Poor Katie! She tried and tried, didn't she? But that Sarah... Before she opened her mouth I thought she was simply under qualified, albeit pretty. Now, after hearing how Putin flying over Alaska airspace gives her foreign policy experience, and this "So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions, and tax relief for Americans, and trade we have got to see trade as opportunity, not as, uh, competitive, um, scary thing, but one in five jobs created in the trade sector today." -- I've changed my mind.
