Thoughts on politics

For whatever reason, John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate triggered something in me; five children, one of them an infant, and she's going to be running around the country to campaign for Vice President?

Not that the male candidates get off scot-free here, either; they're all leaving wife & children at home while they fly around the country. What kind of leader is it whose wife or husband doesn't mind the fact that he's gone all the time? Even when I agree with someone 95% of the time on the issues (as is the case for me with Gov. Palin), this gives me pause.

I'm sure her husband will be taking a leave of absence to help her out. Unfortunately, this is the price of injecting some young new blood into the national scene.

Yeh - her husband is a "house husband!"

Actually, isn't he a fisherman by trade? Maybe he spends more time at home than most, but he's not exactly "Mr. Mom".
