    As I saw Palin’s inaugural speech as VP candidate, and saw her very young child being held being her, I couldn’t help wondering how someone could be a devoted mother while raising children. Having learned that her 17 year old daughter is pregnant, I am trying to understand what that says about Palin as a mother. What is the “family values” crowd thinking about the implications of her daughter engaging in pre-marital sex (at a very young age) and failing to use proper contraception. Surely, this is not a positive way to start a family… Palin might make a great VP candidate, and this won’t impact my thiking about her professional credentials, but for the consevatives who seemed to attack Democrats for their personal/family life as an indication of how they would perform professionally, I am wondering how much this is going to hurt her…
