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.
