No, I would not vote for Sarah Palin if she ran for the office of President or the office of Vice President. She may have been an effective governor but she was a horrible candidate the last time around and she cost McCain many votes, including mine. I'm not going to go into further detail because her worshipers will attack like wild hogs but she's not someone I would trust to lead this country.

First of all, welcome to myLot and may you enjoy it here as much as I and many of my friends do! Now, would I vote for Sarah Palin... Absolutely, positively, definitively NO!!! Why not? Gee, I could probably write a book listing all of the many, MANY reasons I'd never vote for Sister Sarah for anything, let alone President, but I'll try to keep it a bit more brief than that and list only the main points. For starters, I totally disagree with her politically on virtually every issue; however, that's not the main problem, there have been Presidents with whom I've disagreed on many things but I wasn't SCARED about them being President but the idea of "President Palin" frightens the crap out of me! She's already proven herself to be a quitter, that when the going gets rough, Sarah Palin gets going. I'm sorry, I know all of her many myLot fans and admirers believed she did it "for the people of Alaska" but it's my opinion she did it for herself, pure and simple. She's gotten more attention and she's certainly made far more money by quitting than she would have had she finished out her term. Hey, all the power to her if she wanted to strike while the iron was hot and make the big bucks but I feel that when we make a commitment, as she did to those who voted for her for Governor of Alaska, we're obligated to see that commitment through. She's also given every indication that she doesn't view all Americans equally, in fact she doesn't consider some of us to even be "real" Americans or from the "real" America! I have a problem with that. The President of the United States is the President of the ENTIRE United States, red states and blue states, and is there to serve ALL of the people of the United States, not just those of a certain party or ideology. Finally, while I certainly don't think it's a requirement for our President to be a graduate of one of the "elite" Ivy League colleges such as Harvard or Yale I DO think he or she needs to be more intelligent than the average person and, above all, very intellectually curious and willing and EAGER to learn what he or she doesn't already know that is relevant to the position. Sarah Palin doesn't even seem to realize she has a lot to learn. Annie

I'd first like to say... thanks for the welcome, I am enjoying it here already, reading different viewpoints and getting a grasp on how some people really think.. quite interesting. Uh, I never meant for this discussion to become a comparison between Obama, Palin, Bush or any other President, as I am having this debate in another discussion. Even still, I respect everyone's opinion for what they are and try to be as open-minded as I can because I do know my facts. There was no intention to bash Palin or anyone else. I just don't feel that she's "fit" for the White House. Yes, Obama is having a hard time changing this country around to the great place it once was, but we cannot blame him for everything, either. It took almost 10 years for us to get to this point. Only God himself could have fixed it in under 2 years... that's a little bogus. I do, however, feel that he could do a better job articulating to the American people EXACTLY what it is that he is trying to implement to help us and then actually acting on those EXACT actions without alteration. Bush.... was an idiot. Plain and simple. Yes, the man may have graduated from an Ivy League school, but lacking the necessary common sense doesn't help matters any if you can't handle life situations. But, it's sad that I see him disappear into the shadows after making a complete mess of everything and no one blames him for anything. He gets to live out the rest of his life peacefully somewhere with Secret Service to protect him for the rest of his short days. And, it's also funny how they passed a statute to stop doing that once Obama's term is up, so him and his family will be unprotected. When making comparisons, it's nice to know all of the statistics and that person's life history including all of their accomplishments and all of their failures, but I tend to look at results. It doesn't matter really what lead us to this point, it's the fact that we're here...

Dr Mario you're entitled to your own opinion as I am to mine. You voiced yours. I voiced mine. Have a nice life.

Good question. If h*ll froze over and Palin became the Republican presidential candidate, it would create quite a conundrum for me. I am not a fan of Ms. Palin, as she is on the "religious right" which, for the most part, believes in moral governing. This belief is essentially moral statism and ignores the premise of limited government, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Not to mention she is a very divisive figure. However, I don't believe the country can handle four more years of the Obama administration's unconstitutional actions, unlimited spending, and expansion of federal government. That being said, if the choice is Obama and Palin...I would be forced to choose Palin. This isn't going to happen as she won't be the Republican candidate, so it's not something we have to worry about...thankfully.

LOL I liked your comment from the very beginning because that'd be the only instance where I'd vote for Palin too but hell would have to freeze completely over similar to that of Alaska lol. I never knew she believed in moral governing, that's an interesting tidbit to add to the conversation. I find moral governing to be very ineffective especially since we spent so many years trying to escape England just for the separation of church and state. I don't think she's yet quite fit for being the leader of the United States. I don't think I'd vote for her but as you said Obama's chances of getting re-elected are slim to none.

I would vote for Clinton before I voted for Palin just based on intellect alone. Thanks for your comment!
