    she's trying to highlight that she has more executive experience and that community organizers don't make many executive decisions

    ppl's reactions to the content of what she said will no doubt be dependent on which way they lean, but I think it's delusional to think she didn't pass the test of "connecting" with average americans; again, we underestimate her at our own peril

    •  huh? (0+ / 0-)

      Last night is the first that I heard this person deliver a speech.  And rather than introduce herself, she tried to burnish her bona fides by denigrating someone who is head and shoulders above her.

      She came off as nasty, narrow-minded, willing to lie, and hypocritical.  Not sure if this is "underestimating her."  This is my impression of this woman.  Not a decent bone in her body.

      •  do you think (0+ / 0-)

        you might be exaggerating a little?

        "Not a decent bone in her body"?  

        comments like that make one see "nasty, narrow-minded"....

        there is no question BO is accomplished, charismatic (which is what you'd want in a leader) and has inspiring views on how to bring change, but when I try to see things from the other side I realize that GOPers might also think the same of Palin

        rather than trying to beat them by chopping Palin down (who seems to be someone the avg american can relate to whether we like it or not) we should be focusing our attacks on McCain and why BO is a better choice for POTUS

        •  I'm giving my impressions (0+ / 0-)

          I found several parts of her speech hateful and indecent.  Particularly targeting someone who graciously stated "hands off" of her shitload of baggage.  I'm allowed to give my impressions of the GOP's VP nominee and those are my impressions.
