Please keep in mind TM - McCains choice for VP IS A MIDDLE CLASS PERSON! She works to raise a family. Her husband, an oil worker, is a Teamster. She is not rich -

If I were a crappy corrupt politician in Washington, I would be VERY worried about Palin becoming VP.

IF she is the genuine article, she might have 16 years to clean up Washington AND by then, HER husband would be only about 60. After that, her son will be of age.

About twenty years ago if you said women were ONLY good for one thing, you would get slapped. Are were back to those times again where it is okay to say that?

SO whats wrong with Republicans doing the same?
You're right. The problem is McCain made Obama "experience" an issue. That's all he has been whining about the last month. So, I do have an issue with him for turning around and throwing this poor women in the lime light with the same or less amount of experience as Obama. I mean his health is decreasing already, so must likley if he wins, she will be the President.

One of my friends who happens to be Black is only voting for Obama because He's Black and wants to see a Black man in office. I think the same can go for women as well.

I don't think an experience issue is the case ever.

Look at Bush, he's had 7 years of experience

A mistake that people often make is that they believe that THEIR FRIENDS constitute a statistically random sample.

For example. "My friends all think that I am a nice person." Hummm.

Hasn't this already been reported on? Black people voting for Obama because he's Black? And it has also been reported that some women vote for hilary because she's Black. I mean c'mon.
