I can’t say I don’t see what McCain was doing by picking this Sarah Palin as his running mate. Rather than let one side steal the spotlight with all the talk of making history, he decided to pick an historically significant candidate of his own.
However, couldn’t/shouldn’t he have picked someone that people have actually heard of? Someone who would would have the qualities to run this country, should something happen to McCain.
I look at it this way. There are 4 people in the running to be President of the USA. Should anything happen to the President, the Vice President has to be ready to serve. I am positive that Obama and Biden are ready to serve, and as much as I don’t want him to be elected, McCain is also ready to serve. Does anyone actually think that Sarah Palin is ready to be the President of the United States?
She is governor of a state with one of the smallest populations in this country, and she’s never really served in any sort of way that would prepare her deal with foreign relations. While that may be one of Obama’s weaker points, according to the media, at least by serving in the United States Senate, he has dealt with issues of national and international importance and relevance on a day-to-day basis. Sarah Palin has not.
Sure, she seems like a maverick…a throwback to how McCain views himself. But Presidential material? Absolutely not.
Palin is BIG friends with BIG OIL. She wants to drill everywhere. She does not believe that man is contributing to global warming, and she’s anti-choice on abortion. Also, she hates polar bears. Basically, she’s dhunley’s dream candidate. lol
