Some people who are thrilled to have a woman on the ticket are a little worried about Sarah Palin. Not because she doesn’t believe in manmade global warming or because she doesn’t go for this whole evolution thing, but because of her limited experience in foreign policy. However, that really really shouldn’t be a problem. According to McCain adviser Charlie Black, “”She’s going to learn national security at the foot of the master for the next four years, and most doctors think that he’ll be around at least that long.”
Presumably, McCain will be like Obi Wan Kenobi to Palin’s Luke Skywalker. When McCain thinks she is ready he’ll stop trying to keep such a tight control on his temper or something and pass on leaving Palin a clear path to be President. Until then Palin will basically be a paid intern learning how to govern at the foot of McCain. Remember, if you take over the Presidency because of succession it doesn’t count against your two terms. By the time this is all said and done Palin could have a 15 year Presidency. I really love the idea of a 23 year Republican White House.
