“Election 2008: John McCain’s choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate is brilliant. Her individualism matches McCain’s. But it’s the new strengths she brings to the ticket that make the team formidable. To say it was a bold pick is putting it mildly. Palin, after all, isn’t well-known outside Alaska. But McCain is maverick-bold, and this masterstroke looks like a game-changer for Republicans. A first look at Palin, 44, shows striking political similarities with the man who heads the ticket. Like McCain, she thinks independently and has shown political courage. Elected governor in 2006, she became popular for tax-cutting and budget-balancing, both hallmarks of McCain’s own career. Also like McCain, Palin has confronted political corruption, even at a cost to herself... Palin is also a straight-talker. As governor of a small-population state, she’s accessible, with a history of working with and listening to people, taking in all sides. She uses plain language and doesn’t fear gaffes. She couldn’t be further from the canned, focus-group-driven politicians who dominate politics. This builds trust. McCain’s and Palin’s similarities present an emerging political coherence and unity of message that should appeal to voters.”
