    None, and that plays in her favor. Washington hasn't corrupted her.

    Hasn't educated her either. What are you claiming qualifies her for high office?

    Duh!

    The fact that she's a "true American".

    What else qualifies one to be president?

    Re: Palin 'becoming Al Sharpton'?

    trying to figure this one out:

    ... The aim of the trip is to become acquainted with Israel ahead of an official visit she is planning in the coming months, Yediot said. ...
    [emphasis added by bubba]

    how is palin going to have an "official" trip to israel when she is in charge of nothing?

    i can see it now, bibbi to palin:
    alright, we will get you elected president, but just remember we run the show
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    It doesn't work that way, Barb. You need Washington corruption to get any significant movement. Real life is not Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

    It really upsets me when you have to bring logic, reason and reality into the conversation Fiddy, so inconvenient.

    Yeah, right now I do it with populist conservatives. A couple years ago, I had to "bring" some reality back in conversation to Obama base liberals. It is noble to think that you have to be free from corruption, but in all honesty, you need to work with the system to get results. Being adversarial can easily bring misery.

    Well, adversarial politics can produce positive results.

    But what's happened is, especially in regards to the republican party, is that their base has become very, well. Touchy might be the right word. When democrats are considered by some on the right to be the "enemy" and compromising with them on a piece of legislation is "collusion".

    I think that's where America had really started to fail. The two parties are so concerned with getting elected, being the heroes, that they've forgotten they're there to run a country. And that goes for both sides.

    Personally, I'd be embarrassed to call myself a democrat or a republican.

    This is an unbiased source. Some of her accomplishments are found to be mostly false, true, mostly true etc.
    No matter, she was still more qualified for high office than Obama. I expect you will list his accomplishments while in Congress, right?
