It says something to me that Barak Obama picked Joe Biden as his running mate; it says that Obama is not afraid of working with people who have more experience in politics than he, people with independent stature.
McCain’s choice of a hockey mom who stumbled into politics from the PTA and served as governor for a couple of years in a small state, makes me wonder if McCain is perhaps uncomfortable around well-qualified people, the kind of people he would have to rely on as advisers running a very complex federal government.
This tells me Obama is comfortable with who he is, and perhaps McCain is not. Having a president with personal doubts that play out in poor choices is downright scary.
I’ve had a chance now to listen to Palin’s acceptance speech at the RNC. Palin is no slouch at the speakers lectern and comes across as no wimp. I question still McCain’s judgment in selecting this person who is both inexperienced and so far to the right.
D. H., I stand corrected. And the North Slope Borough is the largest county-level division in the US, although its population of 7385 is equivalent to what we would call a “small town” in the lower 48.
a small state? do you know AK is 2.5 times the size of Texas?
But thank you for the help on drying a cell phone – I’m trying it right now!!!
