The biggest talking point you’ll hear from the Dems re: Palin is “There goes the Obama is inexperienced argument!!! ” Perhaps. Except, the Dems “inexperienced” candidate is at the top of the ticket. Where does the American voter want the experience more? In the President, or the V.P.?
And you know what’s ticking them off? McCain picked a woman and Obama didn’t. Demographic-obsessed Dems are worried, don’t let ’em fool you. Of course, the reality is that Palin’s political ideology isn’t exactly appealing to the average PUMA out there.
Nonetheless, she’ll appeal to a lot of Mom’s out there. She’s a working mother with five kids (one son headed to Iraq, four kids at home including a newborn with Down’s syndrome) and has a blue-collar husband whose worked in the oil fields and as a fisherman. Of the four people on the respective tickets, she’s probably the most down-to-earth. And she’s got the most executive experience of them all.
