I should say too that I'm still researching Sarah Palin, what I said above is my preliminary findings from when I heard it yesterday.

Her office is being investigated for the firing of a former relative of hers that was on the police force. The chief of police didn't act fast enough in firing him and so HE go fired by her. That is what is being investigated. The thing is, SHE opened the investigation herself. She basically said "I have nothing to hide, dig away" to clear her name. I think it was the smart thing to do honestly. And I see her being mayor of 9000 as more experience than Obama for the simple reason that she was elected. She didn't run unopposed. And, unless I'm wrong, Obama was slated to LOSE his senatorial race until his opponent had a sex scandal and dropped out of the running. Obama got it with no fight. I'm not saying that's WRONG, but it does make me wonder.

No body has enough experience to be President. They get the experience when they get the job. Unless you are wealthy, I don't even know why it is even up for discussion on voting for John McCain and his posse, no matter who he selected for VP. I like it that Sara has been selected and I like her beauty and her beauty queen days, but for me that is the end of it. You have to vote on what a candidate is promising for you, not on whether they are a woman or not, or whether they are black or not. Look at this economy, where have all of the American jobs gone? The rest of the world seem to hold America (and you) in contempt. A lot of our rights and liberties have eroded under Bush. Do we need anymore arrogant Republicans ruining things for us? I agree with Hillary Clinton: No way, no how, no McCain.

its actually the contrary she does not have any experience, according to yahoo news her biggest accomplishment is a mayor of 9,000 people, she is actually being investigated for something i was walking out the door when that was on the news, let me do some research
Mykie7 Mykie7 8 years
Great, she DOES have more experience than Obama, but I don't know that she's got enough to be VP, just like I don't know the he's got enough for the top job. All the candidates have pros and cons, right now it's a matter of picking the lesser of two evils.

She has more years of experience than Obama, and he is the potus candidate.

She doesn't have the experience needed to be in the White house. If something were to happen to Mcain I would not want her to lead this country.

The more I hear about Palin, the more I like her. I know that people say we should look past the "physical appearance", but being a woman isn't just physical. A woman will often times take a completely different approach to sitautions than a man might. I even considered voting for Hilary several years ago when she talked about running for President. I changed my mind once I got to know her better though. But it was still very tempting to want to have a woman in the white house.

i think that it was a VERY smart move for mccain to pick a woman..and i guess that we'll see how it turns out i would love to see jen on 30 Rock - she's very funny and would fit in well with the cast i think as for oprah - we all know that she gets emotional for things/people that she supports so this is just on the same track as all that. i think that it's wonderful that she's remained so supportive for the past few months happy b-day to MJ - i can't believe that he's 50 already so will drew kick it off with his role in spamalot? i'm kind of upset that i saw it already with the guy from AI - i love drew and know that he'll do better! i read the story about DD and i hope that it works out for the best. it's hard to hear that sort of thing from a family guy but they all seem like they will work it out as for the movie - yea - i knew that Tom would find a solution there. it's not like the studio didn't have insurance on that sort of thing..they aren't dumb!

Exactly. It's just too bad that there are so many people for whom it would be an automatic disqualifier.

I should say it hasn't been proven he's a muslim OR a muslim extremist.
Mykie7 Mykie7 8 years
Jude, it shouldn't be unless it is proven that he's a muslim EXTREMIST, which hasn't been proven. Anymore than it should matter that he's black, or that the VP Republican candidate is a woman. It shouldn't, but again sadly, it probalby will.

OMFG For the thirty thousandth time in the history of this election, Barack Obama is NOT a Muslim. (If he was, is that an automatic disqualifier?)

the sad facts are this will be a racial election. I overheard docs yesterday said how depressing it will be the White House will be a Black House. Truthfully Im not sure America is ready for a Black President. His Muslim non Christian background does not help.

I am a life-long democrat and have never considered voting for a republican candidate. My hate for Bush knows no boundaries. But I am overwhelmed (not in a good way) by over-the-top pimping of Obama by celebrities and the media... and the equally over-the-top villifying of McCain. Now there is this immediate vilification of McCain's VP choice. She's just a regular working class woman with kids and a career. I don't know what to think. I don't like this uber-harshness coming from our camp.

Okay - Now I will consider McCain!! Of course, it's still very early. I was so disappointed with Obama's choice with Joe Biden. I've followed him for years and he shows me nothing. Not what I was looking for when I heard the word "change".

Surely Americans will see past the physical characteristics and make an informed decision.
Yeah...good luck with that.
nsgal1975 nsgal1975 8 years
I wish people could stop focusing on physical characteristics- Obama is Black! McCain is old! Palin is a woman! Whatever. Let's talk about their positions and the issues that they are interested in. What is their election platform? Surely Americans will see past the physical characteristics and make an informed decision.
Mykie7 Mykie7 8 years
Ohana, you are so right! I just hope this woman has the experience she needs, but it's going to take some personal research on my part. That debate will be interesting, for sure!

I don't trust Obama at all. I think this is great for McCain's election. I will be voting for him for SURE.
