That's about the only thing that I didn't know about Bristol Palin's pregnancy. The rest of the details I picked up almost without trying, while talking about other things with townsfolk — some who know the governor and her family well, some who don't. It was, more or less, an open secret. And everyone was saying the same thing: the governor's 17-year-old daughter is pregnant, the father is her boyfriend, and it's really nobody's business beyond that.

Obama supporters pointing out the hypocrisy of McCain choosing an inexperienced candidate for VP is also hypocrisy in itself for being supportive of a Presidential candidate who is also inexperienced.
An inexperienced calling out the inexperience of an inexperienced is hypocrisy is it not?
The big difference is Obama is going for #1 position while Palin is a #2. The importance of the experience of a person seeking the highest office is still greater than the person who is a heartbeat away.

So let me get this straight. Both of them don't have a lot of experience, but we;re supposed to vote for the one that's ACTUALLY going to be president?
I really don't see how this helps your argument for Obama.
If anything it shows the hypocrisy of democrats and Obama supporters. Suddenly, you care about experience, when before you all argued that experience was actually a bad thing!
Also, you left out commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard.
But, in an interview with The Associated Press on Sunday, he said he and Palin play no role in national defense activities, even when they involve the Alaska National Guard. The entire operation is under federal control, and the governor is not briefed on situations.
Isnt it obvious? I am using the very arguement you all having been making over the past few months, I never justified experience as being the only reason to become POTUS, you guys did, and now with mccain and his flip flop, im making a point with your arguement.
No, I am making experience a big deal because it was the righties that have been making it a big deal for weeks now, so now they elect somebody with half the experience Obama has

That kind of blows the "inexperienced Obama" argument out of the water, doesn't it?
