By the way, my feelings about Palin echo those of Mark DeMoss, former chief of staff to Jerry Falwell and quoted by many the past 2 weeks.
*she is a cipher because we don't know who she is. We know people say who she is. Each person has decided on who she is based upon their own pre-judgements, but they don't know who she really is. To some.. she is Hockey Mom, to others she is Machiavelli in lipstick. I wish we could find out tonight. Hopefully in the next 2 months we will find out a little about the real politician, so people can make informed decisions instead of these Identity Politics decisions based upon nothing real (yes, I think it is irresponsible to decide to vote for McCain based upon her. Vote for McCain based upon McCain or feelings about Obama. But, you don't know her. Wait. Be patient. She may be worth it, but you don't know yet.)
