My soldier, on a walkabout in Baghdad

I think that all of my readers know that I think Sarah Palin was an inspired choice for the GOP VP nomination.  She and McCain have my vote.

That said, I have to put on my “devil’s advocate” hat, and speak as the mom of one of the troops (as is Gov. Palin herself). I have one concern.  If she should end up in the top spot, and have to assume Commander-in-Chief duties, will she be able to make the tough decision knowing that she may be putting her own son in harm’s way?

I want to believe that she can, but I have some reservations.  What do you think?
