I just got off the phone with someone close to the McCain campaign. I think it gives a good perspective regarding what the McCain folks are thinking right now regarding the pick -- and the predictable Dem attacks. According to this person:
It's amazing to listen to the Democrats start talking about experience all of a sudden. They've just nominated the man who has the lease amount of experience in the modern era.
1. She's already got a better record of reform than Obama.
2. As head of Alaska National Guard, she's got more military experience than Obaman and Biden combined.
The Biden pick was boring and predictable -- and one that had almost no impact on the campaign.
