Republican presidential nominee John McCain picked Alaskan governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential choice in an attempt to go after Hillary Clinton supporters in her failed bid to become Barack Obama's VP pick. This move will surely confuse some female Democratic voters who wanted a Hillary on the ticket and do not yet fully endorse Obama. However, Governor Palin is a conservative who is markedly different from Obama, Clinton, or Biden: she is anti-choice (for abortion), part of the National Rifle Association, and is younger than the presidential nominee. However, she is not as qualified and has not had much experience.
