There is no way on God's green(ish) earth that I'd vote for Sarah Palin. Partly because what little I know of her politics (conservative, gun-totin', pro-life, anti-gay beauty queen) is completely contrary to my beliefs, but mainly because a vote for McCain (also known as Bush Light) is a vote for 4 more years of the Bush policies of failure.
That said, I now say that I don't give a rats ass if she has a pregnant teenage daughter, regardless of whether the father were sticking with her or disappeared into the Alaskan wilds. Unless she were forcing her daughter to have an abortion, this has absolutlely no bearing on her ability to be Vice-President. You can be the best parent in the world and your teenage daughter might still end up pregnant, hormones do not happen only to the "ill-bred". So, this is my official plea that we hear no more on the subject. Let the news outlets drop it, let the Obama campaign rise above it and not make it an issue, because it isn't. We, as a nation, spend too much energy delving into the personal lives of our celebrities, and that's how we ended up with such pathetic leaders. Move past it and concentrate on the real issues; energy problems, federal deficit and federal debt, ending the war and keeping us out of new ones, restoring the American image in the rest of the world and restoring our economy. I don't know the answers to these problems, but we'll never figure them out if we worry instead about whose daughter is doing what.
