My top picks in no particular order:
- Fred Thompson
- Michael Steele
- Sarah Palin
- Carly Fiorina
Update: Foxnews says it’s Palin.
Whew… I’m not sure what to say.
Personally, I would have preferred Michael Steele or Fred Thompson… That said Palin’s a great choice, grass roots conservatives are energized/excited by it, inside the beltway “conservatives” who are confounded by it, the media weenies who were pushing Lieberman are apoplectic over it and demorcrats are whining. All in all I don’t think McCain could have made a better choice, Palin has solid conservative credentials, she’s intelligent, articulate and attractive. She should help McCain win over grass roots conservatives who don’t like or trust him.
