Knock it off
There's some hand-wringing already starting to manifest itself in the liberal blogosphere over the Palin pick. But really, the fundamentals on this are simple: VP's rarely provide a significant benefit to the top of the ticket. At best, you hope that they won't hurt you. So I don't think Palin, despite some of the positives being talked about, has much chance of helping McCain. But she has a huge potential to destroy his candidacy because she obliterates one of the main attack points the Republicans have used against Obama: that experience matters.
