As comedian Jay Leno said on Monday night, Christine O'Donnell has all the qualities of a "trophy candidate." Leno noted that Sarah Palin should watch out because O'Donnell is "younger, hotter, and crazier!"
Remember when Sarah Palin burst on the scene as Sen. John McCain's running mate in August 2008?
Questions abounded as to why McCain picked the Mama Grizzly - was it race, sex, age, tenacity? The Washington Post surmised Palin was picked to help McCain "reinforce his maverick label?" And New York Sen. Chuck Schumer called Palin's vice presidential candidacy a "hail mary pass" in August 2008.
