He's white, he HAS a chance.

In all she has had a total of 123,000 people cast votes for her in ALL of her elections.

There's no accusation yet that many of these voters were dead, but then again it's not Chicago.

So you are saying that McCain has not had responsibilities. Got it.

This BS that only a Governor with Executive Experience can run the Presidency is absolutely nuts. Bush is living proof that Executive Experience is worth NOTHING.

Please tell me how your community organizer's experience qualifies him to be President? And exactly how that compares to being on the PTA?

I figure years in the Illinois Senate and years in the US Senate is a pretty good start. Politics at that level is blackbelt across the board, there are very few truly incompetent players. [though I can name a few on both sides of the aisle]

If you raise the qualifications of Palin based on "executive experience" at the expense of Obama or Biden, you equally diminish the qualifications of McCain, telling us, in no uncertain terms that he is not worthy of being a candidate for President.

I am sure Palin is a good person. In time she might even be good Presidential material [though I would not support her on her Pro Life stance]. However, she is still a babe in the woods at this juncture of her political career.

Is Obama that person, I don't know. He as vision that I have not seen in a long time. That is important. He DOES have more experience than Palin. To minimize that is to be disingenuous.

The difference is, McCain and Obama have been vetted by the voters of America for the past 18 months. At least 18 Million have voted for each of them as affirmation of that vetting. Biden has been in the game for decades and has been vetted since the 70s. Palin has not. This country does not have time for surprises or political tricks "just to win". We need folks who can hit the road running, Palin is going to be in class for way too long if the [R] sides wins. Al Qaeda and the folks that don't like us in the world enjoy seeing weakness and lack of preparation.

When you fill out your quarterly tax forms, remember that 20% is going to pay the INTEREST on the DEBT that the REPUBLICANS ran up on the nation's charge card.

When your son gets called up again, remember that the depleted forces are due to piss poor planning by a Republican Administration that picked on a country that had no terrorists within its borders that were a threat to the US.

When you have to nearly strip to get on an airplane for vacation remember that the Department of Homeland Security is run by an Administration built on Fear Uncertainty and Dread and that the extra costs of your ticket is due to their inability to intelligently secure the skies.

I have about 50 more, but I will stop for a few.
