Well, they'll try. With Obama being so weak on experience, it'll be tough for them to successfully attack Palin on that issue. Right now, the Democrats even seem scared of her.

I was actually impressed with her courage at the announcement to talk so candidly about how Hillary had essentially opened the door for her. She knows EXACTLY why she's got the nod and she will astutely use that to the party's advantage.

Dick Morris made a good observation the other night: (paraphrasing) "There's a big difference between running for student and running for teacher." If elected, an inexperienced person at the bottom of the ticket can learn from the President while serving as V.P., but having an inexperienced person at the top of the ticket means that the President will have to learn the job on the fly.

Every President says that there's no qualification to being President other than being President. The job is unique unto itself. In the end, it's all about the team that you assemble around you (just like any leadership position). Like him or hate him, Dubya's "mistake" was surrounding himself with the wrong team (Rove, Cheney, Libby, oh the list goes on and on) and allowing them to run away from shared decision making into petty politics. Look at the Iraq war. It was essentially started because of a rift between the CIA and the Defense Department.

If Obama had experience showing that he can assemble a roster that is both depthful in understanding of the issues and capable of executing on very difficult plans, then I'd be all for it. But he hasn't and my suspicion is that he won't be able to if he's elected. The system doesn't want to be corrected. It's servicing the wealthiest just fine thank you very much.
