I'm thrilled about McCain's pick, Sarah Palin, for Vice President. The more I hear about this women, the more I like her. I can envision a member of the Executive, the first in my lifetime, being a true role model.
When Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House, I was very inspired. While I disagree with Nancy Pelosi on close to everything of importance, and find her contradictions between Catholicism and values quite appalling, the road she took to get to where she is now is admirable. A mother of five, she stayed at home with her children until her youngest was nineteen. Only then did she venture into politics. I love the dedication to her family and children and the successful results it yielded in her political career.
Sarah Palin is another one of those stories, although because of her dedication to life and ethics issues, I can truly count her as someone to look up to. A mother and a leader, she first became involved in her local PTA. She then was elected mayor, proved effective, and slowly proved herself in state committees and became Governor. Now she's McCain's pick for Vice President.
Her story gives me hope after assuming that to be a nominee it was necessary to go to Yale or Harvard, be born into "old money," and be a part of high society.
A future President might be lurking out there right now, organizing play dates, or raising money for schools. In the "Land of Opportunity," we grow up being told anything is possible. In this situation I believe that phrase.
This Veep is my Peep ;)
