John McCain has chosen Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his vice-presidential candidate on the Republican ticket for the White House. The 44-year-old Palin, now in her first term as governor, is the first woman and the youngest person to hold the state’s top political job. Because Sarah is so young putting Sarah on the ticket has the potential to unite more conservative voters who are concerned about John’s age behind the Republican ticket when election day arrives.
On the Issues, Governor Palin is pro-life, believes marriage should only be between a man and a woman, is for capital punishment, and supports the right to bear arms. Her strong stance on family values and her own family will sway conservative voters otherwise undecided.
