    That's the typical response from someone incapable of rational thought.

    Wasn't it John McCain who lost?

    Or do the American people vote for the vice-President?

    I think its a package deal. You don't vote for a president and then have him turn around and appoint a VP.

    That is why many were worried voting for someone as McCain as such an advanced age and then having Palin next in line.

    This is way too earlier in the election process, polls mean nothing. The same thing can be said about Obama's polling numbers. And you are right, she does have a lot of work to do, if she decides to run.

    They don't mean anything in the sense that you can't base who the most likely nominee is...but if 60% of people say that they'll NEVER vote for a candidate, that means quite a bit. Granted, people's minds can be changed...but that's an uphill battle, at the very least.

    Obama's negatives are nowhere near as high as Palin's. According to RCP, his average disapproval rating is 43.1%. That's not a bad place for a candidate to be in.

    I can't. This is important.

    So Joe Biden won the election?

    Do you have any evidence that John McCain lost the election because of Sarah Palin?

    Was Biden elected Vice President? I think you have your answer.

    As for evidence that Palin cost McCain the election, really no need to. The proof is in the pudding. Do you have any evidence that she didn't cost him the election.

    So that is evidence that she did??? You want me to prove a negative?

    Biden was selected as a running mate.

    Did he win the election?

    Sarah Palin has 100% zero chance of winning a presidential election. The democratic party is praying she will get the nomination so they can have a field day once again on the republican party. I dont think I have ever heard one intelligent idea come out of sarah palins mouth. Its always a populist remark, or pointing out a problem. The difference between a good candidate, and a bad one, is one will point out problems, the other will point out solutions. If the republican party has any brains left, which has proven to be very unlikely, there is no way they will rally the troops to support a palin presidential run. Go with who can win, like Romney or Paul. Palin will push away alot of lifetime republican voters. Die hard Palin supporters refuse to realize that yes, she does have support, but its a very small group of die-hard supporters. There is no chance in hell for this lady to win, and if she runs, she is assisting Obamas campaign.

    Also, the last sad fact is that she is a woman. I have NO problem with a woman running for president, but sadly many Americans do. There is a reason a woman has never been elected president, and a lady like Palin adds a much higher chance of failure on that already sad satistic. I would vote for a woman if I thought she was a good option for president, but Palin haunts my dreams with fears of this lady actually calling the shots in major global events.

    I am still waiting for Palin to declare some actual IDEAS and SOLUTIONS. So far all I have ever heard is Obama is doing this wrong, Obama is doing that wrong, America is in the ****ter, etc, etc, etc.... I need logical solutions. Palin has no credentials to run this country. If this lady actually gets the GOP nomination, this country really is becoming a nation of morons, and we are doomed.

    Your comment suggests that a VP candidate has no impact at all on who votes for a ticket? Is that what you believe?
