Well, again I feel as if I am an American without a political party. But McCain choosing Sarah Palin as a running mate got me a little excited. As a woman, I would love to see her in an executive office plus, I just kind of like her.
However, when I heard she has a 4-month old son with Down's, something else kicked in for me. Maybe maternal instincts, maybe something else but my gut instinct is that she just needs to be home with that baby. Not to mention her other kiddos, one daughter now apparently pregnant at 17. It's not that I don't think she can't handle ALL of the responsibility but how well can one person juggle all of that? I can't help but think that baby needs her.
Does it come down to regrets? Which would be bigger - missing out on a big opportunity to be a major world leader or missing out on your family?
Maybe I am underestimating her or overestimating her family's need for her. Like I said, just my gut instinct.
So, what do you think?
