Sarah Palin Daughter Gets Knocked Up At 17

Sarah Palin announced Monday that here 17 year old daughter,Bristol Palin, is 5 months pregnant. Reports say that they plan on keeping the child and encourages Bristol to wed the father.

John McCain on the issue:
"[The Palins] "are being supportive of her and the man she will marry... This is a young woman. She's 17 years old. This is the governor's daughter and it is their issue." -trailblazersblog.DMN

Barrack Obama on the issue:

"Let me be as clear as possible," Obama said. "I think people's families are off-limits, and people's children are especially off-limits. This shouldn't be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin's performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president."

Obama said reporters should "back off these kinds of stories" and noted that he was born to an 18-year-old mother.

"How a family deals with issues and teenage children, that shouldn't be the topic of our politics, and I hope that anybody who is supporting me understands that's off-limits."-CNN

I believe the candidates are making the right choice by keeping out of this personal matter. There's no need into turning this issue into a celebrity show like Britney Spears little sister,Jamie Lynn Spears. I also think the media will keep their distance from this issue as well seeing that there's more to be had directly from either candidates.
