Palin doesn’t have experience

I was stunned by John McCain’s rash and poorly researched choice of Sarah Palin as his vice presidential nominee. Happily, a woman can now credibly run for president or be nominated for vice president. However, no one can pretend that Palin is the most qualified Republican woman available to competently step into the role of President of the United States if the need arose. All else being equal, would someone with her resume have been chosen if she were a frumpy looking middle-aged woman (without lipstick), or even a good looking man? I sincerely doubt it.

To favorably compare her sketchy experience to Barack Obama’s is irrelevant and misleading. Obama was chosen by millions of Americans looking for a new leader. Palin was chosen by one man looking to get elected. After hearing her snide acceptance speech at the Republican convention, I understand why McCain chose to use her as one of his stepping stones. It was a short-sighted choice made by a “maverick” campaigner, not by a thoughtful, responsible leader with America’s best interests at heart. If this is the way McCain makes important decisions that could potentially affect the security of all Americans, not to mention the rest of the world, what kind of president would he be?
