Nov. 4 was a dramatic day in politics in the U.S.A., and some of the drama is owed to Sarah Palin, governor of Alaska.
John McCain did not take a risky step in selecting her as his running mate. He knew exactly what he was doing. His instincts are such that he knew this lady has a great future in politics for all the right reasons.
Win or lose he knew that he had an opportunity to give the American voter a candidate who will stand through any kind of trouble to do what is right. When the dust settles she will be remembered, never to be forgotten, for her contribution to the Republican Party. Her charisma, her speaking ability and her ability in uniting not only the party but the public at large will make her a formidable candidate in the future.
Sen. McCain will have paved the way for an outstanding woman to take her place in American politics. Watch out boys for 2012.
