In 60 days she could be President: Do we know her?

I find it odd, even insulting, that the McCain crowd would pick for VP someone they scarcely knew merely to win votes. This seems to me to trivialize the whole process of choosing a President and Vice President -- and even to trivialize the role and responsibilities of the most powerful person in the world. They suppose that they will gain votes by doing this: what kind of people do they think will buy into this? People who seriously care about the Presidency? The USA? The world? What would American affairs have been like if all the leaders in American history were chosen so carelessly, so precipitously?
I wish I could feel better about this process.
