John McCain surprised almost everyone today when he named Sarah Palin his running mate. The youngest person ever elected Governor of Alaska, she the first woman in that office. Like McCain she is known as an iconoclast. Palin has served as governor for only two years, and was not among the names being floated by pundits as the most likely choices. She is a member of the NRA, opposes abortion, supports oil drilling in ANWAR. Dave Donaldson is Capitol correspondent for the Alaska Public Radio Network.
