Clique? What clique? some of us socialise, some dont. But there has never been any collusion of opinions as far as I'm aware. That's silly. And I still think Sarah Palin is dangerously right wing and inexperienced, I dont think her creationist views are in tune with the modern era, and I'm extremely worried that she may one day have a direct influence on my life. I though John McCain should have been chosen over George W eight years ago (I was in the US watching the pre nomination debates and was very impressed with him - just to counteract, Markadams, your view that I sit in Tel Aviv all the time...peculiar...) but I think he has now passed his sell by date. Obama could have chosen a "trophy" VP, someone younger, jazzier, a female, but he went for a counter Balance
in experience and foreign policy involvement, and this shows, to me, a pragmatic and measured step rather than the somewhat desperate move of McCain picking a "sensation" who may or may not stand up to scrutiny.
