Pre-RNC: Palin - We Can Shatter the Glass Ceiling Once and For All

Governor Sarah Palin introduced herself to the voters today. When she accepted McCain's invitation to run for Vice President, she praised Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton for paving the way for women to break the glass ceiling. Picking up on Clinton's words from the DNC, she honored Clinton for leaving "18 million cracks in the highest hardest ceiling in America."

Women aren't finished yet, she said. "We can shatter that ceiling once and for all!"

She said her mission is clear - to "take our message of reform to every voter of every background in every political party, or no party at all."

I'm watching for the common ground between the Democrats and the Republicans during this election. Both parties seem to agree (finally) that women can lead in the highest posts of our government.
