I have a theory .... all of you are free to chop away at it .... I sense that McCain may just win this one and the primary event is attributable to Obama not picking Hilary for the vice presidency. People claim that picking Hilary may have jepoardized his campaign , however , his current state at the moment is probably worse. Obama had not taken into account why people were voting for him , there was a sizeable amount of people who were voting for him to support his historic endeavor as they believed that he had a good chance to win as a very decently qualified African American. He drew crowds of college students with his message of hope. Many followed him believing that his message may be genuine. Yes , there are some people out there that favored him because he is an African American with a cause to change history for the better. Many voted for Hilary because she preached the same message of a change in history. The message was that of a historic change and this would make reality the hopes of many Americans. By not picking Hilary many believed he has placed politics a head of his message , his message of change seems to have been only for African Americans , he displayed very little concern about this same hope within women across the US ; now he is simply a politican and even a chauvinist , all of you have to admit him and Biden together seem to have some sort of a male authoritarian aura about them. It seems to be about the image for Obama. McCain made a brilliant pick out of Palin , he basically went over to Palin and asked her " hello young women would you like to be my vice presidential candidate?" And by doing so , he revived Obama's message of hope and tangiblized the concerns of many disgruntled former Obama supporters. By picking Palin McCain has established to many people that he is aware of and concerned about their hopes.
