Sarah Palin—whom Schmidt helped persuade McCain to pick as his running mate—is playing her Schmidt-sanctioned pit-bull role with great success.

It is A.
the correct pronoun is 'whom' why ? okay lets put it this way Schmidt helped her (her = objective case) got it?
So whom it is and this put B,C and E out.
Between A and D correct verb tense is 'helped'
So A it is.

I thought you use who when you are talking about the subject, which is sarah palin in this case and whom when you are talking about the object.

bigtreez, as far as my knowledge goes the to choose correctly among the forms of who, re-phrase the sentence so you choose between he and him. If you want him, write 'whom'; if you want he, write 'who'.

Who/Whom wrote the letter?
He wrote the letter. Therefore, who is correct.

Whom shall we ask to the party? (Shall we ask him to the party?)

now lets see the given sentence.
Sarah Palin- Schmidt helped her pursuade...
Sarah Palin- whom Schmidt helped
I dont think this sentence can use subjectinve pronoun 'she' in anyway.

Makes sense?
but bigtreez, to be honest as i am reading it again n agian I me too is getting confuse ...damn you lol

Agree with rishi. We need whom here. Will go with (A).
