    The revelation that Sarah Palinís 17-year-old daughter is pregnant wonít change the minds of most people who have already decided to vote for either McCain or Obama. However, both candidates are now fighting for the support of undecided voters. Palinís commitment to abstinence only programs is derived from her ultra conservative philosophy, which is one of the reasons that McCain chose her for his running mate. However, the pregnancy of Palinís daughter constitutes her own life experience that shows that abstinence only education doesnít work well. By association, it raises doubts about the validity of her ultra conservative philosophy, the conservative Republican Party, and John McCain himself. It is no wonder that Republicans are saying that the pregnant daughter is irrelevant to the campaign and should be left alone. They donít want the undecided voters to make the connections. However, they already have. The latest polls show that McCainís numbers are down and Obamaís numbers are up.

    From that moment on, I knew he'd be our next President. Until a few days ago, 70% had never heard of Palin.
    so your telling me until he started running for president 70% of the country had never heard of Obama........ ............my dad is a die hard democrat and he doesnt watch the convention....i dont watch either of them aswell.....why? cause if i wanted to spend hours watching a group of ppl pat each other on the back ill go to the local school board and city council meetings.....least ill get paid to go and sit through those....im guessing the vast majority of the country is the same way, especially about the party they arent a part of.......the reason you never heard of Palin is prolly the same reason i never heard of Obama till he started running.....

    Found this a little bit ago, Larry Kudlow of CNBC's "Kudlow & Co" got the following response when asked about the possibility of becoming the VP:

    I'm used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we're trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.

    been reading up on the book banning incident.....no books were banned....no attempts were actually made to ban any books.....seems she inquired with the Wasilla library over how one would ban books cause some TAX PAYERS approached her with the idea and that was about it......it was brought up at one town meeting and dropped................damn some of yah like to make a mountain out of a mole hill........once again i find this to be a non issue.........there is a list floating around about what books she supposedly tried to ban.....funny thing is a chunk of them were published AFTER 1996 when the issue supposedly happened which means its BS.....its just a compiled list of books that various libraries(public, school and otherwise) across the country have banned at one point or another

    My problem isn't that she asked about having the books banned - it's that she tried to have library staff fired for not helping her to get them banned. That's a very clean-cut abuse of power.

    Check the New York Times article: she did fire the librarian shortly after taking office, but then had to re-hire her due to community protest.

    yeah well the Times magazine could not even get ahold of the librarian in question to get her story.....i want to hear the story from the librarians mouth......working for the county paper ive seen lots of this....5 different story bout what happened usually very different from each other.........if the librarian in question comes out and says yes she tried to get me fired over this ill buy it....till then its hear-say as far as im concerned.....i have actually personally had to cover these types of things with the county and the schools to much to be able to accept anything else.....
