Pick a person who faced every challenge by taking the higher, not because it was easy, but because it was the right thing to do.
The beauty of Sarah Palin has nothing to do with her being physically attractive. The beauty in choosing Palin lies in the reaction of the American electorate, and the political establishments.

While his feat was truly historic, it was his character and personality that made him so special. Everyone wanted him to win, and win he did. He won big, won close, won as a part of a team, won individually, and won with class.
