A lot of you who have brought up the experience comparison between Obama and Palin have overlooked one very important fact. Namely, that Obama garnered 18 million votes through 50 state primaries and was fully vetted by the voters. Whether he is qualified to lead the ticket or not has been decided by American voters. He could have been turned down by those voters.
Palin, on the other hand, has been appointed to the position of VP nominee by one man. She has not been through one national debate (and will only go through one), has not made one campaign stop and hasn't had one significant media interview. In fact, the only vetting she will receive will be by voters this November.
