Note: The main column for today, about Gov. Sarah Palin, is below this one.
I'd like to appeal to Gov. Palin, who apparently does read this blog regularly, to avoid making any precipitous decision about not accepting the vice-presidential nod. Please go to your meeting with John McCain and listen to what he has to say. McCain needs you, and so does your country. You have an excellent chance of becoming this nation's first female President.
The following link is from Alaska TV features Gov. Palin about her recently announced pregnancy and her interest in national office. I urge you to take a look at this remarkable woman, America's most popular elected official, discussing her future. http://www.aksuperstation.com/news/16320496.html?video=pop&t=a
Sarah, congratulations to you, Todd, and your family on the impending birth of your fifth child. (We have five daughters and think it's a great number.)
