The Odd Couples

Among these points, I find it interesting that:
These two statements are kind of weird, considering the pairing of candidates
  1. Biden originally supported the war (but to be fair he immediately opposed it), while Obama heavily criticized Hillary for voting for the war in the beginning.
  2. Palin supports drilling in the ANWR. Strange, because it's located in her home state, Alaska. You'd think that a former governor would want to preserve her own national wildlife refuge. The strangest thing is that McCain straight-up opposed drilling, specifically in the ANWR, which was at odds with the Bush administration at the time, way before McCain chose Palin as his running mate.
It's one thing to be at odds with your political opponents, but another to be at odds with your own running mate.
