[QUOTE]JAR59 - respectfully, comparing Palin's credentials to Obama's is insane. She went to 5 or 6 colleges, was a marginal student at best, and somehow secured a broadcast journalism degree. She then held an executive office in Alaska (pupulation of a mid-sized city) for just over 2 years. Then she quit! Obama attended Harvard Law School, and edited the prestigious law reivew (the first black ever to do so). He became a community organizer, shunning the big bucks he could've earned after law school, later becoming a state senator in Illinois, and then a US senator for 4 years. While she is admittedly cute and looks good in red, she cannot put a coherent series of thoughts together. The fact that Repulicans (some at least) are putting any stock in her as a viable standard bearer for the GOP is beyond belief, and is a reflection of the sad state of affairs in that party. Please take this as a civil comment - it is not personal - you have the right to your views and I respect that right, as much as it sometimes "Paines" me to listen. Go Pats!

Sarah Palin administered a state budget of 9 billion dollars in 2009.
She supervised about 26000 employees.
Before the mainstream media tore her to pieces, she was holding approval ratings in the 70's.
Barack Obama was editor of his college paper,however, he's refused to release his grade transcripts, then a community organizer working with the corrupt ACORN, then a State Senator for a couple years (who, incidentally, was elected by having all of his opponents removed from the ballot on technicalities, look it up), then was a US Senator for 143 days, with 75% of that time spent on the campaign trail.
Like I said before, I don't think she's ready for the big stage yet, either, but she did hold her own with 35 year Wahington insider Joe Biden in their one debate, after she'd been in Washington for about a half hour.
Put her experience against Obama's, take off your partisan glasses for a second, and you'll see that it's not as "insane" as think to compare the two.
