    Being a conservative, I will always prefer a conservative in the White House.

    It is a no-brainer to know that Palin, with vastly more experience in similar positions, will be more competent than Obama.

    But, for me, it's the character of the politician that really matters. Even if I disagree with a politician, they will have my respect if they are honest.

    Sadly since I'm a woman and lean conservative the answer is still no, she would not be better on any level. As others have mentioned she is bat **** insane on this level.
    I shutter at the idea that her and women like Michele Bachmann are labeled as conservative women on a media and stereotypical level. Don't get me wrong I understand that smart people don't judge groups by one part but unfortunately many people do let stereotypes over take them. Those two are stereotypes I'd never want to be associated with. Sara is probably a ok person, I like her in certain ways, she has the ability to appeal to people and rally them but a president she is not. My grandfather had this saying, something about how most people are one position to high in life and or at work. Meaning like person A was an AWESOME shift supervisor so they were naturally promoted but at the facility supervisor level they couldn't cut, they probably should have just stayed shift supervisor. I think that's what Palin is, she was a news caster and a personality that appealed locally. Then she got involved in politics and was a mayor, she had success with that size of city and even was elected to President of the state conference. Next was governor, this was probably the one position too high for her IMO but who am I. Any national position is way out of her reach. She simply needs to stay at the state, county, city level where her diarrhea of the mouth isn't that big of a deal.

    No.She would quit her term because the media said mean things about her or because she wanted a book deal and tv spots. Plus if her term of governor of Alaska is any indicator she would have no problem appointing liberals to the supreme court, much like she did at the state despite saying she is pro-life she appointed an abortionist to the Alaska supreme court.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Nope. She's an idiot. He's an idiot. One idiot isn't better than another idiot.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    nothing needs explained, whether a person likes obama or not the answer is obvious

    there are two parts to that question that many miss

    if you are a pro freedom voter who opposes socialism-an INCOMPETENT do nothing left-winger is going to be better than an efficient effective socialist. and a mediocre conservative is going to be better than any sort of lefty

    I don't think Palin is as smart as Obama. I don't think she is as well spoken. But I think if she were president we would be better off in the sense we would have had another Alito on the USSC rather than Kagan. we'd have far more conservative judges on lower courts. we wouldn't have executive orders that impose leftwing nonsense

    so looking at the impact on America, I'd say yes

    so you think after 8 years of Obama you'd like what exists vs Palin

    better judges under Obama

    better administration of all the bureaucracies like ATF and IRS

    better executive orders

    I used to kinda think so.

    But not so much anymore.

    interesting
    I'm sure a Quayle administration would have been interesting also.
    As long as GOPs are now throwing Palin under the bus, I wonder why Bush-41's VP has escaped this ridicule.
    Oh yeah, he disappeared from the Public .
