I agree with both of your thesis. Obama isn't qualified to be president if he's judged by the same criteria that Palin was. I really like your last statement. He is the President, whether we like it or not, and I really hope that he does a good job. I'm not expecting much but I'm hopeful. This doesn't mean that we should give up being the watchdog though. When he does things we don't like we should point it out and state our case, but we shouldn't dislike him just because he plays for the other team. We are Americans first and Republicans, Democrats, Independants, etc. second. Thank you for your statement.
Have a nice day!
