IS SHE THE ONE?
OBAMA AUTHOR ANDY MARTIN REACTS TO THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE REPORT ALASKA’S GOVERNOR HAS BEEN CHOSEN AS MCCAIN’S RUNNING MATE
(NEW YORK)[August 29, 2008] The leader of the national anti-Obama movement, opinion columnist Andy Martin, will hold a New York sidewalk news conference Friday, August 29th to comment on the expected choice of Alaska’s governor as John McCain’s running mate.
I can now safely report and predict that John McCain is going to be the next President of the United States. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Senator McCain has chosen a woman as his running mate.
Earlier this week in Denver at the DNC, I noted that John McCain could make a game-changing move in his campaign against Barack Obama: McCain could choose a woman for the White House. There are some indications McCain has now done just that.
Later today (August 29th) we will comment on the impact of Barack Obama’s convention speech.
In the meantime, why is the choice of a woman so critical? I teased Democrats in Denver by saying Obama should have chosen Governor Sebelius of Kansas as his running mate. Why? My unscientific opinion: “She dresses like a Republican woman.” I was only party being facetious. But if you saw Susan Eisenhower support Barack Obama Thursday night you know what I mean.
The first African-American president is going to be a Republican, and the first woman president or vice-president is going to be a woman. Why is that? How counterintuitive. The nature of the Republican Party makes it open to social change, but only social change that is channeled within broadly acceptable norms of public policy.
McCain is thinking strategically. He sees that there is disaffection among Democratic woman. Many Clinton supporters are up for grabs. The presidential race is close. Which voters are open to switching their allegiance? Democratic women who supported Hillary Clinton. That is the largest “uncommitted” block of voters available to either McCain or Obama. (Blue collar Democrats are a close second in the “uncommitted” column, but they will find a conservative woman as vice president very acceptable.)
McCain has chosen to seize the initiative and go after the Clinton vote. McCain’s decision shows that he is a brilliant tactician and strategist. Obama lacked the confidence to choose a woman, because he was afraid of offending the Clintons. McCain suffers from no such inhibitions. His decision is going to throw Barack Obama back on his bottom and evaporate the “bounce” out of Denver.
By this afternoon (Friday), McCain will have seized the news cycle and devastated Obama’s post-Denver appeal. People do watch TV and listen to the radio on Labor Day weekend; McCain will have a monopoly on that coverage going into his convention.
Media types do not really understand McCain; in my opinion I do. I once had a roommate who was a navy fighter pilot. I know Navy fighter pilots. They are bold, decisive and have guts to spare. I have not been stinting in either my praise or criticism of McCain in the past, and no doubt I will have critical comments in the future.
But in his choice of a running mate, I can only say, McCain you were my roommate. Bold, decisive, gutsy and clear thinking. We’ve just landed on a carrier; in the meantime, Barack Obama’s campaign has come to a complete and abject stop.
You are going to see the polls shift in McCain’s favor, radically and immediately. By mid-September the liberal news media will be in a mega-funk. Women voters in both parties will be ecstatic.
Welcome aboard, Governor.
Now this indeed will be a historic election. The first woman as vice president.
My money is on the Republicans. Yours should be too.
John McCain just became the next President of the United States.
