Excellent pick. I'm thrilled with the selection; she's a wonderful pick strategically as she takes the wind right out of Obama's sails. She gives the women who supported Hillary a good reason to take another look at the GOP.
She also neutralizes Obama's advantage on the basketball court, as she played point guard on the state championship girls' team. Nickname: Sarah Barracuda.
As I have pointed out in the past, the dynamics of this race have changed dramatically over the summer. Obama seems on the defensive, while McCain is taking charge of the campaign. To continue the basketball meme, Obama's trying the four corners offense against Al Maguire. Didn't work for Dean Smith, won't work now.
