Was Steve Schmidt Qualified to Be McCains Campaign Manager?
by WHITNEY PITCHER
In a recent article at the National Review, John McCains failed 2008 campaign manager Steve Schmidt is quoted as saying it will be a very long time before questions about capability and preparedness are not a part of the process. The implication is that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was neither prepared nor capable to be vice president in the 2008 cycle, and that now hangs over the current vice presidential selection process.
In his comments about the VP selection process, Schmidt indicates a pretty simple concept-- capability and preparedness are characteristics that a presidential nominee would seek in his or her running mate. However, Schmidts comments indicate that the selection process and the entire campaign he was involved in during 2008 did not consider such factors, which leads one to ask, did Steve Schmidt have the capability and preparedness necessary to perform his role as campaign strategist?" In other words, let the vetting of Steve Schmidt begin.
The 42 year-old New Jersey natives campaign experience started with work for four failed state and national races during his mid to late twentiesranging from the Kentucky Attorney Generals race in 1995 to working as Communication Director for Lamar Alexanders 2000 presidential bid. He also managed failed Lt. Governor and Senatorial bids in California in 1998.

I think he was qualified but then again, I am a huge Steve Schmidt fan.
Palin was every bit as prepared as this whiney little narcissist we have in that job now; and Biden, Biden, don’t get me started on that gaffer. He tied up rush hour traffic in Nashville today like you wouldn’t believe.
Steve Schmidt still does not get it. If if had not been for Palin on the ticket, Obama would have won a landslide.
Steve Schmidt reminds me of Dan Rather who still not get it.
why would anyone hire Steve or whats-her-name ever again?
They proved to be leakers and whiners who will sandbag you at the first sign of trouble.
A question nobody is asking.
I looked up the word putz and Steve Schmidt’s picture popped up.
When Woody was interviewed for Men's Health magazine he was asked: "Do you have any sympathy for the republicans now that you've played one?"
Harrelson: "F**k, no! Those people make me weep".
IMO, Steve and Woody should get a room.
here he is cozying up the MSNBC crowd ....judge this guy for yourself.....
You are perhaps thinking of Phillies great Mike Schmidt?
Steve Schmidt is a POS! End of story.
You have freep mail.
You’re a what??????????????? Better get back to Dummie Underground! So to you, McLame was a GREAT candidate and Steve Schmidt was a wunderkind at getting him........................defeated???? Dumbest comment yet on FR.
LOL. Yes, as a matter of fact I was a huge fan of his too. But I just wrote SuzyQue. Boy do I look like an idiot. Think I am in unfriendly territory?...but Mike Schmidt was great.
Why thank you kindly.
The go back to DU thing is really old. And rude. Disagree all you want. There is no need to be rude. People have different opinions. I do not insult them.
