Lessig On Palin

More

Understanding the difference between performance ability and qualifications for the presidency. Well worth 12 minutes of your time. The Palin nomination is without historical precedent for her total lack of any salient qualifications as well as her refusal to engage the press in any meaningful way in a national election campaign. Truly surreal and utterly without precedent. Just listen to Lessig go through the history of the vice-presidents. Palin's candidacy is a national and global farce.
