What they are afraid that we; will discover and have discovered, by her being sequestered from the press, is that she is without the knowledge and experience necessary to act as the Vice President of this country. We also know that if called upon, she could not act as the President. If the positions were reversed and she were the candidate for the Democratic Party, the Republicans would be yelling FOUL. To deny this is two faced. This is not an on the job training position. For her to attend a session of the United Nations, and meet with leaders of other nations, is NOT experience with foreign relations. It is an abomination that she is not comfortable, nor is the GOP confident in her ability to sit before any group, at any time, place, even impromptu, and be able to hold her own. By now she should have been on news shows, talk shows and have put herself out before the nation on TV. Standing at a podium, giving her same speech over and over again is just making her look like a Stepford-wife who happened to be in the right place at the right time to become the mayor of a small town and in the same manner to become the governor. And that, is exactly what she is, what she is beginning to look like. Were she prepared, she would have taken off running and appeared before the press corp, the news shows. She would have been on the next Sunday "Face the Nation" which is what was expected, but she did not. She has demeaned every woman, by accepting this nomination and handling herself in this manner. She has demeaned every woman who would have been qualified to handle the position and succeeded. A true woman, who is professional would recognize their ability's and their inabilities. To fail will jeopardize the safety and security of this country as well as send women hurtling backwards from the glass ceiling. She is a selfish woman and she is not qualified to do this job, and THAT is what she is hiding.

Boy, do I agree with you. I guess it is true that life is not always fair. I agree she looked like a good deal (before they knew about Troopergate), and a very ambitious woman said, "Oh, goodie. Look what I have a chance to be!" She is not someone, whose previous resume gives her any right, as a man or a woman, to seek such a job. She's not qualified, and running someone who is not is not a tribute to women in any way.

She has no less qualifications than Obama and she is the number 2 on the ticket. Troopergate started before McCain selected her. It has just been blown up by the media and Obama's team of smear experts. As for her "right" to seek the job, who are you to dictate her rights? Any man or woman over the age of 35 who is a natural born US citizen has the RIGHT to run for the presidency. Obama has less experience than at least 2 of the third party candidates out there so how would you feel if they said he didn't have the right to run?

"This is not an on the job training position. For her to attend a session of the United Nations, and meet with leaders of other nations, is NOT experience with foreign relations." Did you consider it "experience with foreign relations" when Obama did his little tour of different countries to meet with leaders? Your questioning the experience of the number 2 person and yet you are eagerly supporting a campaign where the number 1 person has no more experience than she does. "By now she should have been on news shows, talk shows and have put herself out before the nation on TV." She's been on the ticket for less than four weeks and she's done 2 interviews as well as numerous speeches. How many interviews did Obama do in his first 4 weeks on the campaign trail? How many does he do on average over a four week period? How many has Biden done since he was picked by Obama 5 weeks ago? Do you have this information before you rush to judgment?

Obama has been in a leadership role for longer than Palin, he has rubbed elbow's with the Washington crowd including foreign dignitaries. That was not his first trip to the Middle East. Obama has also been campaigning for over 19 months, he has the presence of a dignitary, evidence by his speaking ability. He is engaging and that was evidenced by his popularity on that trip, but that trip is by no means the limit of his experience in international relations. Taskr, if the shoe was on the other foot you would be the first to complain loudly about these issues and you darn well know it.

"Obama has been in a leadership role for longer than Palin" Sarah Palin has 6 years in a leadership role as mayor of Wasilla and 2 years as governor of Alaska. What leadership role or roles has Obama had. Please name them. "he has rubbed elbow's with the Washington crowd including foreign dignitaries. That was not his first trip to the Middle East." When was his last trip to the Middle East prior to that? What heads of foreign nations has he rubbed elbows with prior to this campaign? "Obama has also been campaigning for over 19 months, he has the presence of a dignitary, evidence by his speaking ability. He is engaging and that was evidenced by his popularity on that trip, but that trip is by no means the limit of his experience in international relations." So he's a charismatic person, what's the point? Anthony Hopkins is all the things, and he's better at them, minus the campaigning, but nobody's pushing for him to be elected. There's more to being a president than being a celebrity. Every politician campaigns. I don't see how his campaigning means any more than Bob Barr or Cynthia McKinney, much less John McCain. "Taskr, if the shoe was on the other foot you would be the first to complain loudly about these issues and you darn well know it." That's a load of crap. I've never made a big deal about the choices of VPs in the past and I've NEVER attacked a candidate over their choice of VP. I concern myself with the candidates for president more than anything else. Now you're just reaching.
