Quite right.

Hillary seemed to think she was owed the nomination because A) she had been First Lady and B) she was, well, a lady. And when the going got tough, she played the gender card, saying she wasn't allowed in the "boys' club."

She bounced a slam dunk of a primary off the rim. And the best the Dems had other than Hillary was Barack Obama.
Not sure of the relevance of these points to the OP, but whatever.

Conversely, the best thing the Republicans have is basically four more years of Bush policies. We know how that's worked out.
A flawed analysis. McCain loathes Bush, and is well aware of his shortcomings.

Well, just like every other Palin topic on this forum, things evolved into a discussion about Obama. You're the one who mentioned that he wouldn't have received the nomination because of his race, am I correct?

Hm, let's see...

He wouldn't even have been nominated. And you know it.

We all hope for the former, of course. But denying the latter possibility is as indicative of naivete as the unquestioning support of Palin which the OP identified.
You brought up Obama. You veered it off-topic. Nice try to attempt making it look like I'm the one trying to derail the discussion though.

He is? Maybe he could tell us how he's going to be different from said shortcomings. Maybe he could spend his money airing ads detailing them, instead of merely why Barack Obama is wrong for America. I'm waiting to hear why he's right for America, and frankly, it's too late now.
