Do you agree that if McCain wins, he doesnt have a VP?

If he wins do you think Palin is actually going to DO anything or advise anyone?

Obama would have a person to discuss things with and get real input from. Can Sarah palin actually HELP anyone in Washington or would she just sit there quietly?

Update:

Poyzin: Cheney WAS too powerful. He went beyond what a VP is supposed to do. I also dont want a VP that does nothing. I want a VP that does their damn job

    I Agree. And so do these conservatives:

    Peggy Noonan (Reagan speechwriter): "The most qualified? No. I think they went for this, excuse me, political bulls#*t about narratives. Every time the Republicans do that, because that's not where they live and that's not what they're good at, they blow it." http://news.spreadit.org/peggy-noonan-mike-murphy-...

    George Will: Famed conservative columnist George Will told a gathering of Senate aides on Monday that Gov. Sarah Palin is "obviously" not prepared to assume the presidency if necessary, two event attendees told the Huffington Post. ... Palin is "obviously not qualified to be President," he remarked, describing her interview on CBS Evening News with Katie Couric as a "disaster." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/30/george-wi...

    David Brooks: "Sarah Palin has many virtues. If you wanted someone to destroy a corrupt establishment, she’d be your woman. But the constructive act of governance is another matter. She has not been engaged in national issues, does not have a repertoire of historic patterns and, like President Bush, she seems to compensate for her lack of experience with brashness and excessive decisiveness." http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/16/opinion/16brooks...

    Charles Krauthammer: " ... Nonetheless, the choice of Palin remains deeply problematic. ... Palin is not ready. ... And worst, the paucity of any Palin record or expressed conviction on the major issues of our time. ... " http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/artic...

    David Frum (Bush Speechwriter): " ... Ms. Palin's experience in government makes Barack Obama look like George C. Marshall. ... Mr. McCain's supporters argue that he is more serious about national security than Barack Obama. But the selection of Sarah Palin invites the question: How serious can he be if he would place such a neophyte second in line to the presidency? Barack Obama at least balanced his inexperience with Mr. Biden's experience. What is Mr. McCain doing? ... " http://www.aei.org/include/pub_print.asp?pubID=285...

    Kathleen Parker: (National Review): "She’s out of her league." http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=MDZiMDhjYTU1N...

    Ross Douthat: "Sarah the Unready ... And there's no way to look at her performance as anything save supporting evidence for the non-hysterical critique of her candidacy - that it's just too much, too soon - and a splash of cold water for those of us with high hopes for her future on the national stage." http://rossdouthat.theatlantic.com/archives/2008/0...

    I'm sorry, but I disagree. I'm nowhere near a fan of Governor Sarah Palin (republican-Alaska), but I think that if Senator John McCain (republican-Arizona) is elected President, Gov. Palin can hold her own in Sen. McCain's absence. I'm for the democrats this election season all the way, but John McCain is a veteran of more than just the military; he's been in the United States Senate for awhile now, and I think he knows what he is doing.

    international warming is a hoax. Cap and commerce will triple our electric powered expenses and do not some thing. Obama's tax will do an similar ingredient with an similar result. If Gore replaced into extremely worried about international warming could he proceed to stay like a king and use extra power than maximum small cities?

    No because that old loser is going to lose! He is already almost been defeated beyond repair and once it happens, all those neocon evangelical nut jobs can go back and crawl into the hole they came out of.

    Well I don't think we have to worry about it because Obama will most likely be elected. However, IF McCain were to win, I think he would tell Palin, thanks but no thanks, and send her back to build that bridge to nowhere she kept the money for.

    If McCain wins, we don't have a President either...

    LaBellaDonna, are YOU crazy? One, Obama is a Christian. Even MCCAIN states that! Quit using the Bible if you haven't read it, and please get a brain...

    Obama IS the antichrist! The bible says itll be a Muslim. Obama is a black Muslim and is swaying Americans and has evil plans for it. But not all of us are fooled. Some of us know better, and will vote for McCain
