"She has used her office for personal vendetta"

I would never vote for this woman for any office ever. She is ignorant, uninformed and dangerous to America—especially women. She would take our hard fought freedom of choice and destroy our environment. And for what she has done to the wolves and bears of Alaska, she should rot… I will do everything in my power to see that she is not elected as vice president.

Sarah Palin, the republican VP choice, is unqualified for the position of vice-president. Her plans for a Palin vice-presidency are even tougher and broader than those of Dick Cheney. The thought that her ambitions might come true is frightening! It is apparent that the truth means little to her ambition.
-Elaine F., Bonita Springs, FL

Sarah Palin is embarrassingly ill prepared for such an appointment. Furthermore, it reflects very badly on McCain to have chosen her, he whose slogan is "Country First" …
-Anita H., Washington, DC

I was shocked at her selection. As a woman who has benefited from the progress of the last decades, I couldn't imagine her archaic, shortsighted views being in a position of power. She has every right to believe her narrow-minded thoughts—though not to take the resources of Alaska down with her—but a potential leader needs to be open to learning, science, truth, discussion, contemplation, maybe even different viewpoints, and to a viable future for all!

The views and ideas and words of Sarah Palin do not represent any person for whom I would vote. Hearing the response to her speeches and the manner in which she is drawing out the ugly feelings of other US citizens reinforces my idea she is not a person I would trust to be in leadership. Her views of the world and how it works are diametrically opposed to mine. Her view of the world, our planet and our country is based on thinking that is limiting and divisive. I do not want to see her in a position of global power. I will not vote for such a person.
-Susan D., Eugene, OR

I am against Sarah Palin running as VP because she is not qualified. We don't need someone who is needs on-the-job training as VP. She has blurred the lines of church and state in Alaska and used her office for personal vendetta. She may not have broken any laws, but morally she has broken the laws of love and forgiveness in the bible, a book she's supposed to have read. Maybe she hasn't read it either. She doesn't seem to read any other literature.
-Sara C., 51, California

The biggest reason I fear Sarah Palin (and John McCain as well) is lack of good judgment.
