Statement from Ellen R. Malcolm, President of EMILY's List on Senator McCain choosing Governor Palin
Washington, DC -- Ellen R. Malcolm, president of EMILY’s List, issued the following statement on Senator McCain’s selection of Governor Palin as his Vice Presidential nominee:
"How ironic that, on his 72nd birthday, McCain has raised the question of whether his running mate is prepared to be Commander in Chief and lead the country. Governor Palin and John McCain are a good match because they both want to overturn Roe V. Wade, they both want to continue the failed economic policies of the Bush administration and they both offer more of the same that has led this country down the wrong path. McCain clearly sees the power of women voters in this election but has just as clearly failed to support any of the issues that they care about. His choice for vice president only reinforces that failure"
