Today is perhaps the moment of truth for McCain's VP selection being Palin. She would formlly accept the nomination tonight. Bristol being pregnant is perhaps reflective of the task her mother set for her, abstinence, being a task too far, a task over which mother did not accept the independence of the daughter. David Brooks, NY Times, has perhaps a surprising insight into McCain's government view. He mentions the alternative pick of Robert Gates, the current Defense Secretary who has shown an ability which would be complimentary to McCain's. How it would fit administratively is less clear.
