It seems like Sarah Palin has alot of major family issues that need to be addressed. She may be qualified politically but how effective can she be right now. Im sure she will have loads of support to help her manage her personal affairs if elected, but I think her family, especially at this time, needs her to be hands on. I don't think she can do both.

Great choices for having the finger on the button. A mentally diminished old geezer with a bad temper and a Right wing religous nutbag with a temper and no experience in foreign affairs. They cry right to life and defend killing 300000 as justified by God. These 2 should have run for office in the 1800s. Also does Palin have land in Alaska with oil under it? There has to be a reason for her willingness to drag her family thru hell to run for this office. One thing for sure if McCain gets elected, she will be the first VP to be invited to the Oval office everyday, just so they can see what shes wearing.

Any person with a supporting family should run for office. Any person not in the hands of lobbyists and Beltway Insiders should run for office. Anyone not connected with our current, entrenched entitlement government should run.

Palin is coming. Libs beware!

PS Pelosi had five kids.
