“Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin’s town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We’ve got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years,” Obama said.
“For Barack Obama to argue that he’s experienced enough to be president because he’s running for president is desperate circular logic and its laughable. It is a testament to Barack Obama’s inexperience and failing qualifications that he would stoop to passing off his candidacy as comparable to Governor Sarah Palin’s executive experience managing a budget of over $10 billion and more than 24,000 employees,” said spokesman Tucker Bounds.

Experience, experience, experience, lets see.... George W. Bush former governor.... arguibly the worst President in US history, Bill Clinton former governor...arguibly one of the best President in US history and I can go on and on... Kennedy came from the senate and manage to run this country in one of thr worst crisis in this country history.
The one thing all succesful Presidents have had is GOOD ADVISORS, see what Rove, Cheney and that crowd has done to this country. No one president can sit in a Oval Office and claim that he would now everything.
Thats where judgement comes into play, to have the judgement to surround yourself with smart people that would help a President make a right decision once all option are explored.
I take judgement over experience any day of the week.
