CNN is now reporting that Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be John McCain's running mate.
Palin, 44, who has been governor for only two years, appears to have little track record with video games - or much of anything else.
She was a city council person in Wasilla, Alaska from 1992-1996 and was later mayor of that town. She failed in an attempt to become Alaska's Lt. Gov. in 2002, and won the top seat in 2006.
Palin has two sons and three daughters. Her oldest son, age 18, is scheduled to be deployed to Iraq later this yer.
