Ii shall be an understatement of the century if I said I could foresee Mccain's fatal hubris wen he chose Palin as his running mate and before wen he would put dignity to shame wen he would appalingly take picks too crude ones at dear Old Obama the epitome of dignity,righteousness Obama.Sorry to be writing the obituary before the patient has expired, but the pick of Sarah Palin was fatal to John McCain's campaign, and he should have seen it coming.But cant blame him he's already 72 and dont expect rational behaviour or choices from him wen he presumed or cud see his ship sinking,had to to take the world by surprise or shock better to put it this way so that his eccentricities add upto his ''Maverick'' title to the T.
Remember, McCain was finally gaining some traction in his campaign by derisively calling Barack Obama a "celebrity" and questioning his readiness to lead the nation.
So who does he pick for a running mate? A folksy mother of five who draws big crowds but
knows little about the U.S. government or world affairs.
I guess McCain was enamoured with the idea of a team of mavericks, but Palin's maverick credentials were inflated. She never really said "thanks but no thanks" to that Bridge to Nowhere, for instance.
Palin did irreparable damage to McCain's credibility. The strange thing is, her political future appears set to soar, even as she sunk McCain's.
