Thoughts on the media reaction to Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate

Did the media spend so much time wondering if Obama could still talk about "change" after he selected Biden (someone who has been in Washington for more than 30 years) as they have been audibly wondering if McCain can still talk about experience because Palin isn't the most experienced (at least in terms of government experience) pick?

Was the lack of foreign policy experience that noteworthy when John Edwards was selected as John Kerry's running mate in 2004?

What possible GOP running mates have foreign policy experience? Tom Ridge? Ewhh...

What would have the reaction been if McCain picked a white male?

On the news of Bristol Palin's pregnancy, I hope evangelicals will have the same reaction if in the future a Democratic candidate's teenage daughter becomes pregnant.
