Who would you hire?



This seems like such a practical, logical way to choose a president and vice-president that I hate to post it.  Why should we make this presidential decision easy?

My father always said it was easy to learn with the good teachers.  One had to really work with the bad ones.  I guess that is why we are even looking at a debate at all.   Maybe we like to suffer.  It is important to note that even though the resumes are far, far apart in content that McCain got into the naval academy because of his family connections and Barack made his way without mentioning he was Black.  One might note then a difference in character to go with the difference in quality and quantity of education.

I think the worst ignorance is the ignorance not even known.  That is what frightens me about Palin.  She doesn't even know there is a difference between standing on an island looking over at Russia and actually knowing how to deal with the diverse political realm it is, with the diversity there as well as here.  There is more to Russia that what borders the Bering Strait.  There is more to this country than oil.

If virtue and hard work truly are rewarded, then I think who wins this election is clear.
