Sarah Palin, Smart and Beautiful
Congrats to Sarah Palin, John McCain's VP pick and first female nominee for the GOP. As Makemeheal.com 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!
