What You May Not Know About Sarah Palin

CNN is reporting that Republican presidential candidate John McCain has chosen Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate for November's presidential election.

I haven't yet considered the political implications of this choice, or even the fact that McCain has chosen a female veep candidate. I'm more excited because Ms. Palin is the pro-life mama of adorable little Trig Palin, who was born four months ago and has Down syndrome. I'm picturing future photo ops and articles that will hopefully clue people in to the gifts that a child with Ds can bring to a family. What an opportunity! :)

I heard that about Palin too, and I'm anxious to find out more about her!

Big smiles at my house when we heard the announcement. I actually only knew who she was because of her strong pro-life stance and her son with Down Syndrome.

It is an awesome opportunity and she knew before hand that she was going to have a baby with Down's Syndrome and opted to have the child.


I'm very excited about McCain's choice!

It certainly has gotten people's attention, hasn't it? The Internet is buzzing about it tonight :)

I am happy to see your post on this. It's helped me to clarify my thoughts on Mrs. Palin's addition to the ticket.
