"And plus she’s a mother of five. And we were out at the state fair and somebody said, 'Look, any person who can help raise five children, any mother who can raise five children … certainly could be vice-president of the United States.' Because, they said, being a mom is tougher than being vice-president."This could either be an accolade for being a mom, or a mocking of the responsibility of being VP. Based on the amount of influence Cheney exerted during the Bush administration, I think it's supposed to be an accolade for being a mother.
Freudian slip there? The part about "help raise five children" (per the weekend rumors about her last child)?
But based on this, shouldn't Michelle Duggar, mother of 17 with 18 on the way, have been McCain's pick?
At any rate, what we should really worry about is whether a mother of 5, two-year governor of a state who's population is smaller than that of 16 cities in America, whose only other experience was as mayor of a village of 8,500 (from which she was nearly recalled), is capable of being president.
Because as VP, she's a heartbeat away from that, and with John McCain being 72 and having been treated for melanoma more than once, is that someone we want to take a chance on?
What do you think would happen if she met with Vladimir Putin? He would destroy her.
