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.
