Why does he need experience? Can't he just pray to God for guidance?

You're begging the question, right?

Because he's got charisma. Listening to him talk, I feel like I can trust him
I really agree with that, but I'm desperately looking for something more to back that up for me.
While I don't fall into the "oooh, Obama!" camp ... I do recognize that as an effect, and possibly as an effect that can rally a people, and maybe even unify a government around him and his positions. And that's what it's going to take to break the inertia of the present.

In contrast, McCain's "maverick" tendencies could well lead us into deadlock and inaction.

Interesting. So far, the majority, including me, is in the I-don't-like-either-one camp. A couple are lukewarmly for Obama. So far, no one has come out for the maverick and the milf.

I maintained my open-mindedness about Palin until yesterdays quote of the day.

 Quote:
"Pray for our military. Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right for this country - that our leaders, our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God,"


It was inevitable that I would come to dislike her - but not this soon or this much.

Personally I hope she keeps it up. She could well scare enough people to loose the election.

Nasty? Take of the glasses, let down the hair, add some makeup and she turns into the hot chick that gets the stud at the end of the movie...

I dunno... She can be pretty hot, especially when you throw in a Char...

Whoops; I threw in a little Bill Maher wisecrack at the end of my prior post and look what happens.

And if preaching isn't enough reason to run far, far away, here's a few more from a resident of her town:
