To the Editor:
Barack Obama has run a carefully crafted campaign over the past four years. Since the media chose him as their candidate at the 2004 Democratic Convention. Obama, during all this time since, has avoided any controversial issues, and while in the Senate, chose to vote present most of the time rather than let anyone know who he is, what he stands for, and what his qualifications are to hold the highest office. Barack Obama is inspiring, but he is without substance or qualification at this time.
John McCain, on the other hand, is all about substance and qualifications. He is a proven reformer taking on his own party many times. However, he is not inspiring.
Sarah Palin is the breakout candidate. Like Barack Obama she is an inspiring person, and like John McCain, she is a reformer. She took on the incumbent Governor of her own party and won. Winning against an incumbent of the opposing party would be impressive enough.
She is a skilled speaker and proven to be knowledgeable about the issues. When I saw her debate Joe Biden, who is perhaps the best debater in Washington who relied solely on his talking points acquired over a vast thirty year Washington career, and his acting ability, I thought to myself, what kind of mental acuity does this woman possess, who with only a few weeks preparation time, can not only hold her own, but actually beat him a little.
Sarah Palin is the break out candidate of this generation. There is no other candidate in politics today that is armed with the substance she has and who, at the same time, can inspire the way she does. Sarah Palin is the only person, who if given this opportunity to serve as VP, can in time take on the civil war between the two parties and unite this country; not under the red flag or the blue flag but under the red, white and blue flag.
We need Sarah Palin for such a time as this.
