Experience Question

Frankly, I find the whole "experience" argument that Republicans have been pushing about Obama silly.

There is the obvious contradiction of complaining about Obama and then in the same breath praising Palin as a great executive ready to lead; it is just flat out ridiculous. But beyond the hypocrisy of the argument, it has no real merit.

Here is a link that breaks down the experience of past presidents.

The bottom line is this - Obama has appropriate experience and he offers the real opportunity for change. McCain's positions on the economy (he agrees with Bush's policies), Iraq (he is pushing to stay even though we are on our way out), Georgia (prepare for war against Russia if he is President), health care (health savings accounts over health care), Social Security (private savings accounts), etc. are at complete odds with Obama's policies.
