Is It Time To Reach Around The Aisle?

Can a Democrat date a Republican?

There are plenty of articles out there regarding this topic; I researched through a lot of them and pulled a few of the more colorful points, quotes, and comments:

“Opposites may attract, but similarities endure”

“Would a Dem and a Rep Make It Work, not this one!”

“Republicans Are People, Too.”

“Look at Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria. It works for them.”

“Things are going wonderfully, until your date mentions the unthinkable. No, he’s not straight; he’s a… Republican.”

 “Respect your date (even if he/she is wrong!)”

JON STEWART ON SARAH PALIN

UH-OH, SARAH PALIN HAS EVEN MORE ‘SPLAININ TO DO

Oh boy, this could sink McCain/Palin after all!

From CBS News: What may prove to be the single most damaging angle to Sarah Palin’s role on the Republican Party ticket? There are quite a few contenders (ethics scandal, earmarks, inexperience, outside-the-mainstream views), but following up on Hilzoy’s item from last night, Palin’s association with the Alaska Independence Party might be the most politically detrimental.

It’s practically impossible to make a “Country First” argument when your running mate is affiliated with a political party that puts country second.

Officials of the Alaskan Independence Party say that Palin was once so independent, she was once a member of their party, which since the 1970s has been pushing for a legal vote for Alaskans to decide whether or not residents of the 49th state can secede from the United States.And while McCain’s motto — as seen in a new TV ad — is “Country First,” the AIP’s motto is the exact opposite — “Alaska First — Alaska Always.”

Lynette Clark, the chairman of the AIP, tells ABC News that Palin and her husband Todd were members in 1994, even attending the 1994 statewide convention in Wasilla. Clark was AIP secretary at the time.

“We are a state’s rights party,” Clark — a self-employed goldminer — tells ABC News. The AIP has “a plank that challenges the legality of the Alaskan statehood vote as illegal and in violation of United Nations charter and international law.”

For all the talk about Barack and Michelle Obama’s patriotism, John McCain’s running mate was a member of a political party that liked the idea of seceding from the United States altogether. It’s the kind of idea that would have been more common in the 1850s.

Advocating secession is, practically by definition, un-American. How does the right go after Obama’s patriotism while supporting a ticket with a candidate who joined a secessionist party?

We are, after all, talking about a party founded by a man who said, “I’m an Alaskan, not an American. I’ve got no use for America or her damned institutions.” The same man, AIP founder Joe Vogler, also said, “[T]he fires of Hell are glaciers compared to my hate for the American government.”

How is this any better than Jeremiah Wright? Why would Sarah Palin voluntarily join this man’s political party?

Complicating matters, Marc Ambinder has a video of a AIP leader explaining that party members “must ‘infiltrate’ — his words — the other two parties and push for the cause of Alaskan independence.”

I suspect McCain and his aides didn’t know about any of this. Indeed, they couldn’t have — they didn’t vet her. But now that this revelation has come to light, what’s the defense?

MCCAIN CHOOSES A YOUNG-ISH WOMAN AS HIS RUNNING MATE

I’m curious to know how John McCain will justify how he could choose someone with so little political experience when much of his campaign has been about Obama not having enough experience. Now he has a running mate with even less experience, even if I personally think she seems like a good (and very wise) choice. We’ll see how it plays out!
Sen. John McCain has picked Alaska Gov. Sarah as his running mate, a senior McCain campaign official told CNN on Friday.

Palin, 44, who’s in her first term as governor, is a pioneering figure in Alaska, the first woman and the youngest person to hold the state’s top political job.

She catapulted to the post with a strong reputation as a political outsider, forged during her stint in local politics. She was mayor and a council member of the small town of Wasila and was chairman of the state Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates Alaska’s oil and gas resources, in 2003 and 2004.

The conservative Palin defeated two so-called political insiders to win the governor’s job — incumbent Gov. Frank Murkowski in the GOP primary and former two-term Democratic Gov. Tony Knowles in the 2006 general election.

Palin made her name in part by backing tough ethical standards for politicians. During the first legislative session after her election, her administration passed a state ethics law overhaul.

Palin’s term has not been without controversy. A legislative investigation is looking into allegations that Palin fired Alaska’s public safety commissioner because he refused to fire the governor’s former brother-in-law, a state trooper.

Palin acknowledged that a call was made by a member of her staff to a trooper in which the staffer suggested he was speaking for the governor.

Palin has acknowledged that the call could be interpreted as pressure to fire state trooper Mike Wooten, who was locked in a child-custody battle with Palin’s sister.

“I am truly disappointed and disturbed to learn that a member of this administration contacted the Department of Public Safety regarding Trooper Wooten,” Governor Palin said. “At no time did I authorize any member of my staff to do so.”

Palin suspended the staffer who made the call and the investigation is continuing.

Palin has been focused on energy and natural resource policy during her short stint in office, and is known for her support of drilling in the Alaska National Wildlife Refuge, a position opposed by McCain but supported by many grass-roots Republicans.

Her biography on the state governor’s Web site says one of the two major pieces of legislation passed during her first legislative session was a competitive process to construct a gas pipeline.

Palin started Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office — an oversight and maintenance agency for the state’s oil and gas equipment, facilities and infrastructure. She created the Climate Change Subcabinet that would forge a climate change strategy, according to the biography.

At present, Palin chairs the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate panel “that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment,” the biography says.

She has been named chair of the National Governors Association’s Natural Resources Committee. That panel is focused on legislation to make sure that federal policies take state priorities into account in agriculture, energy, environmental protection and natural resource management.

She is a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association and takes part in two of Alaska’s popular pastimes — fishing and hunting.

The governor’s biography says Palin’s other priorities have been “education and workforce development, public health and safety, and transportation and infrastructure development.”

The biography touts other achievements during her time as governor — the investment of $5 billion in state savings, overhauling educational funding, and implementing a program to help low-income elderly Alaskans.

Born in Idaho, she is a longtime Alaskan and a Protestant. Her biography says she arrived in Alaska in 1964, “when her parents came to teach school in Skagway.”

She graduated from Wasila High School in 1982 and received a bachelor of science degree in communications-journalism from the University of Idaho in 1987.

Her husband is Todd Palin, who is a lifelong resident of the state and an oil production operator on Alaska’s North Slope. They have five children, including a son who enlisted in the Army last year.

Congressional Quarterly notes Palin’s other past occupations, including commercial fishing company owner; outdoor recreational equipment company owner; and sports reporter.

Palin also made an unsuccessful run for lieutenant governor in 2002, Congressional Quarterly said.
