“And another one for Ms. Palin who wants to be in the trenches with the guys but then uses the 'sexism' card:
If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch.”

“P.S. It is very hard not to take the "shotgun approach" of dissecting Ms. Palin's candidacy....she'gives thoughtful voters so much material to work with that it seems inadequate to use single shot!”

“People are worried because a VP with no qualitative experience, and polarizing, divisive personal/professional beliefs, should not be near the Presidency!
Thoughtful, intelligent citizens want Congress to work together in an inclusive way. Mssrs. Obama, McCain and probably even Biden are in that group of citizens. Ms. Palin is not.

Thus moderates and Independents (who who will decide this election), dilemma:
Vote for a very qualified Prez candidate who has an extensive, readable track record, with an unqualfied, neo-conservative VP with whom I politically and personally disagree with in every way? candidates who claim that they will change the very party that they are a part of, and has taken the country to this mess?

or vote for a lesser qualified Prez candidate, with a lighter track record although "vetted" by 18 million voters, with a very qualified but possibly entrenched thinking VP? which party claims they will change the country's direction even though their party has been able to do basically nothing in the last 2 years?

The President and Vice President are the Executive Branch, not the Legislative. So, voters also to take into consideration whether they believe that Mr. McCain or Mr. Obama will be better able to work towards non-partisan goals with Congress.

I view the Prez/VP candidates as a package deal and thus this centrist Republican voter will vote Democratic in November due to the GOP's VP candidate...

...and thus the difficulty in dismissing the curent furor over Ms. Palin.”

“And "Wolfgate" where she spent $400,000 of taxpayer money to lead a campaign to defeat a state proposal to ban hunting wolves from airplanes and helicopters.

Also "Magic-gate" where she tried to make her daughter's pregnancy disappear by having her carry Ms. Palin's baby. And this while she was being introduced as the frickin' GOP nominee for Vice President of the United States!!!!!!!!!

How stupid do the Republican spin doctors think the public is?? Thanks for making us a laughing stock on the world stage, Ms. Palin.”

“Ms. Palin, in only 1 1/2 years of "executive" experience, managed to get herself embroiled in many controversies.

Not the least of which is "Troopergate". Wow, and she managed to do that in just 1 1/2 years??!? That must be a new record for a novice governor.”

“Palin "fought the oil companies" before she joined the oil companies.
She certainly brings balance to the ticket.”

“The choice of Ms. Palin as VP nominee has even pushed registered Republicans over to the Democratic camp!

In our house there are two Repubs, but one of us is going to vote Dem if Ms. Palin is not dumped.

Thus, Mr. McCain could have had two votes from us, but instead he will get - in essence - no votes because one of us will cancel the other's vote.”

“good point...

how come palin has to practice for a week to speak out on anything....a week to do her acceptance speech....a week to have a major interview (scripted by karl rove), and when she goes off script she still manages to gaffe it up!!! even dan quayle gave interviews after he was selected...will america have to wait a week for palin to make any decisions in the white house vp/ or president(god forbid)....she is not ready for any position!!!!”

“To credit Ms. Palin with "executive experience" one needs to look at whether that is truly credit-worthy.

Let's see, she won the governor's position with 115,000 votes. She didn't WIN BY 115,000 votes. That's all the votes she got!

And she's governor of a state with the same population as Baltimore, MD.

That means there's about a zillion executives in the U.S. - other mayors, governors, city administrators, university presidents, CEOs, CFFs, etc, etc - of bigger organizations, with MUCH more responsiblity than Ms. Palin who are MUCH MORE qualified than Ms. Palin to be VP of the United States - if one is to go with your definition of what constitutes "executive" qualifications.

The only reason she is on the ticket, the ONLY reason, is that she can deliver the neo-conservative vote. And possibly some of the female voters who don't really care about qualifications for a VP, they just want a woman on the ticket.

The outcome of the election for the Republicans will depend on the Independents, and the centrist Republicans, like me. Unless Ms. Palin is dumped off the ticket, this Republican is voting Democratic in November.”
