Huh? Hillary fans elated at Palin

This is one of the best advantages of Sarah Palin on the McCain ticket. Obama and his team kicked the women to the curb, and the GOP walked over, and invited them on board. Geraghty the Indispensable notes that the Hillary fans are quite taken by Sarah Palin:

Holy smokes! At this Hillary Clinton forum, called... HillaryClintonForum.net, the frustrated Hillary supporters are thrilled - almost as joyous as the glee coming from my readers. Comments include:


Leave it to the GOP to pick a woman for the ticket. Obama snubbed the most viable and experienced woman who received 18 million votes, for another MALE. I have a feeling, somewhere somehow, Hillary is snickering!

If this is true, this moves me from staying at home to voting McCain.


They may not be a representative sample of Hillary's 18 million supporters, but obviously, a certain number of those folks are elated to see a woman on a major party ticket, and are talking about donating and volunteering for the McCain-Palin ticket.

I get the feeling that this was expected, as one of my McCain guys just told me, "I think Obama will find that she's more than just a 'sweetie.'"

And now, about a week later... the Biden pick looks pretty crappy, huh? Is Obama sure he doesn't want Hillary on the ticket?

UPDATE: A reader notes, "The Democratic National Convention was a woman-palooza. Hillary's speech celebrated women's progress. Michelle's speech celebrated Hillary shattering the glass ceiling. Talk talk talk. Guess which party has a woman on the ticket."

Make no mistake, she's got her work cut out for her. She needs to be prepared for the national scene. This isn't the sticks. This is the big leagues. She'll be ready, we're sure of that, but she'd better be smart on her feet when it comes to Joe Biden. Yeah, Biden's a joke, but the guy knows quite a bit about foreign affairs. It shouldn't take her long to bone up on foreign affairs, and she's been a proponent of the surge in Iraq. Given her state's close proximity to Russia, I'm sure she was watching the Russia/Georgia row as it unfolded.

I know people like Rush Limbaugh are going to whine about appealing to Hillary voters because we're "watering down the party." Memo to Rush, they're not going to stick around and join the party. They're hopping on board out of anger at their party for treating Hillary like crap. So don't fret. After all, you can't get much more conservative than Sarah Palin. Pro-life, pro-gun, pro-drilling, pro-reform.
