I’ve found nice blog,more correctly,blogger who started campaign in 2007 to promote Sarah Palin as a VP. And dreams come true:)))
“In all probability, John McCain is going to be the next President. For him to choose Sarah as his running mate would be both bold and wise.
Sarah Palin is an anomaly in American politics. It’s not because she’s a woman, not because of her blue-collar background, and not because of her ability to juggle the titles of “governor” and “committed mother of five”. Forget about all of that stuff for a moment; it’s interesting, but if Barack Obama has taught us anything, it’s that a compelling biography is not a qualification for leadership.

If there were any doubt that the rules of the international game have changed for good, the events of the past few days should have dispelled it. On Monday, President Bush demanded that Russia’s leaders reject their parliament’s appeal to recognise the independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Within 24 hours, Bush had his response: President Medvedev announced Russia’s recognition of the two contested Georgian enclaves.
The NKR Foreign Minister yesterday made a statement welcoming the recognition of the independence of South Osetia and Abkhazia.
