    The mayor of any decent sized city in the lower 48 has more
    executive experience than this governor.

    True... her "experience" is not much of anything. Heck, the class president
    in my high school could claim to have as big of a constituency as she did
    (ok, not quite... but you get the idea).

    After harping on Obama for his lack of experience McCain picked Palin...

    judgment... and Palin clearly has some serious problems there: unless you

    I'd personally take judgement over experience at this point. Having experience

    That is rather disputable. The real question is "what executive
    experience". This is much like the old Wendy's commercial.

    At least anyone inside the beltway at least has some experience
    dealing with Washington.

    Jimmy Carter had "more executive experience" than Obama too. Plus
    he had more executive experience over a longer period of time with a
    much more impressive/meaningful state.

    My home state has at least 3 cities "bigger" than Alaska.

    What exactly is there to it. This is not a question anyone has
    addressed. People just make it into something vague that's supposed
    to be impressive.

    No. This person was picked because she's even more conservative than
    McCain is and is bound to appeal (at least on some level) to all of those
    fundies that McCain has been annoying for most of his campaign.

    ...that and some silly notion that "chics" who wanted to vote for
    Hillary would vote for McCain just because he put a girl on the ticket.

    Not to mention banning almost all abortions (including
    pregnancies caused by rape or incest). To her credit, she
    did mention that her daughter's pregnant, 17, and about to
    be married to the father, which blunts criticism somewhat.

    But only somewhat.

    Don't forget that she's now campaigning *against* the
    bridge she helped pull in funding for. It's one of the
    stranger positions I've seen lately -- though Obama's
    supposed flip-flop on oil drilling is a little odd too.

    (I say supposed because I've not studied his positions
    extensively.)

    Is Palin about to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency?

    She is female - so that might pull in some Hillary voters who pick a
    candidate based on gender (a silly thing to do in my view).

    She is also very pleasing to the extreme right wing religious factions of
    the Republican party... they are willing to overlook the idea that she is
    not their "ideal" wife being subservient to her husband... and willing to
    back pedal from the idea that having a pregnant teen reflects poorly on the
    mother of the teen. She is a very religious gun-toting
    anti-environmentalist who wants to ban books... what more could they want in
    a candidate!

    The flip flopping on the right on the issue of teen pregnancy is amazing.
    In addition to the ones often repeated already, remember that Clinton with
    his "mistakes" was the cause for all these teen pregnancies... but a VP with
    a pregnant teen is a family matter. Huh?

    Agreed - it is... though at least with the energy problem it is a complex
    issue where it could make sense for ones view to change over time. The
    bridge to "nowhere" has no defense...

    Experience and judgment are not the same. McCain clearly has more
    experience - but picking someone just on experience is foolish. Picking
    someone with no real experience is also foolish... and Obama is weak on that
    - it would be good if he had more experience. He, wisely, selected a VP
    with plenty of experience who is in many ways of like-mind to him (though I
    would not want him to surround himself with only people who agree with
    him... the foolishness of this is seen with Bush and who he surrounds
    himself with).

    I love the comments on experience from Karl Rove...
    <http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/in...title=sarah-pa
    lin-gender-card>

    Steve Carroll, clearly, has bought into the new-Rove and now-McCain

    She had a constituency of less than 10,000 people... which is hardly
    something that shows great experience... *especially* when her "experience"
    includes at least one ethics probe against her, a desire to ban books in the
    local library, etc.

    His decision clearly puts his judgment in question. He and Obama keep
    talking about having better judgment than the other - and in McCain's
    biggest decision of the election he clearly made a mistake.

    Some will vote for her simply because of her gender. Amazingly ignorant way
    to vote in my view... but each person gets to decide how they wish to vote.
    At least Steve Carroll will not be voting... reportedly he has lost his
    right to vote based on some "mistakes" of his background... though he says
    he merely does not want to.

    He was probably thinking she has more executive experience than Obama.

    > And while experience is important so is judgment


    I'd personally take judgement over experience at this point. Having
    experience
    as of being entrenched in Washington isn't necessarily a good thing IMO.

    No, I just really want to know why you are ashamed to be a member of
    the Democratic/Socialist party. It's just funny. I understand why you
    are ashamed but I'd like to hear it in your own words. I'm sure you
    think you are being cute when you claim you don't support either
    party. But just saying that makes you a liberal, socialist democrat.
    Because liberals/socialists/democrats are scared to make decisions.
    They are terrified to make decisions in public because when they flip/
    flop later on people will know about it.

    I could be mistaken but believe that the only "executive experience" Obama has
    is when he served with Ayers.

    If you really despise "politicans" that much then you should put my
    neighbor's cat on the ballot. Any noises you make about "executive experience"
    automatically disqualifies anyone on the basis of being seasoned politicians.
    It's really an unavoidable part of "being experienced". Anyone with a meaningful
    amount of experience is going to "be a politician".

    Bloomberg would have been a WONDERFUL running mate for McCain.

    ....I dunno. I think they're just digging a bigger and bigger hole by
    pointing out obvious superior candidates for the position.

    The question is "what does she add"? "Executive experience" isn't it.
