When it comes to the experience issue, compare Palin to Barack Obama. Palin has served in office longer than Obama has and has had more executive experience than Obama, Joe Biden and John McCain.
Palin served on the Wasilla, Alaska City Council from 1992 to 1996. She then was elected Mayor and served until 2002. She was then appointed to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and elected Governor in 2006.
On the other hand Obama was elected to the Illinois State Senate in 1997. During his time in the State Senate, the Democratic Presidential nominee voted "present" 130 times, not voting for or against a number of controversial measures.
In her time in office, Palin has balanced budget, delivered services, overseen law enforcement and commanded the Alaska National Guard.
Don't think Barack has done any of that.
