Shocked by McCain choice


To the Editor:

I feel compelled to add my voice to the chorus of women who are shocked by Senator McCain's choice of Sara Palin for vice president. McCain is a senior citizen who has had multiple serious health problems. How dare he put us all at risk of leaving our country in the hands of a novice!

Sure, Palin is a charismatic young woman, but she is completely inexperienced in foreign affairs. Americans as well as the global community must wonder if McCain was thinking clearly. What will happen if McCain cannot fill out his term? It seems to me that the very real possibility is chaos in the world.

Furthermore, Palin's positions on choice, stem cell research, environment, conservation, truth telling, separation of church and state, and troop withdrawal are not supported by the majority of Americans.

Clearly she should not be a heartbeat away from the leadership of the free world!
