Interesting choice, I think. She is young, 44, conservative, and good looking. When the word started coming out that she was his choice, I 'used the google' to find out a bit more about her. On the Wonkette* blog, they refer to her as a GILF (Governor I'd Like to F***). It may be a bit sexist to say it, but yeah, I can see it..... (she is a former beauty pagent queen)
She is hot, but like too many beautiful women, she comes with some baggage:

She is a former mayor of Wasilla who became governor of her state in December, 2006 after ousting a governor of her own party in a primary and then dispatching a former governor in the general election.
More recently, she has come under the scrutiny of an investigation by the Republican-controlled legislature into the possibility that she ordered the dismissal of Alaska's public safety commissioner because he would not fire her former brother-in-law as a state trooper.
Biden will put chew this woman up and spit her out in the Veep debate......
*since then, the Wonkette has been unreachable...... look for the term GILF to enter the American politicial lexicon, at least out of earshot of the press.
