I mean, she's got absolutely NO qualifications. The McCain camp says she's qualified because her son's a soldier? C'mon...
True, she wasn't a community organizer like Barry Obama, but she is the only candidate with executive branch experience.
This has to be one of the most brilliant strategic picks McCain could have made.
1. Any criticism of Palin's lack of experience is going to be reflected right back onto Obama, and
2. Any claim Obama makes about being the candidate who represents change, or being the candidate who is from outside Washington is going to look silly
compared to McCain picking Palin.
With this pick, McCain picked up the female vote, the conservative vote, and the independent, "we're tired of politics as usual" vote.
And Obama used to own the word "change." Not anymore.
