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!

    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
