CNN has announced that Palin will be McCain's pick for VP.

UPDATE: FOX News and the CBC are confirming the story.

UPDATE II: LOL, buddy of mine had this as his MSN pic already...

    I think CC's point was just how quickly they put it together.

    Given the time, I'd say that's impressive.

    Who knows, he may even change it later on.

    I'm sorry to be a party pooper, but shouldn't a good Christian woman with a new baby in the house be at home taking care of the baby? Shouldn't her focus be on those kids, and then on making more? Where's the dignity in ripping her out of motherhood? It demeans her and all women.

    I have to agree with "party pooper". I too had a special needs baby and he was my absolute focus. He needed me in ways that other children don't need their mother.

    I don't think it was fair for Senator McCain to put her in this position.

    I'm sure she is a very competent leader but where does motherhood fall into this. Women can be good leaders but God has called her to be a mother and a mother of a baby who will need her in a very intense way.

    I was really shocked to hear that when she went into labor a month early with this child that instead of going to a hospital she gave a speech at an event in Texas then flew back to Alaska. She new the baby was already facing challenges, and was coming early, why would she risk something like that?

    I'm confused by her decisions for her family. I would be looking for ways to have more time with my children and especially my baby.

    God has greatly blessed her with those gifts for a reason. They were a call on her life long before someone offered her a new job.

    This just isn't the time in her life for this sort of demanding, distracting role. She seems like someone I would be great friends with so as her 'friend' I cannot participate in what I think is the wrong direction for her life right now. So, I will have to abstain from voting this year.

    Everyone else can continue to call this a 'great move' for Senator McCain but I just feel this precious woman has been thrown under the bus and needs someone to say its enough for you to go home and be a good mother to those wonderful children.

    Sarah's a big girl, she makes her own decisions. It's not like McCain put a gun to her head. I'm sure he asked/offered, and she in turn accepted.

    The other thing, as well, is that opportunity doesn't always knock when you're ready for it.

    That's actually part of the respect I have for Gerard Kennedy. At first, when I heard he was running, I thought it was a mistake, but in the end it was a good career move, a step forward.

    I believe a McCain/Palin ticket is more rounded than Obama/Biden.

    That's my 3 cents

    anons...a bit of sterotype on the 'Christian mom' judgement. I appreciate you concerns for family, however, being Christian does not determine that a woman is 'stay-at-home'.
    Palin appears to have a strong marriage which is a greater determinant for career choice, and it working outside the home does not mean the family will suffer.
    If she can afford to pay for domestic help, she will probably have more family time.

    Too many anonymous commenters here. Well, I'm willing to put my name with my comment. Palin is a great pick!

    Isn't McCain cynically just trying to get female votes here? What kind of man is so patriotic about his country that he puts American first and politics second, then names such an unqualified person as his VP that should he croak, this former mayor of a town of 7000 and two year Governor of Alaska will become leader of the Free World.

    McCain the patriot? Please.
