Boy I wish Molly Ivin's was still around.
Consider Hillary's first words about the selection of Palin for VP:
Statement from Sen. Hillary Clinton on Sen. McCain's VP selection
“We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate.”
I really have to wonder why we "should all be proud." It's not just Palin's policies that are wrong for the country--she's also completely unqualified to be Presdient.
Should we have been proud of the pick of Dan Quayle as pick for VP by Bush I? If you say "no" to that, then why would we be proud of Palin? It simply cannot be because she's an unqualifed woman.
See Gail Collins' on this last point: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/08/30/opinion/30collins-.html?ref=todayspaper
We need Molly Ivin's more than ever to comment on this one.
