Yes, she is not being judged as a woman! She's being judged because she is not qualified politically or has the character for the job, and that is what is important.

Quote from the article: "All the talk about Palin's place on the ticket doesn't center on whether a woman can do the job. It's about her qualifications." Apparently McCain thought by just putting her, a woman, on the ticket, he could garner the vote of women who would look no further at her qualifications. He probably thought the same about Christian voters. Well, guess what Senator, they ARE looking beyond her gender and closer at her qualifications, and Palin is coming up short.

Sara is a smart woman. she has more Executive experience than Barak Obama and she will be the next VP. This article says about her 17 year old daughters pregnancy.Barak's mother conceived him when she was 17. John Mccain is a hero. He will be the next president of our great nation.
The problem is news media.All of them including FOX already made Barak the next president.

Thank you Sun-Sentinel for this positive and excellent article! Sarah Palin is highly qualified politically and has great character! She would make a great Vice President!

A power abuser, lier and a fraud. She's not even smarter than a 5th grader and makes Paula Abdul look like she gives perfect interviews. Doesn't anyone notice that Palin hasn't given one interview since the Katie Couric mess? Hmmmm.

Palin wants to take away everyone's rights then use her power to move on up like the Clampeds on Beverly Hillbillies.
oh right

Wow man...you live under a rock. A hero doesn't make you a leader. He's too old to run this country and take us into the future. His thinking is old fashioned and will hurt us all. Palin ran Alaska...population 2000? Give me a break. She's an idiot too. Watch her interviews by Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric. What a moron.

Bingo. Man or Woman...this person (Palin) is a wack job. Banning books in libraires? using your power to settle a personal score? She's dummer that George W. I'm sure she'd want to start up slavery again.

Who said Palin is a smart woman, no way, just real clever. She spent six years running from one college to another. Why? She says she has a degree in Journalist, really. Has anyone checked any of the colleges she attended? McCain is using her, for his purpose, just to win. She will lose her governor job in the next election. Character, none, anyone that runs a campaign being a radical or racist is not smart. Plain dumb to me. I know she can fool the Republican Conservatives. Not very quick thinkers.

Qualifications include over 73 accomplishments made by Palin as Mayor and Governor of Alaska.

Here's a few of Sarah Palin's Accomplishments- She has been the Governor of Alaska for two years and Mayor of Wasilla Alaska for ten years. She also served as President of Alaska Conference of Mayors and was also a City Council member (1992-1996).

House Bill 3001 for awarding a contract to TransCanada Alaska for developing and building a pipeline stretching for 1,715 miles from the Prudhoe Bay treatment plant to Alberta Canada.

Natives of Alaska have dreamed of a pipeline for more than 30 years. Sarah Palin in less than two years got the bill passed and the framework is now laid for them to move forward with the project.

Energy Package signed August 25, 2008.
House Bill 4001 and Senate bill 4002 were signed into law by Governor Palin on August 25, 2008. SB 4002 pays $1,200 to each resident who qualifies. The money for these payments comes from the state's natural resource revenue. This bill also suspends the state's tax on gasoline.

The previous Governor's private jet was sold by Palin to a businessman named Larry Reynolds, who paid $2.1 million for the jet, shy of the original $2.7 million purchase price. Sarah Palin felt this jet was a total waste of taxpayers money and refused to step foot in it.

What has O'bama accomplished as significant legislation while in office??? Stop wasteful spending and let's get America back on track!

She abused her power while being the governor of Alaska; she believes the earth is less than 7000 years old; she denies the women the right to choose; her knowledge about world events is an embarassment, even as a hockey mom. She is a pathological liar!

Poor Howard, he believes all he hears, doesn't do any research.
From Wikipedia:
Palin attended several colleges and universities. In 1982, she enrolled at Hawaii Pacific College but left after her first semester. She transferred to North Idaho community college, where she spent two semesters as a general studies major. From there, she transferred to the University of Idaho for two semesters.[10][11] During this time Palin won the Miss Wasilla Pageant[12][13] then finished third in the 1984 Miss Alaska pageant,[14][15] at which she won a college scholarship and the "Miss Congeniality" award.[16] She then attended Matanuska-Susitna community college in Alaska for one term. The next year she returned to the University of Idaho where she spent three semesters completing her Bachelor of Science degree in communications-journalism, graduating in 1987.[10][11]

In 1988, she worked as a sports reporter for KTUU-TV and KTVA-TV in Anchorage, Alaska,[17] and for the Mat-Su Valley Frontiersman as a sports reporter.[18] She also helped in her husbandís commercial fishing family business.[19]

Uh oh - this isn't good for McCain. Fox News has become part of the big, bad "Liberal Media". And William F. Buckley's son has endorsed Obama. What's next - the Weekly Standard? Oh, the humanity!

Does being a marxist make you a leader? Does someone who thinks government can do better than citizens qualify him as presidential?

What exactly has Obama done with his life- besides complaining (or bravely voting "present")?

Palin lied about supporting the bridge to nowhere, Palin lied about asking for earmarks, and Palin lied about Troopergate. Notice a pattern?

Sarah Palin is a remarkable woman and I think she has more going for her than obama does and he is the presidential candidate. As a professional woman, she has my vote - obama most certainly does not.
