The simple answer IS - unless they have already been President - THEY HAVE NO EXPERIENCE BEING PRESIDENT AND LEARN ON THE JOB!.

McCain has no experience being President either, and would be learning on the job if he had won.

I, personally, never railed Palin for inexperience, I railed her for being uneducated and unable to hold a basic conversation on policy!

Obama: US Senate, Illinois State Senate, Harvard Law, Columbia Univ. He actually lives in a city. He's actually been in Washington, D.C. He's actually been out of the country.
Well, obviously he's a elitist.
You know many 'murkins want uneducated fools to run the country.
They lost this time.

His work experience and record are public. Whether or not he had experience for the presidency is subjective. There is no concrete evidence that indicates what is not and what is proper experience for the presidency. It is up to each individual to determine what they think proper experience is.

In my opinion, I want a candidate with less Washington experience. To me, that means they have had less time to be bought and corrupted my lobbyist.

I find it sad this is all you can take from his speech last night. Even Republicans are saying that his speech was impressive.

Because it is a very stupid question. First of all, he never said that in his speech last night. Second of all, Obama is brilliant whereas Palin has a delusion that she is.

I thought we wanted change. If Obama is going to make one mistake after another, that seems like 4 more years of the same thing.
The nonsense continues....what presidential candidate who has never held the office before, has experience being president?

Think. You status says that you are praying for yourself.

You left out her governorship. I don't think she or Obama is qualified to be President. I am just amused at how your side changes it's tune constantly, depending on the day. Your side can have it one way, but the other can't. It's simple.

Ok, the election is over but I feel I have to point this out:

Barack Obama was running against John McCain, NOT Sarah Palin. And judging by what I saw of McCain last night, I'm willing to bet he'll still be very much alive and kicking in 4 years so no, I don't think Sarah Palin was any closer to the Presidency than Joe Biden will be.

Please go back into any of my personal statements and point out where I myself stated Obama had experience. I have always maintained that I really don't care how much experience he has, just about his stances on the platforms and how he will perform. I don't care if he's never stated before that he had no experience, and I don't care what other supporters say. I'm not playing both sides, like you're claiming I am.

Also note that I never got on Palin about her inexperience, mostly on her stances and blatant corruption (No matter what a panel of people that she appointed said)
