The name many seem to be mentioning today for McCain's #2 is Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska.
I know next to nothing about her. I know she has received some good press. But it strikes me at gut level as a mistake. She is largely untested, and could bring the same sorts of problems that certain previous Republican running-mates have presented. Can you name at least 2 such figures from the past, about whom I might be thinking?
