Palin Comparison ~ I Quayle To Think Who's One Heart Attack Away...

Obama taps Biden. McCain taps Palin. In the past, the Bushes tapped Quayle and Cheney. As candidates, Gore picked Lieberman and Kerry picked Edwards, both politicians who have had curious pathways since. And let's not forget Kennedy picked Johnson. The VP is the backup in case of ailment or attack or accident. It's a key choice to pick well, to tap great talent, to appreciate a long-term pattern of commitment and experience. Selecting otherwise reflects more negatively on the judgement and character of the President-candidate than the ticket choice. I will be curious to see how American voters compare and contrast the candidate tickets for US President this November.
