Most people will tell you that the voters vote for the person running for President, not the VP nominee. I agree, but one can not overlook what Sarah Palin has meant to the McCain campaign. It was my belief that if Palin flopped last night the McCain campaign would be on life support, thankfully the McCain campaign let her take off the training wheels and be herself.
Palin not only held her own, she won the debate.
The main street media is never going to like Palin. She uses phrases they can’t stand like, gee williker, gosh, and say it ain’t so Joe. What the media fails to realize is this is what you hear on Main Street. Palin communicates directly to your average American, something more politicians should do. For a woman who’s been in the national spotlight for 5 weeks, I’m impressed with her.
While this debate will help the McCain campaign, his campaign still has an up-hill battle in the last month of the campaign. I also think that McCain’s support of the Senate Bailout plan doesn’t do anything for him either. Sure something needed to get done, and yes Obama voted for it as well, but this bill is loaded with Pork Barrel projects something McCain is adamantly against.
Does this sound like Main Street to you?

Didn’t think so.
