With all due respect again to Governor Palin, she’s been a governor for less than two years, she’s been able but undistinguished. I don’t think people could really name a big, important thing that she’s done. She was mayor of the approximatley 3000th largest city in America. And again, with all due respect to Wasilla, Alaska, it’s smaller than Chatham; River Grove; Barrington or Lyons; Sauk Village or Worth. It’s not a big town. So if he were to pick Governor Palin, it would be an intensely political choice where he said, `You know what? I’m really not, first and foremost, concerned with, is this person capable of being president of the United States?
