1. No one knows. For instance, a lot of people complaining Bush of his policy in Iraq. In fact, there are almot half of the nation population voted for his reelection. So did you think they vote for the wrong person?
McCain chose her with several reasons. The main reason is Palin conserve a lot of traditional American value, such as family, guns, and so on. Since JFK, although it is a half and half situation (half of the president from congress and half from state governor). But recently, more governors get elected because of their skill, such as Reagan, Carter, Clinton, George W. Bush. And Palin is the only governor in this election. So you can really think about this choice.
