I agree that this move is to draw the Hillary vote. Her looks will not hurt. I'm torn on who has more experiance Palin or Obama.Like I said in the other thread this is a very bold strategic move (most likely to draw the Hilary fans). I think it will help him in the election.
The are going to try to push her as progressive in terms of her energy policy, I would think:What sticks out in my mind is her stance on energy. She is a HUGE voice for responsible drilling in alaska. I remember her talking about how alaska should be allowed to give BACk to the US and help heating and fuel prices get back to where they should be.
then she signed a lawsuit against the us gov. becuase of all the environmentalist blocking of her state's natural resources.
Palin's tenure is noted for her independence from big oil companies, while still promoting resource development. Palin has announced plans to create a new sub-cabinet group of advisors, to address climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions within Alaska.
Shortly after taking office, Palin rescinded thirty-five appointments made by Murkowski in the last hour of his administration, including the appointment by Murkowski of his former chief of staff Jim Clark to the Alaska Natural Gas Development Authority. Clark later pled guilty to conspiring with a defunct oil-field-services company to channel money into Frank Murkowski's re-election campaign.
In March 2007, Palin presented the Alaska Gasline Inducement Act (AGIA) as the new legal vehicle for building a natural gas pipeline from the state's North Slope. Only one legislator, Representative Ralph Samuels, voted against the measure, and in June Palin signed it into law. On January 5, 2008, Palin announced that a Canadian company, Transcanada, was the sole AGIA-compliant applicant.
In response to high oil and gas prices, and in response to the resulting state government budget surplus, Palin proposed giving Alaskans $100-a-month energy debit cards. She also proposed providing grants to electrical utilities so that they would reduce customers' rates. She subsequently dropped the debit card proposal, and in its place she proposed to send Alaskans $1,200 directly and eliminate the gas tax.
funny because the hardcore conservative dont like mcCain much and call him liberal.I dont have a problem with many forms of conservatives. I just really dont like neoconservatives like Bush and his people, and since McCain has decided to follow their footsteps, I dont much like McCain either. I think that I've said a few times that I thought McCain was pretty solid in 2000 before he sold out.
