After seeing the spectacular Democratic convention in Denver in the past few days, I can’t help but think that the Republicans will have to do something surprising and drastic to regain the headlines and momentum. This is like a chess game.

I previously predicted that Senator McCain would pick former Governor Mitt Romney. Even though this was my pick, this would open up holes for the other side to attack and this may not be wise.

Therefore, I think that it would be much better if Senator McCain picks a woman as his running mate. Some big names include Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice and Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas.

However, if Senator McCain picks a woman, it could be Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. She would be the logical pick as she is far away from the D.C. usual politics, she’s a conservative, she is young, and she is highly popular. She would fill the weaknesses of Senator McCain. She is my pick using logical chess-like strategy.

Any of these women would give Senator McCain a chance to capture a good deal of the women’s votes.

What do you think? What is your prediction?
