RealClearPolitics - Articles - McCain Pick is Paying Off Big Time

"Liberals howl that Palin has no experience, no qualifications to be president of the United States. But the lady has more executive experience than McCain, Joe Biden and Obama put together.
None of them has ever started or run a business as Palin did. None of them has run a giant state like Alaska, which is larger than California and Texas put together. And though Alaska is not populous, Gov. Palin has as many constituents as Nancy Pelosi or Biden.
She has no foreign policy experience, we are told. And though Alaska's neighbors are Canada and Russia, the point is valid. But from the day she takes office, Palin will get daily briefings and sit on the National Security Council with the president and secretaries of state, treasury and defense.
She will be up to speed in her first year.
And her experience as governor of Alaska, dealing with the oil industry and pipeline agreements with Canada, certainly compares favorably with that of Barack Obama, a community organizer who dealt in the mommy issues of food stamps and rent subsidies.
Where Obama has poodled along with the Daley Machine, Palin routed the Republican establishment, challenging and ousting a sitting GOP governor before defeating a former Democratic governor to become the first female and youngest governor in state history."

Hysteria?

More like glee. She has all sorts of strange baggage.

I would say its going to be an awfully close race... when polls show a difference in only the single digits, it means ANYONE can win... I rather neither win but that isn't a possibility... the Obama hype has been "we are ahead in the polls, so we will win" is a bit of B.S..... polls don't mean much, if anything at all.... the McCain strategy definitely has leveled the playing field and the democrats really do hate it and from their posts, are scared... and rightfully so.... it was almost a slam dunk for Obama but the RNC strategy will pay off and make it a very close race... I am curious as to who is going to win... even with the Obama hype and liberal media love and GOP bashing, the McCain supporters sure are doing really well (much better than I expected)... I don't like McCain and hope he doesn't win but what alternative do I have? Obama? No thanks to either one...

Was it hysteria when the Rove machine savaged McCain saying he had a black love child and his wife had serious drug problems?????
