Will Hillary overshadow or attempt to overshadow Obama at the convention ?
Hillary not chosen but another woman was for VP:
Governor Sarah Palin GOVERNOR:Sarah Palin (Republican) FIRST GENTLEMAN:Todd Palin Sarah's parents arrived in Alaska in 1964 to teach school in Skagway.
After moving to the Valley and graduating from Wasilla High, Sarah earned her Journalism degree from the University of Idaho. She worked in media and the utility industry before beginning her public service 14 years ago.
Sarah was elected to two terms on the Wasilla City Council, and then two terms as the Mayor / Manager of Alaska's fastest growing community. During her tenure as Mayor she reduced property tax levels while increasing services and made Wasilla a business friendly environment drawing in new industry. The responsibility of managing dozens of employees including a growing police department and public works department, and overseeing the multimillion dollar capital and operating budgets provided her with hands-on, 21st Century relevant administrative experience. Sarah's demonstrated leadership was also recognized when she was elected by her mayoral peers as President of the Alaska Conference of Mayors. In this role, she worked with local, state and federal officials to promote solutions to the needs of Alaska's communities.
Sarah served as Chairman of Alaska's Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska's most valuable non-renewable resources: oil and gas. She also served on the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission. Sarah was named one of Alaska's "Top 40 Under 40", Alaska's Public Works "Person of the Year", and was recently inducted into the Sigma Beta Delta Honor Society at Alaska Pacific University.
Sarah's husband is a lifelong Alaskan, a production operator on the North Slope, and the three-time champion of the world's longest snowmachine race (the Iron Dog). Todd and Sarah commercial fish together in Bristol Bay, being joined at their sites with their kids: Track, Bristol, Willow, and Piper. The state's Alaska Native heritage plays an important role in the life of this family.
Sarah has served on numerous boards and commissions throughout the State, and stays active as a marathon runner, sports team mom, hockey manager and school volunteer.
Sarah's a lifetime member of the NRA and enjoys hunting, fishing, Alaska history, and all that Alaska's great outdoors has to offer.
Latest poll among Alaskan's indicate a 80% approval rating in the state.
Looks like both President and Senator Clinton are doing everything they can to get Obama elected. Both of their speeches were compelling. In fact if Hilary spoke as well on her own behalf as she did supporting Obama she might have been the Democratic pick.
Hillary might do that. Who knows what Hillary and Obama will get into at the convention. I can just imagine her debating Obama for different issues. I'm sure her and Obama will probably try to get along at the convention who knows.
To "moistpanda" if by drop out, you mean fight til the very end, and fight until people were pretty much threatening her to end it, then yes, she basically just dropped out...Damn kids, grab a newspaper every once in a while...
I don't think so. I think she's probably trying to persuade Obama delegates to vote for her right now, but that would be covert.
Hopefully she and Bill will lay low and allow this election to pass.
Didnt she basically drop out of the election?
