I haven't bothered to read the story. The title says it all...isn't it the other way around? Time Magazine and various other libs have been schooled by Palin. They have really stepped in it, to this point.
Palin doesn't need to "get up to speed", in foreign policy or domestic policy. All she has to do is to continue to be herself. The rest are details. After all, she has judgment and neither Biden, nor Obama can match her in that department.
