    Moderator's Warning:
    Would Sarah Palin be a better president than Obama?[W:81]As interesting as all of you might find each other to be, the topic of the thread is about Palin, not each other. If you think you are unable to stop discussing each other, then please get out of the thread before a mod does you the service instead.

    The problem is, a bowl of wax fruit would also be a better president than Palin.

    I already said that in post #54 and #78, but thanks for replying anyway.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    If I'm to be honest, there are damned few qualified individuals who would be a worse president than Obama. Palin is definitely one of them. *shudder*

    I agree with this. If he'd just kept his mouth under control, he wouldn't have been burned to an irredeemable cinder with the "I knew JFK, JKF was a friend of mine, and you, sir, are no JKF."

    That's from memory, too lazy to Google, but in my opinion he lost the nomination right then and there.

    actually Quayle never ran IIRC for president. that was during the VP debate with Bentsen (sp)



    BTW I had a friend who was a big liberal-now a prominent law professor who clerked for A.J. Blackmun. She spent summer working for a liberal senator. She told me that if she ever needed something it was Quayle she talked to. She said he was always among the best prepared senators on any bill or issue and while she disagreed with him on issues like abortion and gun rights, she said the attacks on him were based on lies.

    I stand corrected; however, I firmly believe that incident cremated his political career... forever.

    Interesting.
    what killed Quayle was being on the losing ticket in 92. If Bush I had won re-election, then Quayle would have been the front runner in 96. Of course in some cases, the VP who loses one year has come back and run on the top of the ticket next time out: Mondale being the most prominent example in recent history.

    A lot can happen in four years, but that tidbit would have haunted him to his political grave. I voted for Bush/Quayle in '92 btw... I was, like, Clinton who??? ... I really liked and respected Bush Sr. The juniors... not so much.
