Let's be honest, whatever McCain's rationale was, he didn't select Palin because he agreed with her politics or because she had any great experience.

If Obama had picked Hillary, then the primary reason for McCain to pick Palin would not have existed: she is on the ticket to appeal not to the hardcore Hillary supporters, but rather to the women, many of whom are uncommitted, who will make up around 54% of voters, and who, like the 91% of blacks who support Obama without being racist, would like to see a name attached to a physical body they can feel identification with.
The fact that her stated, whether or not proven, policies have appealed to conservatives that were not previously engaged is a problem for Obama to deal with that would not have existed with a Hillary selection and a Lieberman counter.
