As VP Palin can get the Hillary Supporters for McCain

Palin is female, pro-life and good looking. She keeps the base and can help get the disgruntled Hillary supporters. (Wall Street Journal/NBC poll: 21 percent of Clinton supporters are supporting McCain and that another 27 percent are still holding out)


can obama even win if mccain chooses sarah palin as veep

shes p good lookin for a governor

shes got good conservative credentials and shes backed by everyone in the right wing media shes seen as the future of the gop, but shes also p. liberal on some issues like education or global warming, plus she still approves of offshore drilling and getting rid of reliance on foreign oil. shes very pro-nra so she counters biden there plus she seems to have good economical credentials but more importantly:

shes not only a woman in her 40s, but shes also a feminist so her on the ticket might take away a major number of disgruntled hillary clinton supporters away from obama, even more than now and convince those who arent sure who to vote for to vote for mccain instead of obama

also it would gently caress biden up because theres no way he could try to rip her a new one during the vp debates like he would to romney cause otherwise hed look like an old mysogynist rear end in a top hat attacking a very nice woman

McCain ad aims at swaying Clinton Dems Jonathan Martin

DENVER — Ramping up their effort to drive a wedge between Hillary Rodham Clinton’s supporters and Barack Obama, the McCain campaign is to broadcast a new ad starting Monday featuring the Wisconsin Democrat who lost her slot as a convention delegate after saying she’d cast her ballot for McCain instead of Obama here.


The commercial, which will air in this market as the Democratic convention gets underway, is aimed squarely at the hearts of Clinton loyalists and at the notebooks of the thousands of reporters who are sniffing for the scent of discord between the two primary rivals.

“I'm a proud Hillary Clinton Democrat,” says Debra Bartoshevich, a Racine-area nurse, as she looks into the camera. “She had the experience and judgment to be president. Now, in a first for me, I'm supporting a Republican, John McCain.”

Bartoshevich has become something of a minor celebrity in the political world, especially among die-hard Clinton fans. After making her intentions public in June, she was removed as a delegate at the Wisconsin state Democratic convention. McCain paid the lifelong Democrat a visit last month, offering her a ride on the Straight Talk Express during a campaign swing through the state.

In addition to being featured on TV, Bartoshevich has also come out to Denver. Along with other independents and Democrats supporting McCain — including former Rep. Tim Penny (D-Minn.) and Silver Salazar, the brother of Democratic Colorado Rep. John Salazar and Democratic Sen. Ken Salazar — she’ll hold a press conference Monday morning to tout their support for the GOP nominee.

Additionally, McCain’s campaign said that Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who has become among the GOP’s most visible women surrogates, will be in town to meet privately with some Democrats who backed Clinton in the primary and may not yet be fully committed to Obama.

“The Obama campaign is doing their best to paper over the deep divisions in their party among the many Hillary Clinton supporters who do not want Barack Obama to be president,” said McCain senior adviser Matt McDonald. “We want these voters to know that they still have the choice to vote for a president who is ready in this election and John McCain would welcome their support.

“There are a significant number [of Democrats] that want Hillary Clinton,” RNC Chairman Mike Duncan told reporters today during an open house of the temporary war room the GOP has opened up to counter-program the Democrats this week. “Typically when parties are split, the other one wins.”

A Wall Street Journal/NBC poll released last week made plain why Republicans are trying to play up divisions. According to the survey, 21 percent of Clinton supporters are supporting McCain and that another 27 percent are still holding out.

Which explains the last line in Bartoshevich’s ad

“A lot of Democrats will vote McCain,” she said. “It's okay, really!”

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
