Let's be clear. It is absolute fair to question the intellectual capacity of anyone who was rooting for Hillary Clinton to get the Democratic nomination who isn't now voting for Barack Obama. Senator Obama shares Senator Clinton's policy goals and moral values. If you're a Hillary fan and you're still on the fence, even after her speech at the Democratic National Convention, then John McCain is hoping you're as dumb as he thinks you are. And that's why he's chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate.
Feeling cheated by Barack Obama's ability to run a better, more effective campaign than Hillary Clinton? Well, now you can vote for a woman on the Republican ticket. Ignore the core values that made you vote for Hillary Clinton in the first place. Don't worry about a woman's right to choose or protecting the environment or ending the Iraq War, just vote for any woman at all.
By selecting Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, Senator John McCain is admitting that he knows what the rest of know: that those die-hard Hillary voters who say they won't vote for Senator Obama have lost their minds. The scary thing is that McCain may have figured out a way to take advantage of them.
