    This election is more about which party can get their base out to vote, apathetic voters almost do as much harm as the ones that just vote based on a catchy slogan or because they are cool and hip....

    If your litmus test is whether or not the candidate is pro life or pro choice, then none of the R candidates fit that criteria
    I'm with Franco on this one. 2008 was the first time since I have been voting that I didn't vote Republican for Pres (went Libertarian) and Palin was the reason. I wanted to cry when she was chosen as the VP. I would have been McCain all the way if he hadn't just folded to the nearly hysterical demands of the uber right.

    AS to the pro-choice question, I said it wasn't deal breaker as the most important issue to me this time is putting pretty much anybody else but Obama into the whitehouse, Hell, I might even have voted for Palin herself for pres had she been the only alternative this time.

    Guess what ...Palin isnt on the ballot this time...she isnt even getting a spot talking at the convention....she may be a media darling and some on here may swoon at the very mention of her....but the R party realized that she is a lightning rod, she cast her support behind Newt, and that didnt work....but notice how she is silent when it come to backing the nominee when it comes to beating BHO...maybe she isnt a R party woman that she claimed to be, but more about promoting herself..

    and FTR I WAS a SP fan, until I closed my eyes ,got past her looks and realized she had no substance...

    Sambo, you better make an appointment with the eye doctor.....if nothing else Sarah Palin IS a good looking woman, with or without the Tina Fey impersonation...

    of course maybe your tastes are more along the lines of Hillary, Janet Reno, Nancy Pelosi, or DW Schultz....

    I also think you are very WRONG about women not voting Republican....pro choice women are going to vote D...pro life women will vote R.....Nothing a candidate can say or do is going to change their minds in either direction if THAT ISSUE is their tipping point....trying to get them to change their mind on the subject is a lesson in futility....accept it for what it is...I do

    As a male I find it almost hilarious and somewhat sad that males try and tell a woman how she feels....as much as I am pro life, I am not going to tell a woman that she can or cant do what she feels she must or must not do, because its a no win situation...
    Like others, we have more important things to be concerned with than the Abortion issue. I agree that the Economy is the most important issue. However, with many women who don't spend as much time evaluating the issues and more time voting thier emotions, there is no denying that the GOP is on the wrong side of the abortion issue for the vast majority of them.

    After 8 years of Bush and Palin as the VP candidate last election, the GOP has a lot to overcome if they are to take the White House. It is THE major reason we now have Obama!

    Perhaps she realizes that she can help most by having a low profile this time around.

    If you support Obama Kiss medicare goodbye. Romney will reform it , we will still have it but under Obama it is going away. This has being reported for a long time that they are going broke now its time to do something about it.

    We can only hope...she has alienated as many female voters as those that favored her...but there is talk that she like Ron Paul will have alternative speaking engagements away from the convention....
