Alaska Governor Sarah Palin McCains VP "Governor Palin shares John McCain's commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush's failed economic policies. That's not the change we need, it's just more of the same," he said. The choice of Palin was seen as a bold effort by McCain to attract disgruntled Democratic and independent supporters of Senator Hillary Clinton, who was defeated by Obama in the race to be the Democratic Party's presidential nominee. A co-worker of mine stated: She Unseats Hillary as the new ICE Queen from Alaska. It is cold up there. Her accomplishments include being president of the Alaskan National Guard, and her son is serving in IRAQ. Just a moth ago. She was dissing the VP Job. Her comment was: What do a VP do? I feel they do nothing and I don't want a job like that. I am very productive and may become bored.
