Sarah Palin, Smart and Beautiful

Congrats to Sarah Palin, John McCain's VP pick and first female nominee for the GOP. As reports: "Sarah Palin is the surprise pick of John McCain for Republican Vice President nominee, but that is not the only surprise. A former runner-up at the 1984 Miss Alaska beauty pageant, the 44-year old Palin is strikingly attractive and smart to boot".

Palin is a hunting, hockey-playing, intelligent mother of five who makes working mothers heads spin at the prospect of her meteoric rise in the past decade. Regardless of partisan politics, she serves as a strong inspiration to women who are trying to juggle home, career, kids, and significant other and become leaders at their trade. I expect she will be criticized just because of the way she looks despite her intelligence, accessibility, and broad approval from her constituency. She is a great and forward-thinking pick for McCain who is breaking the glass ceiling with the reality of being a working woman and Washington outsider. No matter what the outcome of the election is, it will be a historic moment in November for America!

  1. Funny that I'm reading this today. Last night a male member of m y family said McCain's VP pick is good-looking and that they have his vote. Saying that she is a lot better looking than Hilary! Men...
    Of course, the women and myself in said that her looks are not what we look for in a VP, we need to know that she is intelligent and experienced.
