AK Governor Sarah Palin is an articulate, intelligent, driven and competitive woman. She also happens to be a “maverick”, which in Washington is a welcome change. I am proud to have been witness to the first woman on the Republican Presidential ticket. John McCain has chosen brilliantly. While a few will stop at nothing to attempt to bring her down, most of us “out here in fly-over-land” (AKA “the middle”) see her as someone who is LIKE US! BRAVO! Sarah, YOU GO GIRL!
