If Obama has enough experience to be President, both Palen and Jindal have enough experience.

Point is - Obama DOESN'T have enough experience - and should he live to be a hundred, he still won't.

Palin and Jindal, however, could well mature in experience and be ready in another election cycle or two - but not yet.

Experienced enough now to be VP, maybe, but not POTUS - which is what must be considered.

I think I agree with you.

Obama is unqualified to be president by reason of inexperience. Jindal and Palin each have at least as much experience as Obama, and have some executive experience which Obama lacks entirely, but neither of them have enough to be president either. If the choice is between an inexperienced candidate for president versus an inexperienced candidate for vice president, the decision is obvious.

The inexperience of Obama manifests itself continually in his gaffes when speaking without a script. The man is simply incapable of tip-toeing through the minefield that is foreign policy, where we simultaneously must work with less than perfect regimes while advoctaing for democratic reforms; and, where we are both the only superpower in the world and must seek to involve other, lesser powers in diplomacy.

Obama obviously appeals to the utopian element in the Democratic Party, but the majority of the American people will see him as the empty suit that he is.

Having said this, I must, in fairness, point out that the neocons in the Bush Administration were/may continue to be simplistic in their analysis of foreign affairs.
