The Palin Pick

For most of the last year, I thought the Republicans had no chance in the presidential election. During the fracas between an inexperienced Barack Obama and and an inept Hillary Clinton, I thought the Democrats might possibly blow it.

Today, for the first time, I believe that the Republicans will win. Unless Gov. Palin has a Dan Quayle like deer in the headlights moment -- and all indications are that she is much too sharp for that -- this will prove to be an inspired choice. While some have argued that her inexperience takes Sen. Obama's thin resume out of the equation, in fact, her executive experience further amplifies his lack of credentials. On every other level, both personal and political, she is a compelling candidate.

The disarray of the Obama campaign this morning (with the candidates repudiating their campaign's press release) shows they were caught completely off guard.

For someone who we heard last night "doesn't get it," the Senator from Arizona has acquitted himself well.
