McCain, Palin and ANWR drilling

Just this past week, we've learned that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will run alongside Senator John McCain in hopes of winning the respective Vice President and President roles.Until recently, McCain has kept a fairly "hands off" stance in terms of opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) to oil drilling.

His opposition is in direct contrast to Palin's view. She whole-heartedly supports opening the area for drilling. Just recently, the House Republican leaders held a press conference to promote the party's American Energy Act. While McCain is supportive of the act in general, he still takes issue with parts. Is it the part that calls for more drilling in coastal ocean areas and the Arctic?

Do you believe this will be a major point of contention within the GOP? Will Palin change his mind?
