Why So Long?

John McCain is nominating Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, the first woman to be on a national GOP ticket and only the second one on a major party ticket in US history.

Why did it take so long?

I ask that as more of a rhetorical question than anything, but it came to mind when I considered that in Great Britain one of the traditional major parties has had at one time or another as prime minister a bachelor, a divorcee, and a woman as Prime Minister, while the other party has had only married white guys.

The catch?  It is the Tories who have picked outside the mold…not Labor.
