    GIve me a break.

    HEr executive expreince rest on her party conrtolling the state. IT less than two years and itsnot like she has done much to beneift the rest of the country. She is a flipflopper herself. Its shear hypocrisy. Let's yeall 9/11 or terrorism enough that people will ignore the last 8 years. IF they are so proud why dont they run on Bush's record.. on yeah.. he doesnt have a stellar one.

    WHEN I LIVED IN THE STATE OF HAWAII GOVERNOR GUIATANO WAS GOVERNOR. HE WAS A DEMOCRAT AND DID MANY THINGS FOR HAWAII. LINDA LINGLE WAS THE FIRST REPUBLICAN GOVERNOR OF HAWAII AND HAS DONE NOTHING FOR THE STATE. ALL SHE DID WAS FLY AROUND THE WORLD. SHE IS ABOUT AS USELESS AS USELESS CAN BE. ASK ANY PERSON IN HAWAII AND THEY WILL TELL YOU THE SAME THING. OBAMA 2008

    neither does McCain. He hasn't shown up to the senate to vote on any bill since april. He also has no execuetive experience. McCain's experience led us to Iraq and the economy down the tubes. He has not judgement. that is important. The obama bashing by the gop has to stop. tell us what you are going to do with the country.

    When is someone at CNN going to point out that GWB was governor of the huge state of Texas for 5 years. How did all that "executive experience" work out for him?

    McCain has no executive experience.

    I think it is curious that Republicans keep saying that Senator Obama has no executive experience, but some how they think McCain does. He has never been a governor only an legislator. Does being in Congress over a certain number of years mean one automatically can say they have executive experience.

    Americans will not be fooled this time around. We are looking for a candidate who can lead, inspire and has good judgment. Senator McCain has shown us by his first act of selecting Palin as his running mate he lacks any of these traits. On the other hand, Senator Obama possess all of these traits and will serve us much better than we have been served over the previous 8 years.

  10. Really?

    To be fair, McCain has zero executive experience as well. Using this argument, are Republicans really trying to convince us that Palin is the most qualified of all the candidates running for executive office? It defies logic and is really pathetic.

    How much executive experience did GW have before becoming President? And what about Dick Cheney? How much so-called executive experience does John McCain himself have. This job requires Judgement. You can have all the experience you want. If you don't have the judgement to make the right decisions, what does the experience matter?

    They are all–each and every last one–a group of God-forsaken, condesending, sight-challenged–I take that back: concern-challenged, group of politicians I have ever heard. Sure Obama let McCain, but he sounded like a reasonable human being doing it.

    Rudy, for example, sounds like he's trying to insite(sp?) a riot.

    McCain can only take us further into the abyss...no question. With Obama, at least there's the possibility of improvement.

    Poor. poor Repubs....when you lack leadership, all you can do is pitifully cut & attack the opposition.

    To them I shall not bid God's speed, fo they, too, shall receive of his judgement.

    God help US if they win.

  16. We need Obama Biden!

    If executive experience is the critirium, then don't John McCain and Barack Obama have the same amount of experience since neither of them have any executive experience in government?
