After canceling most of its opening-day program because of Hurricane Gustav, the GOP returned to regular order...

By Anonymous Sen. John McCain has made a daring choice by selecting Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate. The selection can be fairly called shocking, as McCain reached out to a first-term governor with a resume thinner than that of his Democratic rival, Sen. Barack Obama. But make no mistake, there is much to recommend Palin. With this selection, McCain elevates the GOP ticket to the same history-making status as that of the Democrats. Come November, Americans will see...
