Right. But obama, who has even LESS experience than Palin is supremely qualified. Ok, whatever you say bots. You're credibility on this issue is in the toilet.

Are you unaware that 16 other governors have been president?
Of late, Bush, Clinton, Carter, Reagan....


OH YEAH....and some obscure president named Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Perhaps you're familiar with some of his accomplishments, but I know they're sorta not so famous......

The first and most important decision that a Presidential candidate makes is his/her choice of VP.

Before politics or what states can be won, the most important question MUST be can the VP take over the job of President. Do you want a one-term governor who was a mayor of 7000 to be President of the United States?

You consistently fail to address the issue or defend you candidate. Please provide us with a credible reason for your support. Why is the Governor "supremely qualified" to be Commander in Chief of the United States of America?

Why? Why do you believe Governor Palin is qualified to be Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?

She commanded the Alaska National Guard and Alaska Air National Guard.

Also, a governor's job is to lead.

IS Governor Sarah Palin ready to lead the United States should Senator McCain be unable to? Let the vetting begin......

The role of the Vice-President just hit front and Center.
If I had to choose between her and Bubba HO...it would be a no-brainer...she wins! Perhaps if you had selected a better candidate, she would NOT be my first choice, but you did not...this is a select from the above race, not a "what do you want" race.

That isn't true. She was a city council member since 1992, then was elected mayor, then elected as mayor again, before being elected governor.

She has more years of political experience than Obama, who apparently never considered running for mayor of Chicago or governor of Illinois.

Neither Biden nor Obama have a bit of Executive Experience. It's a whole different thing.

Gotta run now it's so awesome watching Chris Mathews' depression unfolding right on tv. And idiot Andrea Mitchell [who disparaged West Virginians as "hillbillies" ]... try and paint her badly.
