Palin v. Obama on Experience
Posted by Ryan on September 1, 2008
Gerard Baker penned this quick comparison of Sarah Palin and Barack Obama. The contrasts could not be more clear and could not be more indicative that a Palin-type character is much more desirable in high office than an Obama-type politician.
Young and ambitious, Obama has followed a typical political corsus, yet rising much too fast to accumulate wisdom and take true responsibility for his political decisions without hiding behind or within the votes of others. Young and driven, Palin has worked in the private sector, the public sector, and has held local and state offices that force her to be where the “buck stops” on numerous issues, accelerating her wisdom and forcing her to take sole responsibility for her actions.
I know that this election is McCain v. Obama (which on experience isn’t even close), but if the Dems are going to whine about Palin’s lack of experience, then their own candidate needs to look in the mirror and do some thinking about whether or not the Dems really want to go there.
