I don't much care for the article in today's Washington Times making the case for Sarah Palin. It focuses almost exclusively on the fact that she recently gave birth to a son with Down syndrome, rather than aborting the child. I'm sure everyone will agree that was an admirable choice, but it also has little to do with Palin's strengths as a prospective VP candidate.
We were on the Palin bandwagon pretty early. She's extremely sensible on energy and environmental issues, she's extremely popular at a time when few Republicans are, and she might be able to help McCain make inroads with Hillary Clinton's base as well as his own (El Rushbo is a huge fan). She's be an interesting choice.
Fred Barnes profiled her for THE WEEKLY STANDARD last July. Read it here.
