Sarah Palin has the kind of energy America needs in a vice president. In April, this energetic woman gave birth and returned to work in three days. What an impressive show of fitness.

By contrast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi bore five children and chose to hang around at home to raise them, which, in effect, dumped the breadwinner role on her poor husband. Where's the energy in that? In fact, Pelosi didn't even bother to run for political office until 1987, when her youngest child was a high school senior.

Even worse, I suspect that during the whole time Pelosi was raising her kids, she was indoctrinating them with her liberal Democrat values rather than family values.
