Before I went to bed last night, I said 'I hope I wake up and find that Sarah Palin is the pick. But that won't happen because McCain only ever does things that tick me off!' I think I scared the cats with my 'SQUEEEE!!!!' when I turned on the TV this morning.

Finally, a woman on the Republican ticket! And a woman I can relate to and enthusiastically support. Who would have thought? I teared up a bit when she was announced and as she began to speak. I wouldn't ever vote for a woman just because she's a woman, of course, but to be able to do so this election? Priceless.

This is so exciting!! She's just perfect for this. Its a bold choice and its just made this already interesting race that much more interesting!

I thought McCain wouldn't do it because she'd steal the spotlight from him. And I had a list of reasons why he shouldn't do it, and another why, if he did, she shouldn't accept.

And in spite of it all, I'll be voting for Palin in November. I guess I have to vote for McCain too, to do that -- but I'll live.

I truly didn't believe McCain would do it, even though I've thought she was the right choice for months. I couldn't be more pleased and psyched.

I'm very happy about this - now I have someone I can vote for, instead of only having someone to vote against.
