(CNN) – During Wednesday night’s presidential debate, Barack Obama ducked a question on whether or not he thought Sarah Palin is qualified to be president.
“That's going to be up to the American people,” Obama said. “I think that obviously she's capable politician. She has, I think, excited the base in the Republican Party and I think it's very commendable, the work she's done on behalf of special needs.”
Watch: McCain, Obama critique VPs
John McCain said he thinks Joe Biden, Obama’s running mate, is qualified to lead the country, but that he has been “wrong” on a variety of foreign policy issues. McCain said Biden voted against the first Gulf War and that he wanted to divide Iraq into three separate countries.
“There are several issues in which frankly Joe Biden and I openly and honestly disagree on national security policy,” McCain said. “And he's been wrong on the major ones.”
I wish someone could just tell me why McCain has a stupid look on his face. He keeps smiling like someone who does not know what is going on. You scare me John McCain you can lie better than anyone I know.
He wants to help women making a decision that he wants to take away her right to decide?...
He said she excited a BASIN in the republican party.
That RIght...Its up to me and I say Palin SUCKS big time and I'm offended by her presence in this campaign.
Obama is too nice to say the truth that WE ALL know.
Sarah Palin is unqualified.
Obama is cool and presidential. Not worth sullying himself by beating up the lady. McCain is ridiculous
I'm glad obama kept positive and didn't slam Palin quite frankly like she deserves to be. She is a complete mistake
If Sarah is quailified to lead this Nation so is Bevis and Butthead...
The people of America are already rejecting the mccain Palin ticket
Don't Forget To GET OUT AND PHYSICALLY VOTE....Your inaction could push our country into darkness!!!!
This topic does NOT, repeat does NOT belong in politics! This is an individual right and should not be interfered with!
Joe Biden is qualified to be President. Palin zero!
Dear Senator McNever read a History Book:
Persia and the entire gulf region was relatively stable
until the Brittish carved lines around the tribes and forced
them to live together. Biden's Idea to split Iraq into three
with joint oil revenue is the smartest solution, kind of when we
divided this country into states.
She IS NOT QUALIFIED.
Obama is doing great.
McCain looks pissed, LOSER!
God save us if Palin is our VP. God save us indeed!
Senator McCain looks like he should be propped up in a casket. Very ghoulish looking tonight. He's really making no sense with his arguments.
I agree. Palin is a role model, for the Bush League Justice system (ignore the report that found she violated ethics code).
Obama is taking the high road! Not throwing mud like McCain.
Palin has already been rejected by most Americans...and rightly so.
Both Obama and McCain voted for this bailout that's going to bankrupt the country!
