Sarah Palin is an open slate to most voters. They have no idea who she is, where she stands, etc. That can be a benefit and disadvantage for the campaigns. The benefit for the McCain campaign is they can highlight her positives. The downside is that she can be defined as the news media scrambles to find out her track record, her history, etc. It appears that both campaigns are giving us a helping hand.
