Conservative Skeptics on Palin

National Review Editor and TIME contributor Ramesh Ponnuru expresses his disapproval of McCain’s “reckless choice.”

Questions the pick for her “inexperience,” “tokenism,” and no known compatibility with McCain or debating ability.

“I am not even sure that the pick will have quite the galvanizing effect on conservatives that it seems to be having now as it sinks in. The concerns I’ve mentioned here—about her readiness and her credentials—are the kind of thing that many conservative voters take seriously.”
