Frankly, I didn't think McCain would have the courage to really address change in a VP pick. But he pleasantly surprised me.
Governor Palin is a regular person, who embodies working class America. She is a responsible Republican who stands up against corruption, even in her own political party. She is a responsible parent, who balances the needs of the community with the needs and aspirations of her family. She is a responsible American, who is willing to address tough issues and work towards what is best and right rather than what suits the desires of select special interests. She is a responsible maverick and I am a big fan those who know how to think and act independent of the political wind that whirls around them.
Governor Palin is not a Washington DC insider. She does not owe her soul to special this or special that. She is not well connected to lobbyists. She is not your average Republican. She is not the status quo.
Senator John McCain has earned my vote because he found the courage to start his change action plan now! Senator Obama says he wants change, but chose Senator Joe Biden (in the U.S. Senate since 1974). Does that speak to a real change action plan? Until today, I did not see either candidate distinguish himself as an agent of real change. That all changed this morning!
Today I see that Senator McCain understands that real leadership requires risk, that real change only occurs when there is a real catalyst to make it happen, that America deserves real changes over the status quo!
