I suspect the Democrats will brush her off as some sort of rube, and that would be their demise. She's tough.
How can they attack a VP candidate for lack of experience when their presidential candidate is mired in inexperience issues?
How can they accuse McCain of giving in to oil when she's put the spurs to big oil interests up here in AK?
How can they say McCain is the same old story when she's a reformer that came from outside and took on insider politics in AK?
How can they attack her without looking like condescending snobs or bullies?
She's the Democrats' worst nightmare -- a fashionable woman who's had a successful career while having five kids, is married to a blue-color husband, is a life-member of the NRA, actively hunts and fishes, gets her hands dirty with manual labor, has a son in the infantry about to deploy to Iraq, managed a pregnancy while governor, knowing she was carrying a child with Down Syndrome, and has union connections.
Awesome pick -- wait til the country figures out what Alaska already knows.
