As I indicated in my last post, I honestly cannot tell if Governor Palin's alleged issues (her daughter's pregnancy), and her involvement with a civil service dust-up back home -- were known about prior to her selection as McCain's Vice Presidential candidate. If there were indeed defects in the completeness of the background check, I imagine that they arose out of an attempt to preserve secrecy and options until it became clear what Obama was going to do.
Whatever. This is done, the cake's baked. Putting on my strategy hat, McCain just has to lean into it, say that Palin was his choice, and that her personal issues are advantages, and work them enough until they are. No place to go but forward.
Obama says that family is "off limits." Well, he would, wouldn't he?
