I am puzzled! McCain is using the same rhetoric that Obama has been using for several months -- "change". The difference in this scenario is, McCain had many chances in helping to implement some of these changes while serving under George Bush. Instead, like many politicians he chose to remain silent and preferred the easy way by consistently being a "yes" man, fearful of ruffling feathers.
Now we have a relatively unknown, whining voiced candidate serving as McCain's running mate with all the answers her constituents want to hear and in some respects using some unsuspecting women as pawns. So this is the change if which he speaks.
I would not begin to question her role as being a good mother, but certain family issues have already entered the campaign that have no bearing on the state of affairs this nation must deal with. The media relishes in exploiting just as they did with the Bill and Monica affair. My concern is getting to the root of the monumental problems facing the citizens of this great country and leaving your personal life at home.
The "hockey mom" approach does not hold water where I am concerned and is merely a theatrical tactic to gain support from those voters sympathetic to a candidate who has been heavily buttered up by her party overshadowing many solutions and questions yet to be answered.
