Who’s the Veep?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the last week, you are aware that Obama has picked Senator Joe Biden as his VP. And you're also aware that the Democratic National Convention was on (at the very least) 7 channels last night. On our satellite, there was even a DNC08 channel. Seriously? The only reason it monopolized all 3 of the major networks (that I can fathom anyway), is that they had a mutual agreement. If CBS had to carry it, the rest did too, otherwise nobody would watch CBS. All for one and one for all.

Thank goodness for Bravo, though I'm still irritated that they sent Daniel home last week on Shear Genius. Whatever!

Anyway, all eyes are on McCain today. Who will he pick? The latest Buzz puts Tim Pawlenty at the Minnesota State Fair, not Dayton. Romney's chances have also been downplayed. Who then? Lieberman? Ridge? My money is on Sarah Palin, governer of Alaska. It's a very smart move. She's Pro-Life and a lifetime member of the NRA, she's tenacious, she's beat out the incumbent in the last several elections as she climbed to the governer's seat, and she's a soccer mom. Oh yeah, and she's a woman.

I imagine the announcement will come soon.
