I was glad when Sarah Palin was first selected to be a VP candidate. I had only just heard of her and thought she was good VP material. President, no. But VP's don't frequently have to step into that role. The fact that it was nearly centigenarian McCain rather changed that calculation. But she seemed well, at least she was different.
Now she's not anymore, but she still thinks she can be president. I can see why Obama would convince just about anybody that they could be president. We could argue about which gaffe by which person reveals a profounder ignorance of what they should know to be president: Obama's 57 states versus Sarah's being able to see Russia (which she can't). But I think the GOP should hold out for somebody minimally qualified, which, God bless her, Sarah ain't. I suppose you could say Hillary Clinton is qualified -- it is more that what she thinks and what she would do are bad. Maybe she is actively unqualified, while Palin is passively unqualified. I don't know.
This is just so depressing.
