i guess she's QUALified, I don't like her that much though.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 11:21:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
No! She has two years of experience as a local politician, and she thinks that the Universe was created 4004 B.C.
McCain is 72 & his health is bad, so Ms Palin could be the President very soon. I don't want the U.S. to be lead by a bloody amateur!

no. I think McCain chose her only because she's young and will make him look good in the upcoming election. She seems kind of two-faced to me. On one hand, she wants to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Alaska, which is great. She's also trying to help with the energy crisis, which is also great. However, instead of trying to find alternative fuel that would be green friendly (in more ways than one) she wants to drill for oil in Alaska to make more gasoline. Is it just me, or is that a little, eh...hypocritical?
She's made huge budget cuts as governor of Alaska, has supported construction of a bridge that would cost $398 million and wouldn't generate much revenue (though she now claims that she told congress "thanks, but no thanks on that bridge to nowhere." What does that say about her integrity?) and has opted to keep economically unstable businesses running.

She has no idea what to do with money. She's fiscally irresponsible, and as fickle as John Kerry when it comes to allegiance. So all in all, no, she would not make a vice president.

*good vice president
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 11:25:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, and that's scary given McCain's health history. She's a heart attack away from leading the free world when all she has experience with is leading the state that probably has the least people living in it.

Second that,Kiki. Nuff said...

i am not sure but im sure we will all know soon enough

It's not about whether she's qualified to be VP; it's about whether she's qualified to be President if the worst happens. I don't think she is.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 4:07:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
She is qualified to be both VP and President by all legal standards.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 4:07:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Better qualified to be the VP than Obama is to be the president.

Cop-out.

She has been mayor of a town w/ less than 10,000 people and gov for 2 years of a state that has fewer residents than at least 70 U.S. metro areas. She didn't even know what the VP did a couple months ago; she has met McCain once ever; she has a journalism BA from Utah. She is the running mate of a 72-year-old. How does any of that make her more qualified to be VP - - the President-in-waiting - - than Obama is to be President?

Just picture this scenario.
Israel has just struck Iraq's centerfuge production facility. Iraq has mobilized it's forces calling for a war on the zionist infidels and their destruction. Russia has threatened attacks on Poland due to US missiles placed there and has begun flying bombers carrying nukes to cuba for station. Your economy is still going down and gas is sky rocketing due to Israel attacks.
McCain has a Heart Attack and passes away.
Palin becomes your Commander in Chief and Head of State. Welcome to the Presidency Mrs. Palin.

In fact just imagine it with all the current runners for the Presidency. The one you think can get the job done is the one I'll pick.

^Can we imagine McCain's heart attack each time?

no, i say he forgot that the time he met her was a one night stand
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 8:04:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
she is qualified just as much as George Bush was... take it whichever way you like.
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 8:47:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well, it doesn't take much to be qualified to be Vice President. It's a job where you don't do anything, you're really just chilling out and waiting around just in case something happens to the president.

Actually, it's pretty common to put trouble makers in the VP position because it gets them out of the way, puts them in a job where they can't cause much trouble. Like when William McKinley picked Teddy Roosevelt for his VP.

What exactly is McCain's health history? Has it been reported that he's having heart troubles or something? My understanding is that he's had a few melanomas removed- - hardly anything life threatening. If they can keep Cheney alive for 2 terms, I am confident that they can keep McCain going for at least one...

So Obama would be the guy to vote for if he can be counted on to have a heart attack at such an inopportune moment?
13 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 9/1/08 - 9:18:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well just don't go by Heart Attack. I survived mine at 48. I was using as an example as he was up in age. It could be any conditon or situation. What if Obama was assasinate etc.... I was implying put the canadiates in that kind of situation and if you feel comfortable with that person to do the job.

...but the scenario assumes that the president will die and the VP has to take over. What about the scenario that assumes that the President doesn't die and has to deal with such a situation? Shouldn't that be the guy to vote for?

The first part was originally intended for VP Palin then I thought about it and added to imagine with any who is possible to be in that role.
I think McCain would be in a better position to handle such scenarios, but I can't see Palin handling it. Vice versa with Obama as too inexperienced for such , but I feel Biden would be better suited. Too bad no McCain and Biden ticket.

So you feel in a crisis, Obama would lock Biden in a closet or what? Didn't he choose him to help with stuff like that?

Biden isn't going to be at Obama's side 24 hours a day. You can't count on Biden to save the day should Obama falter...
