As an active volunteering conservative, I feel like I finally got a bone thrown my way by the McCain camp. He could have picked Ridge, Romney, Pawlenty, Lieberman or another establishment running mate. But McCain gave conservatives a reason to get out and work for him, not just against Obama.

Palin is an up-and-comer in the Republican Party. She has taken on corruption at many levels and even in her own party. She looks at a budget and doesn’t just cut the fat; Palin takes her lifetime NRA membership trigger figure and blows holes in it.

Palin is just as socially conservative as she is fiscally conservative. She is pro-life and pro-marriage. She has five children, one has Down syndrome and one enlisted in the Army on September 11, 2007.

By choosing Palin as his running mate, McCain has leveled the political playing field. Obama is the first African American presidential nominee. Palin is the first female GOP running mate. McCain’s Achilles heel of age is neutralized by the youth and energy of Palin. Obama’s grey-haired DC insider running mate is opposed by a true change-agent who has changed the status quo.

I can feel the adrenaline rushing through the GOP as our enthusiasm raises with McCain’s brilliant VP pick. On to November!

You are dead on.

I would add Mike Huckabee to that list. Too fiscally liberal and pro-open borders for me.

Palin is perfect. As pro-life, pro-gun and pro-reform as you can get.

Way to go McCain!
