Well, you quoted the wrong thing, but there's one word for Will Bower:
Does he truly and honestly think that Sarah Palin is as qualified as President-Elect D) Obama?
As far as actual experience, certainly.
Good luck trying to argue that. Experience doesn't mean as much as judgment.
Obama had over 20 times more constituents as a state senator than Palin did as Mayor. As Senator, he had nearly 19 times as many constituents as she did as Governor.
She is far more experienced in one area though.
Oh, not this argument again...
As for Obama being a Democratic Bush, I don't think the comparison is valid. First, Bush was not a "reactionary" candidate, rather he worked very hard to sell himself as a "compassionate conservative" or a softer, gentler version of the Republican mandate. However, the situation rapidly changed after 9/11 and Bush turned into GI Joe, while simultaneously trying to maintain some aspects of his previous "compassion" campaign.
I'd argue that P.U.M.A., rather than Obama voters, have bought into a cult-of-personality by continuing to insist that Clinton is a center candidate when both had fairly similar policies. To insist that McCain is better reflects that for P.U.M.A. policy is secondary to other concerns.
Honestly guys, we'll just have to wait and see what Obama does.
We really have no idea what he's like.
Well, people like you certainly do not, so it will definitely be a waiting game. The rest of us have had 2 or more years to get to know the candidate, and have been impressed enough to have a reasonable idea how he will govern, and are more concerned about the other variables and not outstanding questions about the man himself.
Bet that PUMA pity party was a real downer... Lot's of people crying in their beers no doubt. Well, maybe not lots. Tens of people crying in their beers.
