    in your diary, but John McCain choosing Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008 has to be one of the worst political mistakes ever by a presidential candidate. I really think, even with everything else that happened and everything else going against McCain and the Republicans in the 2008 election, McCain choosing Palin as his running mate was the main reason that he lost. If he would have went with a safe pick like Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani, I really think McCain might have won. I said so back then and I still think so.
