There is no way to comment on McCain's pick for vice president from here. However, it might be interesting to see how one US conservative from New York City and one who claims to have lived and worked in Alaska sees it:
What about personal -- professional background? Some perspectives: I've both lived and worked in Alaska and have been to Wasilla. .....Wasilla is a nice town in a great state. But there's Hawaii, Indonesia, Kenya, Washington and the south side of Chicago. And there's Wasilla. There is absolutely no way you can stand in the middle of the small town and think that a 44 year-old whose formative personal and professional experience comes from there is ready to lead the free world.
