With Palin becoming less and less visible (and considerably less relevant) it seems to me that McCain was planning to replace her all along. I suggested this to my wife, and she thought that McCain couldn't replace her, but that Palin could bow out for any one of a number of "personal" reasons and then be replaced. A subtle semantic difference, but real nonetheless.
So, sometime next month, in a stroke of maverick boldness, Palin will step down and be replaced. What do you think?
Will Palin bow out and McCain replace her before the election?
