One of the issues dogging John McCain this election is the fact that he is — well — old. So, if he does win, we might get the first female president after all, since he chose Alaska governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate.
Media frenzy to ensue.
Of course this is a brilliant move. It might bring women voters with anger over the whole Hillary thing. And it sheds all sorts of attention (and the accompanying momentum) on McCain as he heads into the Republican National Convention next week.
