They only gave her the talking points. Apparently, she hasn't been keeping up with foreign events. I guess her sister's husband was more important.

Honestly people, do you really think this woman is a good choice for the second highest office in the country? Disregard McCain for a minute. Just be honest. There is a lot more at stake here than an election.

THAT is exactly what I thought.

I don't remember posting a thread about the Tennessee Titans. I think you must have me confused with someone else.

I was thinking the same thing.

The problem is, Obama being #1 has set the bar SO LOW, that one cannot say Palin is a "bad choice" without also simultaneously believing Obama is as well.

DO you think Obama knew half as much as he does now when he began campaigning? Do you think he knows half as much as he should?

One moment that convinced me Obama was way out of his league was during a debate with Hillary. The moderator posed a question about the new Russian Prime Minister (President?).... it was not asked of either in particular.... Obama's head whipped right around to look at and defer to Hillary, who started to answer the question. She knew what the guy's name was, and she knew the situation. When Obama had a chance to speak, it was only, "I agree with Hillary." You KNOW if the moderator had asked HIM, directly, he would not have known what to say, and especially would not have known the guy's name!

The guy is not ready. Period. Neither Obama nor Palin are ready to lead the largest economy and militaryi in the world. Only problem is, there's a 100% chance the inexperienced deer-in-headlights will be president if Obama wins, and maybe a 5% chance McCain will keel over in a few months as Palin catches up to the "experience" Obama has "now."

Maybe she should do less hunting and more studying on her foreign affairs. One would argue she is only a VP candidate but with a 72 year old Presidential candidate, with serious skin cancer, who will not submit his medical records is a real concern for all Americans. If God forbid John McCain has a stroke, PALIN is going to step in. OMG She needs to go back to Alaska and stay there, forever and go back to be the hockey/PTA mom.

I wonder? What's it like having your worldview fed to you on a nice, partisan platter where you don't ever have the curiosity to seek out and verify on your own?:

How about just as credible as your posting that Stage II melanoma can not be invasive. Or just as credible as your posting McCain's cancer is gone. Or, just as credible as your posting Obama has not disclosed his medical records. There's more and I've reponded to your erroneous posts with citable facts but you just run to another thread and post more of the same mis-information.

But, this is America afterall...

Whether she stays or goes ... well, I was going to say that it doesn't matter to me, but it does. We have precious little time as it is to get to know enough about Palin to make an informed decision. Yank her out of there and put someone else in, and unless that person is a mainstream politician, we're right back where we started, only with even LESS time.

The larger question for me - and it has bothered me since McCain picked Palin (and caused me to say "Who??") - is, what does this say about the judgment shown by McCain? And is this the type of judgment we want to see in our next President?
Exactly. Palin is McCain's Hariette Miers. Even if McCain chose a new running mate, it makes him look really bad.
