    5: into the interview:

    Brain Williams: Yesterday you tied this notion of an early test to the new president to this notion of preconditions that you both have been hammering the Obama campaign on. First of all, in your mind, what is a precondition?

    Sarah Palin: You have to have some diplomatic strategy going into a meeting like Ahmadinejad or Kim Jung Il or one of these dictators that would seek to destory America or our allies. It is so naive and so dangerous for a presidential candidate to just declare that they would sit down with a leader like Ahmadinejad and just talk about the problems, the issues that are facing them, that's some ill prepaedness right there.

    She also discusses that she is ready to be the President of the United States because she's dealt with multi-billion dollar budgets and managed 24,000 employees. :lol:

    She thinks the VP is "in charge" of the Senate.

    Like, totally man....

    What an idiot.

    The hilarious thing is, that Palin is now the biggest drag on McCain. Even his associations with Bush aren't hurting him as much as Palin is. That NBC/WSJ poll had a large majority responding that she's not qualified to be president, even majorities of white women think she's unqualified, and Obama's support among women has skyrockted to historic levels. I think Obama was winning women by like 53% to 35%, or something like that.

    LOL @ grandpa for pulling a cheap and unamerican political stunt in the misguided hope of pandering to women voters.

    What a moron!

    They are. They preside over the Senate, if they choose to do so. Sorry, it's just facts. Every Vice President before Nixon did it, he was the one who started this whole "Let the President pro tempore handle it" thing.

    Wrong. The only job of a VP is to break tie votes, that's it.

    Wrong. There's been a whole discussion on this today. Read it, I'm not reposting everything I already posted.

    Historically, the Vice President HAS presided over the Senate, until the 1960's. You can find this information at Senate.gov, which I believe was posted in the topic I just linked.

    Kid, I'm not going to try to teach you high school history and government class all over again.

    The VP is powerless, the constitution give them virtually no power, and the only role they play is to break tie votes and preside over the counting of electoral college votes. They are not "in charge" of the senate.;

    That's the way its been for 225 years. Did you get an "F" in american history class in 10th grade?

    I'm not going to argue anymore about this. You're obviously in love with Palin/Bush/McCAin and willing to spin for them even when history and the facts dispute you.

    Your point, David?

    You know, just because you disagree with her doesn't make her an idiot.

    You're fucking retarded. Considering I'm not even voting for McCain/Palin, this statement made me laugh.

    I'm sorry you don't want to read facts from the Senate's very own website, I know it might cloud your feeble mind.

    Please name one Vice President, in the entire 225 year history of the United States that was deeply involved in parliamentary procedure, provided a firm guiding had to crafting and passing legislation, and did anything more than cast a few tie breaking votes or occassional informal consultation.

    I'll wait for your answer. Just one vice president.
