In an interview with the Omaha World-Herald, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) questioned whether John McCain's running mate, Sarah Palin, has the experience to be president of the United States:
"I do think in a world that is so complicated, so interconnected and so combustible, you really got to have some people in charge that have some sense of the bigger scope of the world," Hagel said. "I think that's just a requirement."
So is Palin qualified to be president?
"I think it's a stretch to, in any way, to say that she's got the experience to be president of the United States," Hagel said.
