yes, I had to crack up when he said Palin didn't have the experience to step into the job of President but Biden does..If Palin doesn't have the experience to be understudy, ...how can he think Obama has the experience to be the star?
It will be interesting to see what job he is handed in the Obama admin.
I normally really dislike Buchanon and disagree with much of what he has said. However, I have to admit, the following link about politics and shifting positions ..and Obama and a supermajority Democrat house..is interesting.

I know you still have a black and white TV from the '60s, but let me explain:
There is this thing called "cable TV". With it, you can actually get more than just 13 channels . And amongst those extra channels there is something called "The Daily Show", along with "The Colbert Report", both of which blows the radio blowhard you love so much away. Plus those shows are funny and entertaining, as opposed to Mr. Blowhard's radio show, where he's just screaming mad about anything and everything EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Just wanted you to know - there ARE fun alternatives out there, even for old cranky-pants like you. As Mikey from the Life ceral commericals used to say, "Try it, you'll like it."

The groundlings have always been easy to amuse, the judicious prefer an interactive medium. My 24" [diagonal] monitor and my 64 bit machine running Vista Ultimate are my geriatric pap.
After Ben Stein's Money and The Man Show folded, and Jeopardy became too predictable, my cable would have been gone except for another family member. I have actually moved on from the cat whisker and Quaker Oats box.
I am disappointed that Powell has chosen the self-segregation that makes a mockery of King's Speech.

I am shocked, shocked that Limbaugh would go after Powell after he endorsed Obama. I am really shocked that anyone takes Limbaugh (a drug addict and criminal) seriously--he is part of the right-wing bloviators who talk much but do nothing of substance--kind of like a Walter wallis of the airwaves

If you listen to Powell's explanation Web Link even casually, you wouldn't ask such a question. Experience to Powell - and to most thinking people in the U.S. - is not simply doing time under a job title. Anyone who still clings to the idea that Palin's stint as Governor is more significant than Obama's stint as Senator is ignoring the individuals and how they contribute, learn and grow during their tenure. To compare Palin's experience or consider her presidential material is an act of ears knuckle-deep with fingers desperation.
Powell's interviews are damning for the Republicans.
