We think that John Sidney McCain has made an outstanding pick in Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. While others may deride her executive experience and the fact that she is one heart beat away from the presidency, perhaps they should consider the 'executive experience of Barack Hussein Obama who won't be just one step away if elected. Some how things seem a bit mixed up. We have:
John Sidney McCain running for president -- a 72 year old with 30 years in Washington with adocumented record with a son in Iraq
Barack Hussein Obama -- a 47 year old with 20 years as an organizer and 143 days of service inthe Senate with little or no accomplishments and lots of present and abstentions for votes.
Sarah Palin -- A 44 year old mother of 5, governor with documented conservative credentialsand with a son about to go to Iraq
Joe Biden -- A sixty-five year old with more years in Washington than McCain, with the 3rdmost liberal voting record in the Senate.
Without juxtaposing the 4 it is hard to imagine how one ticket can be considered more of a change ticket than the other, hard to say inexperience is a factor and hard to say age is an issue.Given that John Sidney McCain made his choice after Barack Hussein Obama, it seems that McCain has somewhat neutralized what perceived advantages his opponents had on change, age and experience.
