Politics....

I admit I'm not normally one to follow politics. I pick my candidates based on a few important to me topics. Those topics tend to leave the democrats from getting my vote.

This year however I have followed a little more. I actually *gasp* watched some of Sarah Palin's acceptance speech for VP nomination. I will also admit that I am very torn over the nomination. I strongly believe that women are called to be workers at home. However we live in a fallen world with their own ideas of what makes a women "important."

I do like that she is pro-life. I think the fact that her daughter is continuing with her pregnancy does show that. I know that even with the best, most involved parents kids tend to do things that parents don't agree with.

I don't like that because of the jobs that she has had she has spent way too much time away from her family.

I'm with you. It would seem Palin would be a good "man" for the job but on the other hand, I can't help but feel her family is/has/will suffer for it.
