Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin on the vice-presidency and being pregnant
March 17, 2008
Speculation continues to persist as to whom Republican presidential candidate Senator John McCain will choose as a running mate.
One person frequently mentioned in the mix is the popular Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. Many of us feel that she would do a great job as vice-president.
Then in an interview with the Washington Post in late February 2008; "When asked about whether she would consider the number-2 spot in the country -- the vice presidency... Pursing her lips, Palin calls it an 'impossibility' this time around, but not altogether out of the question.
Many folks did not pick up on her use of the words "impossibility this time around, but not altogether out of the question."
In the video, carried by ABC Alaska News http://www.aksuperstation.com/, also notice the quick cameo appearance of former Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich...
And do not overlook her quick take on the candidacy of Senator Barack Obama...
Then, on or about March 6th, 2008, the matter of the curious words, "impossibility" was explained. Many media outlets carried the news, including the Anchorage Daily News http://www.adn.com/ and ABC Alaska News http://www.aksuperstation.com/; which carried the second half of this video:
"Gov. Sarah Palin dropped a day-ending bombshell. She's pregnant. Palin said Wednesday that she and her husband Todd are expecting their fifth child sometime in mid-May."
When asked about how this new child would affect her, the Governor said, "This is one of those circumstances that has kinda shifted our way of thinking. It certainly makes me very much more so committed to even wanting to stay in Alaska, you know wanting to raise kids in Alaska and at some point in the future I don't know how far off in the future but in some point maybe there will be other doors open."
We certainly look forward to Governor Palin's future national leadership; meanwhile congratulations are in order for the impending birth of her fifth child.
