I am a conservative republican that voted for Bush twice, and support McCain for president this November. And I am willing to admit, that Palin is probably not completely ready to take over as president right now, or probably befor 2010. But there are some reasons why I am voting for McCain anyway: #1) I think it is fair to say, that no matter who you are, whether you are a far right conservative or a far left liberal, that we can all agree at least that Obama is of similar experience level as Palin. Even if you want to sit here and argue all day about how Obama has more experience or more relavent experience, nobody in their right mind would say that he is 'a lot more' experienced. That being said, Obama is required and expected to execute the office of the head honch, the big cheese, the number one guy on day one if elected. And if you are going to sit here and expect me to go ahead and vote for an inexperienced guy for THE President spot, because the other guy has a VP that isn't experienced, you must have lost your entire mind!!!! What kind of lunacy is that? If I'm to vote for the experienced guy over the inexperienced guy, then a McCain vote is a NO BRAINER. #2) I believe that the odds of Palin needing to take over as president before she is ready (2010 maybe?) are are low enough that the risk of voting for the other inexperienced guy far outweighs the risk of electing the experienced guy with the inexperienced back-up. Like Biden says: "The office of the presidency does not lend itself to on the job training." I agree with this statement 100% and it is my humble opinion that the position of VICE president DOES lend itself to on the job training. So keep on screaming about inexperience Democrats, because it plays right into our hands.
