My initial reaction to McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin to be his VP was: Who?

This is very out of the box for McCain. On the one hand, you kind figured he’d try something like this, because after watching Obama’s speech, he really to kickstart his campaign. On the other hand, picking a VP is supposed to be a serious choice, with the heartbeat away from the presidency thing and all. Palin, with zero, and I mean zero, national political profile, just doesn’t seem to fit that bill. She’s a major unknown. Under-experienced and unknown.
