Consider her qualifications.
Like Obama, she isn’t qualified to be the President of the most powerful nation on this planet. Having served as mayor of a small town and then briefly as Governor of Alaska, she lacks Federal legislative and executive experience in the brutal Washington political environment.
Moreover, she may not fully understand the enormous power struggles that go on in the Federal level and the difficult compromises that must be garnered, especially those that go against her principles.
Actually, Palin is more valuable to this country as a “cheerleader” for the Tea Party. She has a talent for motivating the base.
Finally, as a writer and an advocate at paid public appearances, she’s in a better place financially.
