Like many Republicans I've been scouring the conservative landscape for a candidate for vice president to run with John Mccain and also beat Hillary, with my guess being that Hillary will choose Bill Richardson as her running mate.
First, we know that Senators have long had a difficult time, due to voting procedures getting elected President or Vice. I would have to agree with many that a Governor would be nice to add to the administration.
Second, when running against a female and hispanic on the Democrat ticket, I am loath to think that we'd propose two more white guys for office. Sorry, but I had to say it blunt so the naive would pick it up.
I ran across the following story today, America's Most Popular Governor, spotlighting the success of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Strong willed, ethical, straight talking, pro-life, and willing to fight the Republican establisment. Now we're talking. I like this idea.
Update: Sarah Palin, a former mayor of Wasilla, won the 2006 Republican primary race for governor of Alaska, defeating incumbent Frank Murkowski. She won the governorship, defeating the Democratic candidate Tony Knowles, and independent candidate Andrew Halcro. She became the first female governor and youngest governor in the history of the state.
I've done some digging among my peers on Active Rain and am awaiting some of their thoughts on their governor's credentials for Vice President. Will post those when I receive.
