Palin - "The Best Possible Choice"

Keeping the secret until the very end, Sen. John McCain on Friday picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate, vaulting the 44-year-old former beauty queen to the national stage and setting up a historic race that will end either with the first black president or first female vice president.

Cutting into Sen. Barack Obama's momentum less than 12 hours after the Democrat delivered a rousing speech before 75,000 cheering supporters, Mr. McCain's choice placated anxious conservatives, who had neared open revolt as the Republican maverick toyed with the idea of choosing pro-choice candidates, former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge or Sen. Joe Lieberman.

"She is the best possible choice," Eagle Forum President Phyllis Schlafly, the grande dame of the social conservative movement, told The Washington Times. "She's right on all the important ideas. She is good and true for every argument the Democrats can make."
