[QUOTE=coolcolors;2121698]Unfortuntaly she has baggages…and ethical problems back home…oh yeah she has a nanny to watch her kids…so she isn’t the typical middle working class woman sorry to say…notice how she first came out talking about family values now where is the family values??? Wasn’t she all about family values and principles.[/QUOTE]
She is more the “average” person than McCain, Obama or Biden by a mile. She has earned everything she has achieved and hasn’t relied on a family steeped in politics for decades, a husband being a previous president, family wealth etc. She not only took on the opposition party in Alaska but she took on her own party, won and then cleaned house. She, and her family, took an absolute beating from the media the past week and last night she shook it off and delivered a knockout punch in the first round.
As for family values, what are they exactly? IMO, they are what each individual family determines. Not what some politician defines them to be. I think her life experiences are the same as many families have faced, and are facing, day in and day out. In fact, she has experience in so many categories it almost defies belief. No matter what side of politics you support, belittling Palin as not being from the marrow of Americana is ignoring the obvious. She looks to be the real deal and I suspect that many, many people from all walks of life will see it. I, for one, am so glad to see someone on the political stage that isn’t steeped in the Washington, DC inside the Beltway politics or the product of a corrupt political machine. I can only hope as time goes on she is as genuine she appears to be at this moment.
