Can Palin be the Next Hillary Clinton?
Posted September 6, 2008on:
And that is the kind of theme the Obama campaign team is energizing at the moment. For the next 60 days, every American will hear from the Democratic side how a hockey mom who ruled the state of Alaska in only two years shouldn’t be the next Vice President of the United States.
Yes, Palin gave a pretty good speech at the Republican convention; something that most people hadn’t anticipated. But that doesn’t make her a great candidate. Yes it’s true Republican voters, especially women, are going crazy about her because she represents their values, but that doesn’t mean she can be the next Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton is different. She is a tested leader with a long-proven record. While Palin’s best performance is being the governor of a state with population of less than 700,000 people; in two years.
But the Republican crowd loves her. And for John McCain that’s the kind of thing he really needs at the moment. He’s been having a hard time getting the approval from the conservatives. Sarah Palin gives his campaign a new color. She’s been called an anti-corruption leader, she supports gun control, she says no to abbortion, and she has 5 children. When McCain said earlier today that Palin is the best running mate he could ever have, I bet he really meant it.
But, to compare Sarah Palin with Hillary Clinton is a big mistake. They are not the same; Hillary Clinton is simply much better. Period.
Picture is from here.
