Will Palin stand in for McCain?

One of the jobs of the Vice President is to stand in for the President when he is unable to perform the duties of his office. It would make perfect sense for the Vice Presidential Candidate to stand in for the Presidential Candidate when he is unable to perform the duties of Presidential Candidate.

Palin should go and debate Obama while McCain is off being the apolitical leader he is in Washington.

This makes perfect sense...after all Palin is just as experienced as Obama and this will be a well-matched debate on the issues. And, after all, many of us think that Palin will be a better president than McCain when she gets the chance.

What is most interesting about this idea is that it was allegedly first proposed in comments at NRO.

What say you

It is a good idea. My bet is that Palin would do just fine and by holding her own would deal a blow to the Obama campaign.

It would be interesting watching Obama the neophyte looking down his nose at Palin.

Obama wouldn't debate her. He'd call the stunt out for what it was.

@Cycloptichorn,
Finn, Have you ever listened to a know it all have a debate with a doctor or surgeon? How about an accountant, professor, lawyer, or a nurse?

Who would you believe knows more?

@cicerone imposter,
Not sure what your point is, unless you are suggesting Obama fits the category of a professional.

Naw..can't be.

The point is that Palin is in way over her head; she's trying to perform surgery without any training in it.

So, like the other board liberals, you're not really too interested in discussing the actual campaign issues, competition of plans, etc.

Brandon, Do you understand why McCain has been creating so many diversions from the issues of our day?

@cicerone imposter,
Absolutely: unable to win in any issue based conversation, most liberals simply mock or make unquantifiable character attacks.

This from the guy who intentionally called Obama 'Osama' the other day? Disgusting hypocrisy.

Palin is being coached by Mark Wallace, Bush's deputy campaign manager in 2004 and Tucker Eskew, a Republican strategist at the forefront of Bush's primary battle in 2002 against Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the current Republican presidential nominee.

Perhaps Senator McCain's mother should debate Michelle Obama's mother (Mrs. Robinson).

I heard Mrs. Robinson read on TV the other day. Sounds like she's a product of Chicago's Public Schools. Shocked

@cicerone imposter,
Now explain to us the professional training Obama has had.

Running for president?

Sure Palin is inexperienced in terms of national politics, but somehow you and your fellows would argue that Obama is.

If you want to argue that both are inexperienced and Obama is the better bet, at least that's an honest argument, but you don't, you want to argue that Palin is an inexperienced neophyte while Obama is ready, this very minute, to take on the presidency.

@Finn dAbuzz,
It's not what people with concern look at about our potential president. It has to do with many things including, but not limited to, intelligence, care for people, good decision maker, listens to different ideas before making a decision, doesn't jump head first into any important issue, has good character, doesn't insult the intelligence of his listeners, and doesn't talk in condescending ways to his opponent during a presidential debate, but is willing to agree to his opponents opinions when deserved.

This, coming from a guy who has been relentless in defending the gross incompetence of the last 8 years, an incompetence that the world is not likely to see again unless McCain and his tactical pick were to be elected.

You've managed to sneak both hypocrisy and irony into one posting.

@Finn dAbuzz,
My argument is that Palin is in way over her head. She doesn't have the knowledge or understanding of issues to get through a Katie Couric interview.

She is uniquely unqualified.

Forget the debates or being a heart beat away from the presidency. I've tried several times to just imagine her leading the Senate.

I just can't mentally even get her there holding the gavel, let alone debating Obama.
