According to Palin, if she had been a Democrat, she wouldn't have undergone the same scrutiny. If Obama had picked her there would have been a hewn cry in the party. There is no way she would have been vetted, let alone added to the ticket. Maybe if I received some sort of lobotomy? I knew plenty of Republicans, moderate, Neo-Eisenhower Republicans. Socially liberal, fiscally moderate or conservative who became Obamba-cans after the Palin pick.
