hmmm

Heard an interesting view point today so thought I would share.

A military wife spoke about how every single military family she knew (she currently lives on a base so I'm assuming that is a pretty large number) found Palin to be a laughable choice for McCain.

Their reason...if he dies she becomes their Commander in Chief. Her husband is a Lieutenant and said there was no way a soldier would be comfortable with someone with this little experience and lack of global knowledge being next in line behind a 72 year old. I'm sure her being a woman doesn't help her much either.

This wife went on to say that along with herself many of these families considered themselves "independent" voters and that this choice alone has solidified their choice for Obama.

I have a lot of military in my family, they are all extremely conservative and they always vote Republican. I assumed the majority of troops would vote McCain but it looks as if this may no longer be true.
