Some in the elite media have belittled Governor Palin's role as commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard.
Greta Van Susteren went and got the facts about Governor Palin's performance as head of Alaska's National Guard from Major General Craig E. Campbell. Watch the interview:
That interview was more than enough to convince Jennifer Rubin that Governor Palin's role as commander of the Alaskan National Guard adds more gravitas to the Governor's experience:
I confess I thought the “head of the National Guard” argument was a weak one in defense of Sarah Palin. But this is actually a fairly illuminating interview which explains what she did and how she did it. You actually learn something about Palin and how she operates.
This is one of those instances where the talking point sounds goofy on the surface, but actually has some merit.
Obama has no similar experience to prepare him to be commander in chief.
