>The pregnancy of a vice presidential candidates’ unmarried, teenage daughter. Is this a huge story?


No parent is infallible; teens make choices.

Though I applaud the decision to carry the baby rather than abort; I wonder why the governor didn’t announce the pregnancy before others did? It was going to be more-than-obvious soon.

I do not know. Perhaps “advisors” advised. Perhaps guilt, false or genuine. Maybe a drop of shame?

But does it determine whether or not she would make a good vice-president?

Not at all.

Of more importance is the differences evidenced by the governors supporters and detractors.

Of paramount importance is that those who support the governor not treat this pregnancy any different than they would were it the daughter of a politician they don’t support.
