It's funny that so many women are pro-Palin because she's "like us" .... do we really want an average american running the country?
I'll so, no, I don't. Honestly. I count on my leaders to be more educated (or at least demonstrably smarter than me), more worldy and better traveled, more experienced, and to possess impeccable judgment.
I have to call out AnneMarie's non-facts here. Obama is not proposing changing any amendment. Where do you get this? Regarding gun control, he says:
We essentially have two realities, when it comes to guns, in this country. You've got the tradition of lawful gun ownership. It is very important for many Americans to be able to hunt, fish, take their kids out, teach them how to shoot. Then you've got the reality of 34 Chicago public school students who get shot down on the streets of Chicago. We can reconcile those two realities by making sure the Second Amendment is respected and that people are able to lawfully own guns, but that we also start cracking down on the kinds of abuses of firearms that we see on the streets.
GEE. SOUNDS LIKE GOOD JUDGMENT TO ME.
Also, as I posted on another board, moms everywhere should read this column in the NYT about McCain's disastrous plan to tax our health care benefits. Here's an excerpt and a link:
Has anyone bothered to notice the radical changes that John McCain and Sarah Palin are planning for the nation’s health insurance system?
These are changes that will set in motion nothing less than the dismantling of the employer-based coverage that protects most American families.
A study coming out Tuesday from scholars at Columbia, Harvard, Purdue and Michigan projects that 20 million Americans who have employment-based health insurance would lose it under the McCain plan.
