On August 25 (prior to Palin's announcement), I wrote a blog titled, "Why Is Barack Obama So Afraid of Women?" It is even more apparent after the announcement of Governor Palin that he is afraid to compete with women.
From almost the beginning of his campaign, John McCain has had women in the forefront. With the exception of Tucker Bounds, God love him, most of McCain's spokespeople are women. Most of the people campaigning for John McCain have been women. (Carly Fiorini and Meg Whitman to name two). It is rare on TV over the last several months to see a woman spokesperson on TV for Senator Obama. I'm not saying there aren't any, they just haven't played prominent roles.
Don't think Sarah Palin was a complete shock to the Obama campaign either. In the same blog mentioned above I spoke of how Obama supporter, Hollis French, was the one leading the "troopergate investigation" of Governor Palin. I will give some more information on that story later. On August 4th, someone from the DNC checked out the Palin for VP blog as well. Check out the proof here.
When Senator Obama passed on Hillary Clinton, he did not believe that Senator McCain would have the courage to pick a woman. Ask any Clinton supporter and they will tell you that there was little effort made to bring their groups into the forefront. Unfortunately for Obama, nothing that they have tried to bring down Governor Palin has worked, so he has decided to bring out the big guns to fight his battle.....women.
On Monday, the Obama Campaign is sending Hillary Clinton to Florida to try to move women to his side of the aisle. Obama supporters have claimed that Senator McCain is using Governor Palin for political gain. Wow...then what does that say about Obama? I'm sorry I didn't chose you, Senator Clinton, but could you please go out and save my behind now? I understand that Hillary has to do what she has to do in order to continue her political ambitions. I don't blame her, but wouldn't it be great to see her tell him to go (sorry trying to think of a polite word) himself. In addition to Clinton, he will be reving up his involvement with Governor Napolitano of Arizona and Governor Sebelius of Kansas.
He has now learned the answer to the question I have been asking of him.....yes Senator Obama you do need women to win this election. Does anyone want to take bets on when he FINALLY offers to pay off Hillary's debt now that he desperately needs her?
