Sen. Obama is not presidential material. He is the Democratic nominee because he can get up and give a speech from a prepared text in a manner that over rides all of his short comings. He likely is not even qualified to be a senator. His opponents in the primary did not begin to take him serious untill he had steam rolled over them. He has not even made a mark as a senator, maybe one as being the most liberal senator. He does not even have the experience of running a town or a state. This is one of the reasons why Europe seemed to love him, because they would be able to tell him what they wanted him to do.
Gov. Palin is more qualified to be president at this point in time even though she is the VP candidate.
