What more is there to say...she's country come to town, and not ready for prime time. A very dicey move on McCain's part and VERY questionable. Pack it in Sarah...yup, yup

could be that she is governor of a state that is somewhat involved in energy production. Prior to that, she served on a board that dealt with that industry. And experience is not the area you want to come to battle with, not when your standard bearer spent all of 140+ days in the Senate before deciding he was bored by it and would rather be president.

If you don't like her, don't vote for her. Simple.

A QUESTION FOR LIBERALS

IF, you are TRULY concerned about Sarah Palin's "lack of experience"
because she is only a ONE-TERM GOVERNOR,

does this mean you will be voting for McCain, who has way more experience
than ONE-TERM SENATOR Obama ???

If not, please explain your hypocrisy

I think it was a wise choice. Before the Saddleback forum, it was the lesser of 2 evils. After that, it was a no-brainer. Since Mrs. Palin came along, I'll vote with pleasure for that ticket...

Palin is a joke. A political science minor from a school in idaho?

Being editor of Harvard Review is a more prestigious role than Gov. of Alaska...

What a blatant attempt to pull one over on the half-witted american public. From the replies on this board, it appears to be working. How pathetic.

It's amazing how the republicans can be so hypocritical and not even blink an eye. They chastized Obama because he had only 4 yrs as a Senator. This woman had been governor for less than 2 yrs for a state with 600,000 and a mayor of a town of 9,000. If the Melanoma comes back, Palin could be our Commander and Chief. Do you want her answering the phone at 3AM???????
At least she'll be up (breastfeeding). ;)

I feel the same way. I am now actually looking forward to voting for McCain/Palin.

A stupid pick. Now the repubs can't use the no experience attack against Barack, the only hope they had in defeating him.

Palin has MORE experience that BO, as Governor, she operates a $9 billion budget and manages $13 billion in revenue and she runs a government that employs 25,000 people. BO's got 143 days in the senate before he announced his candidacy.

By you're logic, Lenny Sitnik has more experience than Palin. We should elect her...

But I thought we wanted CHANGE instead of the same old Washington insiders. You can't have it both ways.

An absolutely sterling pick. She's just what we need and it will become more apparent with each passing week.

And the country agrees, according to the latest polling--statistically tied and we haven't even had the convention yet.

I love my poor little misguided Asheville. But, have no fear, there's a common-sense movement coming soon to an election near you!

All the polls I saw showed Obama ahead.

The CNN poll you are refering to, was completed Sunday before all this came out about Mrs Palin todays polls released 9/2/08 show this:

The Gallup daily tracking poll puts Obama ahead by a 50 percent to 42 percent margin. The Rasmussen tracking poll, which gave McCain a one point lead going into the Dems' convention, puts Obama up by 51 to 45. The National Political Hotline, in a poll, puts the Illinois senator out front by 48 percent to 39 percent. A CBS News survey had a similar finding, with Obama at 48 percent and McCain at 40 percent.

Never thought I would see a lesser qualified VP after Quayle.

OK for everybody who wants to know WHY Obama is more qualified that the Republican VICE PRESIDENT--here it is.

Barack Obama contends that he is more experienced in executive matters than Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin because he has managed his presidential campaign for the past 18 months.

Speaking on a cable news channel Monday night, the Democratic presidential nominee said he is better prepared to handle a disaster like Hurricane Gustav because of his pursuit of the White House.

“Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We’ve got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years,” Obama said.

John McCain’s spokesman called the suggestion “laughable.”

“For Barack Obama to argue that he’s experienced enough to be president because he’s running for president is desperate circular logic and its laughable. It is a testament to Barack Obama’s inexperience and failing qualifications that he would stoop to passing off his candidacy as comparable to Governor Sarah Palin’s executive experience managing a budget of over $10 billion and more than 24,000 employees,” said spokesman Tucker Bounds.

Not sure it is too bright for a PRESIDENTIAL candidate to say he is more qualified that a VICE PRESIDENTIAL candidate AND end up being WRONG because he FORGOT she was GOVERNOR OF ALASKA.

I said "statistically tied." Look at the margins for error--and stand by for a good sized pop after Thursday.

I never thought I would see a lesser qualified Presidential candidate than Obama. That's the issue. We elect the #1 on the ticket and not the #2.
