Too late. McCain / Palin FAIL
This pick by McLame shows what a lousy prez he would have made.
Its up to Obama to lose the election. He could stop campaigning now if he wanted.

I am stealing a quote (about Palin) from RenoAnne , Americablog, "She should really just focus on her strengths and lay down on the stage with her legs in the air."
Sexist, YES, Funny YES!

I am all for Palin staying on the ticket. It will remind us about McCain's inability to make intelligent decisions.
But I do love the quote about B.S. it is spot on!

Obama should have made sure her name came up when McCain started in on his lack of experiance during the debate. He could have done it by omission. I can't imagine his reasons for letting it go by.

Palin was put on the ticket to energize and mobilize the far right evangelical base, which McCain could not. She is doing just that. They are pumped. They do not care in the least what she says or how badly. You can't win the majority of voters by going to the far far right with the VP pick, but with this revitalized base you can get close enough. Purged voter rolls, missing voting machines, and exit polls that no longer work [with electronic voting systems] will make up the difference and then some --- like in 2004. The Palin pick was a clear indication of their strategy --- unless stopped, the fix is in.

Sarah, you really should have stayed in school and gone for a higher degree. You don't know enough to do this job properly. Take some geography, history, political science, philosophy, logic, public speaking courses - get an M.A. at least - maybe a Ph.D. - in a field that has something to do with running a government.
Go home, raise the kids, and try later when all this has been forgotten.

McSame chose Palin for only two reasons --- to get the vote of the Hillary supporters and to energize the anti-choice ultraconservative base. He didn't take the time to properly evaluate her knowledge. Ordinarily the vice-presidential pick isn't that critical, but McSame is 72 years old and has had four bouts with cancer. Palin is truly a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Change you can trust, a slogan that could turn around McCain's campaign?
Change you can trust contrasts beautifully with change you can believe in.
Everyone wants change, only with a team that we can trust to implement it.
If you're in a tough spot, you want someone to come to help you that you can trust, not someone you believe may want to help you.
John McCain, polls show, is rated as highly qualified and highly trusted. This slogan, change you can trust, reinforces this message.
It can even be added on to John McCain’s current slogan. Country first, change you can trust. Or perhaps Change you can trust that puts Country first. Or how about Change you can trust that puts America first
It implies without directly saying it that the other side is perhaps a little less trustworthy.
It also reinforces the message that in a time we were facing battle with Al Qaeda worldwide and two conventional wars, John McCain is a commander in chief you can trust to lead us to victory.
There are 30 days left before Election Day. Sarah Palin’s debate performance was good, but it's really up to John McCain to win.
CHANGE You Can TRUST
CHANGE You Can TRUST to put COUNTRY FIRST
CHANGE You Can TRUST to put AMERICA FIRST
CHANGE - TRUST
John, are you listening???
