Doing my part for Global Warming

September 9, 2008

Excellent piece on the selection process for McCain’s VP candidate.  There are a number of things to like about how it was handled if they are accurate.  I particularly appreciated the desire to keep the process quiet in order to keep from setting false expectations among those considered.  McCain has many faults, but if anything is going to carry him to victory in this race it will be his humanity.
