    There is an article on Yahoo! about how Rep. Senator Chuck Hagel questions the credentials of Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin. Cant post it because I can not put in links apparently until my 15th post. Can anyone do me the honor of posting the link and getting the discussion kicked off? Thanks in advance.

    You know it is bad when even a Republican will admit that Palin lacks the necessary experience to run a country. Granted, Hagel seems pretty liberal from everything I have read, but it is still telling. It is clear Palin is just on the ticket to garner the Hillary vote, which admittedly is a smart move politically, but has terrible/non existent credentials. I do not understand all of the Palin hype. If she was a man, everyone would be calling McCain an idiot right now.

    Just as you have people on the left, moderate DEMs, and true centrists that repeat the fact that is shouted by conservatives, that Obama is grossly under qualified and inexperienced for the job

    and your point is?

    And as you 'cannot understand' the Palin hype... many of use cannot understand the Obama hype

    I can't remember how many Democrats said Obama lacked the experience, but one comes to mind: Joe Biden.

    I find it amazing you guys keep talking about Palin as lacking experience when she clearly has more executive experience than Obama.

    I was wondering about that as well. Palin has slightly more experience than Obama. Couldn't the Republicans have found a female with more experience?

    Sure, but not any that are viable. Hutchinson and Snowe come to mind, but they are Senators, and would not have helped any.

    Palin has more experience than Obama, and is extremely popular in here home state. She also has a reputation as a reformer who is not afraid to take on her own party, and she is much younger than McCain.

    A perfect fit for McCain.

    Picking Palin will go down as one of the most crafty political moves of our times. If that is McCain wins.
