Bristol Palin is defending her mother as a good choice for vice president in 2008, as Mitt Romney steps up his search for a running mate.
The choice of Sarah Palin, at the time a little-known governor of Alaska in her first term, as John McCain’s vice presidential pick four years ago has been a hot topic of discussion as Romney searches in earnest for his No. 2.
In a new post today on Palin’s blog, the oldest daughter of the losing-GOP vice presidential nominee writes that it’s “ridiculous” to say Romney should avoid McCain’s “mistake,” saying there is “no evidence to back up this conventional wisdom.”
“Mom answered the call to serve her country, energized the base, and inspired millions. Plus, she did it with good humor and grace. I don’t know what else she could’ve reasonably be expected to do,” Bristol Palin, writes.
