I'm listening to Tim Pawlenty trying not to sound sore he wasn't picked. When Tom Brokaw asks him about Palin's experience, he points out that Barack has about the same amount and that Palin's experience is Executive (TM). Experience is the wrong question. As the man said, it's not about experience, it's about judgement.
When Barack Obama was a state senator (district size 30x larger than Wasila, AK, 1/3 the size of Alaska) he opposed the Iraq war, predicting we would be bogged down and distracted from the real war against the people the attacked us.
