And if John McCain also knew about the pregnant daughter in advance of the vice presidential selection, as an older, wiser player on the national stage, as well as a parent himself, if he had an ounce of compassion he never would have asked Governor Palin to join him on the ticket.
Palin and McCain are not neophytes. They know what can happen if the press gets so much as a whiff of scandal. I can't believe they didn't see this coming. And if they didn't, NO ONE working on the campaign thought this might present a problem and spoke up?
It's hard enough to be a seventeen year old, without being pregnant and in the national spotlight. If Governor Palin would hang her own child out to dry, and John McCain would knowingly let her, they are not the people I want in the White House.
