Obama's first response:
“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency. Governor Palin shares John McCain’s commitment to overturning Roe v. Wade, the agenda of Big Oil and continuing George Bush’s failed economic policies — that’s not the change we need, it’s just more of the same,” said Bill Burton, Obama Campaign Spokesman.
Team McCain "pushes back":
It is pretty audacious for the Obama campaign to say that Governor Palin is not qualified to be Vice President. She has a record of accomplishment that Senator Obama simply cannot match. Governor Palin has spent her time in office shaking up government in Alaska and actually achieving results — whether it’s taking on corruption, passing ethics reform or stopping wasteful spending and the ‘bridge to nowhere.’ Senator Obama has spent his time in office running for president.
Barack Obama has been in the United States Senate just over three and a half years. He was sworn in on January 4, 2005. In February, 2007, he announced his candidacy for the 2008 presidential election. Prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, Obama was a State Senator in Illinois, elected in 1996. Not forgetting, of course, he was a community organizer before that.
So according to Barack Obama, Sarah Palin is not qualified to be Vice-President. Apparently, however, judging by his own experience, she's qualified to be President.
