Hillary Clinton (and Others) on Sarah Palin:

Senator Hillary Clinton made the following statement about John McCain's selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate:

“We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.

The Washington Post also has a roundup of comments on the pick from Newt Gingrich, Grover Norquist, John Podesta, and others. And Fred Barnes has a good profile in today's WSJ here.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey responds to criticisms of the Palin pick here.
