I think some are missing the point in this VP situation. McCain picked her knowing all these things. I look at Palin and her family situations as strenghts to the ticket and I think many fair-minded voters can relate to her. I shutter to think about a teenager having to bring a little baby into this world without a strong mother & father as Bristol has. And have you noticed nowhere do you hear this characterized as an unwanted pregnancy by Governor Palin. She has no problem in facing up to whatever challenge comes her way. That used to be something we all looked for in leadership.
True leadership requires sacrifice. You see a leader who has not sacrificed...you don't see a leader.
