Palin’s Problems

I honestly don’t care if Sarah Palin’s 17 year old daughter is pregnant.  I don’t particularly care whether she marries the baby’s father, or chooses to raise the child alone.  And I’m not disbuturbed that Palin’s husband got a DUI two decades ago, or that her first child was born 8 months after they married.

This is all of the “news” we’ve been hearing about Palin in the last couple of days.

I wasn’t at all familiar with Palin before McCain chose her, and so here’s what I’m interested in.  Does she have the knowledge and temperament to negotiate with leaders from around the world as we increasingly become part of the “global village”.  What does she want to do about the fact that a lot of entitlement programs (like social security) are going broke just at the point when a huge number of baby boomers are going to want to claim theirs. 

Those are just a couple of the important questions I think reporters need to be asking Palin, instead of when her daughter’s baby is due.

    I could not agree with you more! All I want to know is if she is the right person for the job! Thanks Jane!
