose to be the attack dog she went too far too often. If the Democrats take over the White House, the Senate, and the House many will lay the blame of the Republican failure at her feet even more than McCains.

I am with the writer of the article. McCain himself was unfit to take office in the first place. He is too old, and not good enough health. His plans were pages ripped out of Dubya's playbook, and no one wants yet another 4 years of that mess. And to top it all off, he never really did campaign, all he did was sling mud at Obama, so people wouldn't look in his direction. All I see this as is the end of a slow and very disgraceful defeat.
