The Ballot is set August 29, 2008

Obama selects Biden for a boost in experience and foreign relations expertise. It seems like a balanced approach. Either one started the year wanting to be the next president and they performed well in all the debates.

McCain selects…. Palin for …? I am not sure about this pick. Granted McCain is experienced and does not need that boost. So, I guess he was looking for the boost in VOTES on the side of the younger generations and women. But if anyone thinks they can convince people she could be the next president, they are sadly mistaken. I found this quote from an Aug 1st, 2008 interview with CNBC about the possibilities of being the next Vice President:

As for the prospect of her being vice president, Palin told Kudlow that she could not answer the question of whether she wanted the job “until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day. I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here.”

…. ummm, Vice President, you know the first in line to the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? WOW! 

I can’t wait to see the debates this year. Obama vs McCain should be interesting, but Biden vs Palin should be …. indescribable.
