Palin revealed her lack of foreign travel in the answer above. Here's Obama:<quoted text>
Seriously tho, one thing that Palin & Obama had in common was the lack of international experience.
"As a child, Obama lived four years in Jakarta, Indonesia. As a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Obama has visited many spots around the world vital to U.S. interests including Russia, Kuwait, Iraq, and Israel among others. His most high profile trip was an August 2006 visit to Africa where he brought his family to his father's birthplace in Kenya."
I don't think it's even close. Obama was way more familiar with the larger world than Sarah Palin. Advantage Obama.
That difference was only the heartbeat of an old man. If McCain was suddenly gone, you've got President Palin, by golly! It was a terrible miscalculation by John McCain, who could have been a good President.<quoted text>A difference being that Obama was running for the Big Chair & Palin for the 2nd Chair...
And he is also a man who has suffered torture in the defense of our country. I think McCain is not always right, but I never doubt his patriotism.<quoted text>(...a multi-term senator that had international experience & came from a family that had to of had additional exposure to international issues.
