A WBTV viewer wrote me after the 11pm news tonight asking:

“When you were reporting about McCain’s VP selection, you ended it by saying at 44, they say she is a risky pick. Was that mentioned because CBS is a Democratic-owned operation or was that you view?

Just curious… Stephen”

I wrote him back, citing four different national news organizations and political analysts who call Sarah Palin a “risky” choice for John McCain as his running mate.  Bold.  Brilliant.  Risky.  Surprising.  All these are words being used tonight after the Republican nominee for President chose the Governor of Alaska as his number two.  Campaign 2008 is getting more interesting all the time.  I love my job.
