Ready to lead now? Nope.




Caption: Ready to lead? Palin still doesn’t know what the vice president’s duties are:
"... A vice president has a really great job because, not only are they there to support the president's agenda, they're like the team member, the teammate to that president, but also, they're in charge of the U.S. Senate.”

Print the Truth-- 1. she was speaking to 3rd graders, doing what every mom does when trying to make a multi-layered comment more understandable, she made it age-appropriate. Why don't you read the following and make a concise, age-appropriate statement to 7 & 8 year olds
"The Constitution gives the vice president few other official duties. The vice president serves as president of the Senate, formally presiding over Senate deliberations. Even this constitutional responsibility is limited, giving the vice president a vote on Senate bills and resolutions only if there is a tie vote. Because of this limited role in the Senate, the vice president rarely comes to the chamber. The Senate selects a president pro tempore (temporary president), who supervises the Senate most of the time. The vice president also presides over a joint session of Congress when it formally counts electoral votes for presidential elections."
As the old adage goes, "Print the Truth" heal thyself.

You are trying to use the same spin move that failed miserably upon media scrutiny. Palin's aides couldn't even defend her gaffe: watch this interview of McCain spokesperson Nancy Pfotenhauer where Palin's DIRECT quote and ensuing analysis clearly reveals her unpreparedness for the position.
