In terms of plain, unadorned experience, Palin compares favorably with Theodore Roosevelt (who, of course, was a genius), Ulysses S. Grant, and Woodrow Wilson. ~Lawrence Henry
Really? Palin compares favorably with Roosevelt (Assistant Secretary of the Navy, president of the NYPD commissioners’ board, governor of New York), and Grant (commander of the Army of the Potomac)? Unless we are talking about sheer time served, this is ludicrous. The most comparable of the three is Wilson, who had been governor of New Jersey for approximately the same amount of time Palin has been governor of Alaska when he was elected, and his administration was an unmitigated disaster for America. For some reason this comparison is supposed to be make Palin look better.
