Gov. Palin was a bad gamble

Senator McCain is known for his gambling side as well as the Maverick. Many of us know now that Governor Sarah Palin was not a well thought out pick for the VP on the republican ticket. The sad state of the economy may be a contributing factor to Senator Obama’s rise in the polls; however, many of us think Gov. Palin contributes to that as well. Looking at the type of crowds she attracts might be why McCain is losing steam. There is certainly some truth to the old saying “A person is known by the company he keeps.” I believe most Americans are concerned with restoring the direction of the country rather than the type of politics we have had in the past eight years. In my opinion, Gov. Palin and the crowds she attracts is a reminder of the tactics of the Bush administration. Those tactics have lost their usefulness for many that are looking for the country to be steered in a new direction. Let’s be honest, Senator McCain could be doing better in the polls if he had picked a more qualified running mate. The Maverick made a bad gamble.
