People are calling Barack Obama's acceptance speech last night a political masterpiece, with one commentator likening it to a symphony...

Sometimes, there is so much hype and so much anticipation, that one can't help but disappoint. Unless, of course, your name is Barack Obama. Sure, the campaigns will get bogged back down in minutiae and silly media creations, but for one night at least we saw how great Barack Obama really can be.

NEWSFLASH: Sources are reporting that a private plane flew into Ohio, sight of today's McCain VP roll-out, late last night from Alaska, home to Alaska Governor and VP hopeful Sarah Palin. Who you ask? More to follow....

Campaign: McCain Chooses Alaska Governor For VP

Republican Sen. John McCain is set to announce Friday that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be his vice presidential running mate, a move that brings youth and a staunch anti-abortion advocate to the GOP ticket, senior campaign officials said.

Palin, 44, was elected Alaska's first woman governor in 2006. She has extensive influence in Alaska politics, where she served as mayor of Wasilla, ethics commissioner on the state's Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.

Palin has steadfastly opposed abortion and last year gave birth to her fifth child, who she knew would have Down syndrome.
