The Old Fart has all the experience
So what he really needed in his VP choice was the likelyhood that he/she could be reasonably expected to live out the first term. So he went for 44 year old Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska. Like the Old Fart she is supposed to be a maverick. Like former Governor Spitzer of New York, she is supposed to be a reformer. And like the aforementioned Spitzer, she began her term as Gov. by using her office to get her former brother in law, a state trooper, fired during a custody battle with sister. Which, naturally, she compounds by firing Alaska's public safety commissioner because he would not fire the trooper, Mike Wooten. While this is not yet equal to the Keating 5, it will do nicely for a VP. And this being Alaska, there is probably a Veco connection yet to be discovered.
