Palin Has 'Maverick' Credentials Similar to McCain

In an announcement, McCain's campaign said that Palin, who has been governor less than two years, "has the record of reform and bipartisanship that others can only speak of."

The campaign also said: "Her experience in shaking up the status quo is exactly what is needed in Washington today."

As governor, she successfully took on the oil industry, leading to a tax increase on oil company profits that has the state's treasury swelling.

Excerpted from her Vice Presidential acceptance speech
Transcript: Palin's Speech In Dayton, Ohio
"Well, it's always, though, safer in politics to avoid risk, to just kind of go along with the status quo. But I didn't get into government to do the safe and easy things. A ship in harbor is safe, but that's not why the ship is built. Politics isn't just a game of competing interests and clashing parties. The people of America expect us to seek public office and to serve for the right reasons. And the right reason is to challenge the status quo and to serve the common good...

"Now, no leader in America has shown these qualities so clearly or presents so clear a threat to business as usual in Washington as Senator John S. McCain. This -- this is a moment when principles and political independence matter a lot more than just the party line. And this is a man who has always been there to serve his country, not just his party.

This is going to be fun. History will be made, one way or another, and it looks more likely now that it will be the right history.

Even more Hillary supporters will go for McCain now. Obama is no longer a near certainty. Heaven forbid something happens to McCain, but I believe Palin would rise to the occasion. She has the right attitude. Everyone knows Obama is NOT ready for POTUS, Palin is only for the VP. Look at Dan Quayle.

YEY SARAH PALIN! YEY John McCain! Great pick! The 1st woman for the GOP VP? SCORE!

It certainly has made it interesting. The one thing thing I haven't heard in regards to Palin being a heartbeat away is the prospect of her against the Ahminedjad's and Kim Jong Il's of the world. The prospect of her against the stronger and more belligerent personalities of the world.
