For the record, i’m an independent, but this election I support John McCain, mostly becuase I think Obama and his “ideas” are full of shit. When McCain picked Palin, my first thought was “i’d hit it,” and then “well, if she can rally the conservative vote, more power to McCain.”
Fast forward 4 weeks. McCain has lost the excitement Palin brought to the ticket. She has looked AWFUL in interviews. I had to stop watching the Katie Couric interview it got so bad. The bump McCain got by picking Palin is a thing of the past. Now, he is stuck with her and I, like a lot of McCain supporters, are very very worried about thursday. Who doesn’t think McCain would love to have Romney, Pawlenty, or heck even Lieberman (if his party would let him) on the ticket RIGHT NOW. Maybe by picking Romney or Pawlenty he might not ave gotten the big convention bounce, but nobody can argue that he would be in a MUCH better position in regrards to the polling and winning the election.
There have been a number of conservative republicans telling the media that while they supported Palin, she is becoming a liability for McCain and should drop out. More lackluster performances on the national spotlight and her and McCain may be toast.
So, does Palin stay or go? Can McCain still win with her on the ticket? Granted, Biden is doing Obama no favors, but he’s not nearly the liability that Palin is.
