Jury's still out for me. Just because she's a woman, doesn't mean I will automatically jump on that bandwagon.

I agree with you on that, I can say I probably wouldnt have voted for Hillary but this lady I like. She is all people men and women are talking about here.

I caught less than the last half of her speech. I was very impressed. Things that come out of her mouth don't sound like political sound bites. Agree or not, she can make her point clearly. Her speech abilities made me think, "That's how Bill got elected."

Please do not compare her to Bill. I love that he picked a woman to have as a running mate but I do not want a 44 year old anyone with relatively no political experience to be my president if Johnny boy kicks the bucket. I believe the whole situation with her daughter proves how two faced the religous right is. What is the almighty James Dobson going to say about this?

As someone closely familiar with the religious right due to my upbringing, they do not live in the real world. Fortunately, the last time I checked, the "almighty James Dobson" was not running for office. As someone who has generally voted Republican, I find it refreshing to have a nominee who seems to at least understand that. He has to court their votes to get elected, just like Barack has to court traditionally Democratic voters.

My question is this - why is everyone so concerned with specifically political experience? Leadership is leadership in my opinion, and either you can do it or you can't. She has as more credible, usable experience than Barack (executive vs. legislative) and if you elect him you are guaranteed to get someone who has never spent a second in that type of job. If you're basing a decision on political experience there is currently one option - McCain.

I was watching Cnn this am and they were talking about her and here is what they had to say. Someone wrote her a very good speach. The top 2 republicans stated they thought the Mccain made the biggest mistake ever picking her for his VP. Not my words but the republicans.

The same said about Obama. He makes a great speach but he's not saying anything, is whats being said about him. Neither really have any experience but people just dont like change they are afraid to have a woman as VP. He and his wife has put down America for years now they want to take it back. I wasnt sure about a woman in office either but I [PoorWordUsage] sure not going to vote for someone like Obama

How is this proving how two faced the religious right is? I don't care who it is, there is no family without problems. At least they are not hiding it, or blaming anyone else for it. Her daughter made a poor decision, and they are dealing with it. Much like other families would.

If you look at the history of the Presidency, there are more warts than roses.

To argue politics is futile. Politics and religion are two subjects that very few will change their minds on...it is futile....

Well said DeeDee. I like her from what I have seen so far. As far as experience and age, how much does BHO have? Not as much as her and how old is BHO? Isn't he around the same age?

Sorry people, but this sounds like the outdoors political forum, not the informational, chiding Women's forum that we are used to...

On a side note, all the ladies that will talk to me at work, are not in favor of Sarah.

I knew it was over there, but this is and the photography forums are really the only ones I know how to get to and I was wondering what opinion the ladies here had about Palin.

I don't go into to Outdoor Discussion's board either DeeDee. I'm not very well versed in the art of Political Bantering and Discussion. People get very defensive. Sometimes I don't blame them!! It's hard to discuss such touchy subjects when you can't be face to face with the person and see reactions, facial expressions and their passion for what they believe. It's easy to bash someone knowing you'll never have to face them in the real world too.

It'll be interesting to see how Caribou Barbie handles some interviews and one on one debates. Interesting indeed.

Something that has taken precedence for me is Palin’s religious beliefs!

Is it Gods will/plan that we are in Iraq? Should we pray for a $30,000,000,000.00 gas line to be built while in church? Should I believe in someone who speaks in tongue during church services? Pentecostal beliefs and since being VP, them being played down?

Sarah Palin believes all of the above.

I am for religion being part of a politicians life, but should it be dictating their decisions while in the White House? Pres or VP?

I respect all religious beliefs, but on the same hand I respect in a small way (on a constitutional level) the beliefs of the Black Panthers, KKK and other extreme groups, but do I want their extreme beliefs being in the White House, NO!

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
