McCain picks Palin...
McCain is showing that he has the experience, the character, and the wisdom... to collapse in the face of his party's demands.
His "social conservative" bona fides were in question, after all. He claims to be in favor of overturning Roe vs. Wade, but you have to remember he was in favor of Roe vs. Wade before he was against it. He'd called Jerry Falwell and his ilk "agents of intolerance" and now he's playing kissyface with some of the most intolerant evangelicals out there. He was opposed to the Bush tax cuts, and now he's in favor of them.
He had to pick someone who represented what his party likes, so he did. Pro-gun, anti-choice, creationist - oops, I'm sorry "teach the controversy". And she's just like McCain; she was in favor of the "bridge to nowhere" before she was against it. she can flap with the wind with the best of them.
Yes, this was, in fact, a perfect pick for John McCain. It exemplifies what his campaign is all about.
John McCain: a born panderer.
John McCain: the courage to collapse.
John McCain: An experienced follower.
But don't worry, I'm sure that the Republicans will find many cases where John McCain can "demonstrate leadership". They like to have their candidates do that, because it's a hell of a lot easier than, you know, leading.
