Letter to the Editor
When you look back on the drag that Sarah Palin is putting on the McCain ticket it makes you wonder what would have happened if McCain had made a different choice. For example, Governor Mike Huckabee, a true evangelical and a very popular and experienced governor of Arkansas, would have been far stronger. If McCain had chosen Mitt Romney then maybe the economic crisis would have worked in McCain’s favor rather than against him. No one would have questioned if Rudy Giuliani knew foreign policy. Or if McCain wanted a woman on the ticket he could have picked Senator Dole or Hutchinson. And McCain wouldn’t have had to spend $150,000 on clothes for any of them. Unlike Palin, any one else could have done a press conference. But McCain picked Palin – and that’s who he’s stuck with.
