As a former Hillary supporter I am amazed, disgusted, and sadly not surprised at the response to the selection of Sarah Palin. In a letter printed on Sept 1, a local resident is willing to vote for the Republican ticket because she was a former Hillary supporter and now there is a woman to consider. They are NOT apples for apples.

The only thing they share are xx chromosomes. Sarah Palin is one step away from the most powerful position in the world; perhaps one should consider her policies not her gender. There are SERIOUS issues to consider.

Ginger Schantz,
