Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — New Mom and VP-Stakes Winner?

Alaska's Republican governor, Sarah Palin, is the hottest ticket in town. After giving birth to her fifth child this weekend (a son named Trig) a glamorous stint in Vogue earlier this year, and sky-high approval ratings, could this new mom be tapped to be the yin to McCain's yang come November?

As the first female governor of Alaska, and the second governor to become a mom in office, some are clamoring for Palin to make the ticket — even starting a website to "Draft Sarah Palin." Here's a little taste of her take on governing:

As mayor and CEO of the booming city of Wasilla, my team invited investment and encouraged business growth by eliminating small business inventory taxes, eliminated personal property taxes, reduced real property tax mill levies every year I was in office, reduced fees, and built the infrastructure our businesses needed to grow and prosper.

Older candidate McCain might just be the one smashing home the real "firsts" this fall — oldest candidate and a brand-new mom as his running mate? He's been rumored to be courting a woman, most think he needs a youthful presence, and Condoleezza has scooted out of the picture. . . . what are the odds?
