McCain picks Palin for running mate: Laura Ingraham was right

Laura makes the case for Alaska governor Palin to be the to be first female vice-presidential candidate for Republicans.

As an aside I've heard pundits like Dean Barnett and Mark Levin remark the last few months about her being an "attractive" choice. Speaking of attractive, an earnest Sarah Palin fan page with a slightly unwholesome Web domain -

One of my favourite bloggers Allahpundit of HotAir mused about a possible Sarah Palin choice a few days ago...
Laura Ingraham: Palin for VP?
Actually, Greta’s more excited about the idea than Ingraham is. I’m continually amazed by how much support there is for Palin, basically sight unseen, here in the comments at HA even though putting her on the ticket would obliterate the GOP’s strongest line of attack against The One. She’s personally appealing, represents a physical manifestation of Change, and is alarmingly young and inexperienced for such a momentous job. Remind you of anyone you know? Nor am I sold on Greta’s argument that women voters would flock to her. Conservatives love Palin because she’s down to earth to an extent that’s almost too good to be true... the perceived difference in emphasis might be enough to turn Clintonites off to someone like Palin who doesn’t fit the traditional image of a feminist as well as Her Majesty does...

Still, not the worst VP idea I’ve heard today. Exit question: I’m pretty sure I’ve asked this before, but I’ll ask again. Why would Palin make a better pick than, say, Huckabee?
APF Pundit Glenn Beck offered his endorsement of Sarah Palin and why, they both share a child of special needs.
Perspective, she understands the gift she's been given (in regards to the birth of her child)
