Palin refused to share stage with pro-choice Republicans  

From The New Republic:

The day of the third debate, Palin refused to go onstage with New Hampshire GOP Sen. John Sununu and Jeb Bradley, a New Hampshire congressman running for the Senate, because they were pro-choice and because Bradley opposed drilling in Alaska. The McCain campaign ordered her onstage at the next campaign stop, but she refused to acknowledge the two Republican candidates standing behind her.

Wow. I know that the election is over, so there's very little damage that Sarah Palin can still do, but I think it's important to examine this shocking information that's surfacing about her so we can learn from this extremely poor choice of a running mate. We can't blindly accept a candidate because s/he is attractive and charming. We need to question everything. As much of an Obama/Biden supporter I am, I still considered the negative stories surrounding them to ensure that I was voting for the best possible candidate. But I'm hoping that people who blindly supported McCain/Palin realize that they made a huge mistake, because all of this new information that's being to made public really speaks to the poor character of Sarah Palin, as well as to the poor judgment of John McCain for hastily picking her.

What next?

    I guess someone didn't realize that a big part of a debate is to share a stage with people who you disagree with on key issues...
