Progressive Revival

I guess I’m what you would call an old fashioned, Irish Catholic politician from Boston.  I’ve seen American politics at its best and (unfortunately) at its worst.  But I never gave up on it.  On Friday, I was amazed at the announcement and the sincere, down to earth comments by Governor Sarah Palin in being selected by Senator John McCain to be his running mate.  I don’t know how she’ll do on the campaign trail, but American politics is much better today for it.
