Republican VP choice should contrast Palin
Placeholder Image
When John McCain wrapped up the Republican nomination four years ago, one person was reportedly at the top of his vice presidential list -- Sen. Joe Liebermann. Instead of going with his gut, he went with the advice of his inner circle and picked Sarah Palin, the then unknown governor of Alaska. The selection of Palin raised eyebrows after she performed so poorly in national interviews, but McCain’s advisers certainly accomplished their goal of throwing a curve ball into the election.
