Looks like John McCain has picked Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate. While she is known in conservative circles, she is not as well-known nationally.
Palin is a mother of five and some more bio info about her is here.
Some of my favorite Palin tidbits:
She is the mother of five kids, whose names are Track, Trig, Bristol, Willow and Piper.
She won Miss Congeniality in the Miss Alaska Pageant.
She is known for her intensity.
Her high school basketball team won state.
She married her high school sweetheart.
This is going to be fun.
