Do you really like/admire/respect her, or is it just the fascination of her being a woman/mother?

Both. What I know of her politically I like, ie. domestic drilling, pro-life, states' rights, smaller government. I also like that we have a strong female politician who is also feminine and a mother. I like having her as a role model for my daughter. Of course, she's not the Virgin Mary, but it's nice to have someone we can relate to in the public eye. :) And she's cute, like the prime minister of Ukraine...

I am not one to say that all media accounts are correct, but judging from several sources I've read, taking into account her wedding date and her first son's date of birth, there appeared to be some unholy unions going on... unless her son was premature, but there is no mention of this that I can find.

Knowing what I know about you and your beliefs, I can't see how you would particularly want that as a role model for your daughter. Also, it could be because I do not have a "family", but I fail to see how being a mother makes one a viable political candidate over someone who is not.

Not trying to play devil's advocate, but you are one of the only people I am friends with that openly supports the GOP, and it intrigues me.
