    If after Obama is president and his family gets in a brawl, that wouldn't cause much of a stir, right? Sort of like when Zimmerman pulled a shotgun on his girlfriend and everyone said "told ya".

She said leaving office is in the best interest of the state and will allow her to more effectively advocate for issues of importance to her, including energy independence and national security. Sarah Palin to Resign as Alaska Governor, Citing Probes and Family Needs

    I haven't walked a mile in her shoes, but I'm not sure I could bear the personal attacks. I mean, only hours after she was nominated for the Vice Presidency, the vicious rumors that her baby was actually her grandchild began. She was criticized for bringing the baby on the campaign trail. What else was she supposed to do when she was breastfeeding? The David Letterman attack on her 14-year old (although Letterman was referring to the "slut-daughter" Bristol)--sorry, baseball joke--was ugly. Really, the worst for me was the 3rd-birthday "tribute" to that little boy, who has Down Syndrome--saying that he was the smartest member of his family and all that.

    I wish the media would lay off people's families, especially their kids. The retarded kid stuff is indefensible. I'm not sure I could handle it. And although I don't know that I would ever vote for Sarah Palin, I really hate the way she is treated. I don't understand the frothing-at-the-mouth malice others have for this woman. Look how long this thread is about someone who is pretty much irrelevant in American politics at the moment. It's ridiculous.
    She might not be politically relevant now, but she was very recently, and could possibly be again. As far as her children, I think children should be off-limits anyway, no matter whose children they are. As much as I hate Bush, I, too, think his kids should be off-limits - until they become adults and start acting like idiots in the public eye.

    As far as withering criticism and occasional mockery, well them's the breaks when you run for office. She couldn't possibly believe that she was going to be escorted into the White House just because she was perky and cute, did she? It's not just gonna lift up it's skirt and pull it's panties down for you. Everybody gets vetted when they go into politics. Maybe perky and cute was enough for the voters in Alaska, but it's not enough for America as a whole. Candidates are vetted, and vetted very deeply. Surely she knew this. Surely. This can't be a surprise to her.

    Is she Governor now? Is she running for VP now? No.

    If Obama and his family got into a brawl, it would be huge news. He is the President of the United States.

    Zimmerman - I assume you mean George - isn't President of the United States and never held a public office. Not sure what he has to do with this discussion.

    Wait - she used her special needs kid as a "political prop"?

    You do know in this day and age we don't lock away our special needs children and hide them from the public because they embarrass us. That practice went out right after Joe & Rose Kennedy did that to their child.

Thanks for proving my point. Barack Obama - biggest success story in the history of Affirmative Action.
    I explained why I mentioned McCain being 72..... it was relevant only that it makes the VP a little closer to the office. A 72 year old man is far more likely . to die in the ensuring 8 years than a younger man, making the VP more likely to finish out the term that one serving a 50 year man. Its relevant only in stating how close Palin would be to the Presidency; not in any suggesting that McCain was too old to serve. That was your wrapped conclusion.

    Obama and Cruz are each rising stars in their respective parties. Obama, in particular, is an exceptionally eloquent speaker. He gets to speak because of each of those attributes. In fact, each of these men, whether you like their politics or not, are particularly charismatic and have key constituencies within their respective parties. They should be speaking. I am not certain why you are trying to make a race thing here. It only serves to trivialize the accomplishments of these men.

    Moreover, we have wondered far away from the point as this has NOTHING to do with whether Palin was a beneficiary of affirmative action. Deflection is but a tactic to hide a weak argument that she is not.

    If a 72 year old is close to dying, then that makes Hillary a liability. You said it, I didn't.

    Affirmative Action isn't just about race. It's about gender too. Your claim that Palin was the biggest beneficiary of Affirmative Action is a false claim. Obama would be a bigger beneficiary. He has a job. She doesn't. Getting "picked" for something you don't achieve isn't a benefit.

    Cruz was selected so the GOP could appeal to Hispanics. Political reality. It isn't my fault that your partisanship doesn't allow you to acknowledge that the Dems wanted to target the black and progressive votes.

    Yet in February 2017, no one would pay attention if Obama and his family got into a drunken fistfight?

    Who do you think you're trying to convince here?
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.
