ECU Students React To McCain Pick

Some might call John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin to be his running mate unexpected -- but it definitely has people talking.

Students in an afternoon East Carolina University political science class had varying opinions when we spoke to them. Some of them said the pick of the 44-year-old governor might bring disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters over to the Republican ticket. Some democratic voters also agreed that the pick was risky, but a good choice. Others expressed concern over experience.

Palin was elected in Alaska in 2006 when she unseated the then Democratic incumbent. She's the first female GOP nominee for vice president.

The Republican National Convention is scheduled to start on Monday.
