Even members of John McCain's party have questioned his selection of Gov. Sarah Palin has his vice presidential candidate, but Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt is not one of them. Appearing today on Face the Nation, Blunt just said, "She is a perfect candidate for Missouri. I could take Sarah Palin to my hometown of Strafford or any community in this state and she would immediately connect with people."
Disagreeing with the polls, Blunt said, "McCain appears to be in the lead today and that lead has been growing in the past several days."
Moving back to Sarah Palin, Blunt said Missourians see through Obama and are "embracing Sarah Palin's candidacy."
