On the heels of the Democratic Convention, McCain has picked his running mate.Â A surprising choice to many: Sarah Palin, a first term governor.
Palin made her name in part by backing tough ethical standards for politicians. During the first legislative session after her election, her administration passed a state ethics law overhaul.
