Love ’em or hate ’em, there’s no denying – gosh darn in – the folksy charm of Gov. Sarah

Palin and her husband, Todd. The McCain campaign has dispatched both to Maine’s 2nd

Congressional District in hopes of winning over enough voters here to land Sen. McCain

one of the state’s four electoral votes. Will it work? What do Maine and Alaska have in

common? What values to Mainers and the Palins share? Was it a wise political move?
