Apparently I am what you describe as a "misguided soul". Though no one who has discussed politics with me would ever call me a liberal, also they never heard me endorse Palin for the office of U.S. President.
By no means do I rule her out, yet I need to be more convinced that she will be qualified to take the U.S. back to some likeness of the greatness she once had---never perfect but it sure was better!
This would be more than a one man (or one woman) job no matter how virtuous the occupant of the oval office. If Sarah does OK while not fouling up the job bad enough to sour the voters on another similar candidate next time around, she will have done well in passing the baton in a longer effort. I’m not chiefly speaking of your kind of skepticism anyhow. I’m concerned about those who would sooner let abysmal policies go on forever rather than have them replaced by a less bad, but still imperfect policy.
What qualifications does the current president hold?
The current president is the most incompetent president we have ever seen.
The man never ran a hot dog stand... and IT SHOWS.
