Senator McCain’s choice of Governor Sarah Palin does not guarantee that women will flock to McCain. But he has electrified the “Hillbloggers” some of the staunchest supporters of Hillary Clinton. The common refrain is “Obama will regret not choosing Hillary now!” Some of the hillary-blogger comments included:
A post on Tennessee Guerrilla Women, a blog run by Hillary supporters in the state, said the Palin pick will cause large numbers of women to “once again tune into politics. And karma will once again prove to be a total [pain] for Barack Obama and the party elders of the undemocratic Democratic Party! “Barack Obama should have begged Hillary Rodham Clinton to be on his Democratic ticket. John McCain may well be about to bring that chilling fact home to Barack Obama.” On the group blog Feministe, Jill Filipovic, a 20-something New Yorker, worried that the Palin pick would “woo white suburban politically moderate female voters” from the Dems. Palin “has a solid resume. She’s not an old white dude, which makes McCain look less stodgy. Biden will have a harder time debating against her without coming across as a bully (especially since he’s something of a loose cannon prone to idiotic slips of the tongue, despite being an excellent debater). She could potentially woo white suburban politically moderate female voters. She’s likable and has a very all-American story. She has a son in the military. The media is already swooning over her. “All that said: She doesn’t have much foreign policy (or any other governing) experience, which puts a dent in McCain’s argument that experience is everything. But… yeah, this was a smart choice on McCain’s part. Damn.” No Quarter USA, an online hub for anti-Obama Hillary supporters, had this comment from Danny in Alaska, a disaffected Hillary Democrat who had pledged not to vote for Obama, on a news post. He called Palin an independent and said a “vote for MCCAIN IS NO LONGER A PROTEST VOTE! I want bumper stickers.”Source Washington post
