Palin

Lots of commentary about what her selection says about John McCain, but what does this say about Sarah Palin? I'll bet that I'm far more informed than she is when it comes to domestic and foreign policy, and I'd really, really love to be Vice-President. But if, through some cosmic freak of fortune, I was asked to be someone's running mate, I would have to say, "Thanks, but no thanks. I just don't have the experience or qualifications, and and a job this important isn't meant to be an ego trip." But Palin didn't say that. Instead, she put her own personal ambitions above the good of the country. I think her answer, more than her lack of experience, shows just how unsuited she is to become Vice-President.

Wow I completely agree...

Yeah, as opposed to Obama's three years experience voting in the Senate, with no significant legislative accomplishments to speak of, the last two years of which he's mainly been running for President. Palin has spent two years as governor of the largest state in the union. That counts for nothing?

OBama has been planning this for years and beat out a very powerful political foe for the nomination. He has surrounded himself with competent leaders and has executed his plan very well.

Palin OTOH has done none of this.

She is like the pick up for a sand lot foot ball game, maybe outstanding, but likely a disappointment.

Phil, this post shows how unsuited you are to ever advise a presidential candidate on a vice presidential pick! JF
