I watched the Palin / Biden debate last night. The newcomer versus the old pro. It was unremarkable.
The crux of the biscuit is that hiring Obama to head up the US military (one of the bigger obligations of holding the office, and perhaps THE biggest responsibility in the world) - well, you might as well just grab someone off the street - chances are the person you choose will have as much insight into military leadership as does Barack Obama.
Face it, people. If you hire Obama, you just may be politically...retarded.
