So has McCain chosen the former Alaskan beauty queen?

    The money pours onto to the woman who is now Governor

We don’t know anything yet for certain but in the past hour all the money has been going on to Sarah Palin – the woman described by her supporters as “America’s Margaret Thatcher” and “The Iron Lady” – as the Republican party V-P nominee. The above is from her supporter’s website.

The 44 year old who was elected Alaska’s governor only two years ago certainly seems an amazing choice – if that is indeed what has happened.

Wikipedia describes her background like this: A mother of five..“She hunts, eats moose burgers, ice fishes, rides snowmobiles, and owns a float plane. Palin holds a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association. She admits that she used marijuana when it was legal in Alaska, but says that she did not like it.”

If it has gone to Palin it will be a great result for me. I became convinced that McCain would choose a woman from the moment Obama chose a man. I’ve bet on all the women possibles and will make enough on Palin at an average of 17/1 to more than cover all my other bets in both parties’ nominee market and still be about £650 in profit.

The news is due at about 5pm UK time.
