Well ladies and gentleman, the US now has its second-ever female VP candidate — Sarah Palin. Here are some crucial facts you should know about the number two on the GOP ticket. She's the 44-year-old governor of Alaska, who up until two years ago served as mayor of Wasilla, an Alaskan city of 5,400 people.
Palin is pro-life, and a lifetime member of the NRA. She enjoys sky-high approval ratings and came onto the national scene as a reformer. Palin has five children, including a newborn who has Down syndrome, and a son ready to deploy to Iraq.
Do you think Sarah Palin will give John McCain, who turned 72 today, the White House as his belated birthday present?
