It was the late-added presence of SARAH which energized an otherwise moribund and apathetic conservative voting base.
It was SARAH who drew record-shattering crowds, everywhere she went on behalf of a sour and ungrateful McCain campaign.
Friendly little word of warning to any/all RINOs out there reading this, and thinking about standing in the way between this woman and the conservative base that adores her, anytime during the next four years:
You're expendable to us. SHE isn't.
in 1996 McCain followed and campaigned with Dole.
McCain with a few changes copied dole. Other than picking a conservative, he did the whirlwind push the final days.
McCain thought he was “just picking a woman”, he was wrong and did not understand it was the candidate’s conservatism that made the case.
NOBODY here had any illusions about McCain.
Senator Palin would be the counter balance for Hillary Clinton in the Senate.
And your proof of this is what???
