Obama Takes On Palin

Obama: "Well, my understanding is that Governor Palin's town of Wasilla has, I think, 50 employees. We've got 2,500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe $12 million a year. You know, we have a budget of about three times that just for the month. So I think that our ability to manage large systems and to execute I think has been made clear over the last couple of years."

McCain campaign: "For Barack Obama to argue that he's experienced enough to be president because he's running for president is desperate circular logic and it's laughable. It is a testament to Barack Obama's inexperience and failing qualifications that he would stoop to passing off his candidacy as comparable to Governor Sarah Palin's executive experience managing a budget of over $10 billion and more than 24,000 employees."

Also, Obama doesn't seem to realize that Palin is no longer the mayor of Wasilla, but is now the Governor of Alaska, or that he is running against John McCain, not Palin for president.

I do like the sound of that. Is it too late to put her on top of the ticket?
