Open Thread: Should AAUW Endorse Sarah Palin?September 03, 2008
Since we asked the same question about Hillary Clinton, we couldn’t help but ask the same about the first female Republican nominee for vice president of the United States. We realize that Clinton and Palin aren’t interchangeable, and frankly, if we were about to drop our 126-year tradition of being nonpartisan and endorse someone, we’d probably pick someone whose politics lined up a little more closely with our AAUW Public Policy Program.
So no, we’re not going to endorse her. But Sarah Palin is an interesting choice, and whichever party wins in November, someone is going to make history. It’s the most exciting election in a long time, and that should at least be good for voter turnout.
There’s a lot to say to say about her, and we weren’t sure where to start. So have at it. What do you think of Sarah Palin?
