I would absolutely love to see a person in office, that can actually relate to the average middle class citizen. Someone who can look you in the eye
and say i know what your feeling, and know in your heart that they mean it, or have walked in those shoes before.
I personally think this is why she has the type of following that she does. She is trying real hard to be the voice of those that have no power or
influence to make there opinion heard.
BUT, as Grafilthy stated:

When you run for the highest office in the land.....you better be one of the most informed and intelligent.
Sadly enough most Americans don't understand the importance of the above comment.
I agree that connecting with the people is not a good enough qualification to assume the role of the office she is seeking.
What's even more sad, is in this day and age in politics it's impossible to achieve both.
So. The American people have to make a choice. Do we want someone in there that makes us feel good, or do we want someone in there that actually
knows what's going on?
And for the record I have no love for Obama or McCaine. However I do like Palin. But do I think she is qualified? No probably not.
