* Bob Herbert (NYT): it may be time to replace Sarah Palin

Posted by Lew Weinstein on September 27, 2008

Bob Herbert writes in today’s NYT …

  • The country is understandably focused on the financial crisis.
  • But there is another serious issue in front of us that is not getting nearly enough attention, and that’s whether Sarah Palin is qualified to be vice president — or, if the situation were to arise, president of the United States.
  • The press has an obligation to hammer away at Ms. Palin’s qualifications.
  • If it becomes clear that her performance, so far, is an accurate reflection of her qualifications, it would behoove John McCain and the Republican Party to put the country first — as Mr. McCain loves to say — and find a replacement for Ms. Palin on the ticket.



Sarah Palin is an embarrassment, clearly unqualified. I believe, however, that it will be the voters who send her back to Alaska. Stubborn old John McCain is not going to remove this blight from our political landscape. After all, he chose her.
