The McCain/Palin ticket got a huge boost from Senator Joe Lieberman (D-Conn.) who says Obama is not ready to lead a nation facing such trials as ours does today. And that McCain & Palin are. Apparently, Lieberman is a popular guy, respected by both sides of the aisle. A guy who puts his state and his country first, and leaves partisanship and "spin" to others.

And what about Palin? Since 2006, she's managed the country's largest state (larger than CA and TX combined); her state is the second largest oil-producing state in the nation; she's overseen a $40 billion GDP; she's created jobs and cut taxes; she's gone after government waste and corruption; she's not immune to the war as her own son prepares to deploy to Iraq; on top of that, she's happily married with five kids.

The Palin family has revealed their seventeen-year-old daughter's pregnancy and the fact that 22 years ago, her husband, prior to their marriage, was arrested for DUI. Do these revelations help or harm McCain & Palin's chances? We're all human, and have faced our share of unfortunate circumstances. Surely none of us can throw stones. Do you wonder if there are any more skeletons in the closet? I would hope they've been up front about everything. I guess we'll see...
