It occurs to me that McCain’s choice of Palin puts Democrats in a remarkably uncomfortable position regarding that glass ceiling. Not only are they perceived as having dissed women in their choice of Obama plus Biden and their rejection of Hillary, but now it’s necessary for them to criticize the person who has just become only the second woman nominated for Vice President by a major party.
[ADDENDUM: I just heard an interview with Ferraro on Fox News. She rightly points out that people vote for President and not Vice President. She also called the choice "exciting," and said it will appeal to PUMAs who had been disaffected by the Obama campaign. Did I detect a small note of glee in her voice?]
