Supermodel Vice-President Sarah Palin

Has a possible Vice-President been on the cover of Vogue before? Al Gore, maybe?

I'm a bit non-plussed over both the Dems and the Reps vice picks this time around. I've never cared much for Joe Biden. I think it goes back to when he got hair plugs.

As for Sarah Palin, I'd not heard of her til I was up in Washington last month. Alaska news is news in Washington.

It has long seemed odd to me that we go through a long long process to pick a nominee, with the nominee thoroughly put through the ringer during the process. And then that nominee gets to pick who would replace him.

It's not like that's never happened. Just in the last 60 years, Truman replaced Roosevelt, LBJ replaced JFK and Ford replaced Nixon.

We've gone 34 years without a Vice President taking over. It would seem we're overdue for such a thing. John McCain is 72. Sarah Palin is a bit more than half his age.

Sarah Palin has been a governor for 2 years. And before that served 2 terms on the Wasilla, Alaska city council from 1992 to 1996 and then was elected mayor of Wasilla twice, in 1996 and 1999.

The possible future Vice-President got a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism at the University of Idaho.

When I heard who McCain picked I wondered wasn't Elizabeth Dole available?

A possible vice president of the United States still hasn't been on the cover of Vogue; that's a photoshopped fake.
