but Katia - you don't vote for who you want to be president based on how much you like the choice of VP - You can think Palin is great as much as you want but you'd still have to vote for McCain, and if you think he's an old fogie, not in touch with the vast majority of US citizens, and not right for the post, then you either vote Obama or abstain. You don't get a chance to vote for Palin.
I don't have the impression from Katia's post that she'd vote for McCain/Palin. Like me, she sees the good choice in Palin as a running mate and what she adds 'to the ticket' but that does not imply that you'd want that to be the winning ticket. On the contrary, where I am concerned.
