Watch Palin discuss her thoughts on being VP.
(CNN) - Would Gov. Sarah Palin join the Republican ticket if asked? The Alaska governor is among the popular names being tossed out there as a possible vice presidential running mate.
In many ways Palin is considered a good match for Sen. John McCain: young, conservative, a reformer who took on and beat Alaska's old guard Republican machine, and hugely popular.
On the other hand, Alaska may be geographically large, but in the presidential race it’s the electoral map that counts, and Alaska only has three electoral votes.
CNN Correspondent Joe Johns put the question to the governor in a recent interview.

Popular? Maybe, but qualified? No. If McCain wants a woman, there are far better ones available. Palin would be a no-go. We're all already worried about McCain's age and health, so the big question is: Would Palin be able to step in to the presidency on Day 1 (should McCain drive through the Pearly Gates)? Absolutely not. This would be a disaster. Forget it.
Pay Attention: this is the GOP's answer to try to secure Clinton's supporters. They WILL have to have a woman or minority on their ticket just to compete. Condi Rice said she is open to being the VP, and we all know how good she has done. No matter who they throw on the ticket, it will be voter pandering.
In the end, the issues (I hope) will be the deciding factor. If that is the case, change is coming! If not, say hello to $10.00 a gallon of gas, another war (maybe two), and say goodbye to Roe v. Wade.
Another rich spoiled brat – yep a good running mate. At least she seems tough enough to deal with the "Ice Queen" Cindy!
But, one has to think, can she relate to such an old guy like McGeezer?
please Hillary don.t help Obama
John McCain is against pork barrel spending.... except when it comes to OUR taxes funding his campaign!!!!
Is this a fiscal conservative?
What about HIS family values????
Republicans UNITE and send this traitor and Joe L out on the street!
Put her on the ticket, McCain-She's gorgeous!
Why sign on with a LOSER ? McCan't can't win.
This morning, Romney faithfully repeated that charge. When I pointed out that Obama reached across party lines to work with Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Indiana, on a non-proliferation measure, and with Sen. Gordon Smith, R-Oregon, on increasing gas mileage requirements, Romney shot back, saying that “Actually, on both cases, you’re talking about two liberal positions, non-proliferation as well as the gasoline mileage."
There you have it from Romney himself..... gasoline mileage is a LIBERAL issue......... I guess conservatives don't care about high gas prices!
OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGNING TOGETHER WILL WIN THE NOVEMBER ELECTION FOR OBAMA.
THEY DO NOT NEED BILL CLINTON ON THE SAME STAGE DURING THEIR CAMPAIGN SPEECHES AND APPEARANCES.
OBAMA IS BEING POLITE TO BILL, BUT HE REALLY DOES NOT NEED BILL CLINTON CAMPAIGNING FOR HIM.
OBAMA WILL WIN WITH HILLARY BACKING HIM AND CAMPAIGNING
McCain can promise to fill his entire cabanet with women, but it won't make a difference. McCain oppose everything women stand for. Why would any woman vote for him.
McCain must get a woman on the ticket, or he's through. This lady is super-sexy, and would even pull in a lot of the male vote.
I say go for it, McCain!
Just what we need !!
A mother of 5 trying to take over when McWarmonger kicks the bucket.
Talk about experience she has NONE!
Adding a VP to the ticket with the intention of having them bring their home state or region to your side rarely works, witness VP Al Gore in 92 and 96. If the VP candidate has wide appeal he or she can help the ticket somewhat, but it does NOT matter what state they call home.
At least she's not used to taking every weekend off to visit one of her 8 McMillionaire McMansions.
Might get more from her than McWarmonger.
He he he he he
Bet she's against drug use too – not like Cindy McShame.
McCain's VP selection is particularly important because he will not likely live for 8 more years, though we cannot know of course. I hope he does not choose just another cookie cutter conservative who says all the right things and doesn't mean any of them, like Governor Whats-her-name or Mitt Romney.
Huckabee would be his best choice. He is something of a populist. He would unite the evangelicals. He is a decent human being, unlike most of the Republican leadership.
Nah – she should remain above the loser mentality that McWarmonger brings to the table.
She has it made in Alaska – can do the max for ALL of her kids – why get aboard the Straight to Hell in a Handbasket Express?
Been there done that. Republicans need a female vp because that would polish their image of war mongers
Who's McCain again?
The guy who is only relevant when he is saying something negative about the American darling Obama?
While she may not have much experience, GW Bush had his dad GHW Bush, VP Cheney was former congressman and secdef and Rumsfeld was a former congressman. All in all, imense experience does not necessarily translate into good judgement and honesty.
I was going to vote for Bob Barr, but I'll vote for McCain in a heart beat if Palin is his VP.
mcsame thinks that if they have a women as a vp, the hillary supporters going to vote for mcsame. dream on mcsame it's not gonng to happen.
Sarah Palin is a great choice,
probably for 2012 and beyond?
Right Now John Kasich is a better choice.
Ohio and Pennsylvania,
it may come down to that?
