The better choice and vetting of a VEEP candidate?

Tell me: which of the following do you think was better ? The Democrats' double-standards are showing.

"with the help of the Kansas City Democratic machine boss Tom Pendergast, Truman was elected as a judge of the County Court of the eastern district of Jackson County--an administrative, not judicial, position"Assistant Secretary of the Navy"Mayor of Northampton when the incumbent Democrat retired...defeated challenger 1,597 to 1,409." (Meaning, the population was about 3,006, slightly more than half the size of Wasilla.

"Coolidge's duties as lieutenant governor were few; in Massachusetts, the [L.G.] does not preside over the state Senate"
WELL-VETTED-
IN-ADVANCE CHOICE?
Vetting began May 2008, led by former Reagan White House Counsel Arthur B. Culvahouse Jr.: "McCain initially met Palin in February...25 people cull[ed] information from public sources without her knowledge...[then] reviewed speeches, financial records, tax information, litigation, investigations, ethical charges, [any] marriages and divorces... For Palin specifically, [they] studied online archives of the state's largest newspapers, including the Anchorage Daily News, [produced a] 40-some page single spaced report...reviewed by McCain, Schmidt, campaign manager Rick Davis, and top advisers Mark Salter and Charlie Black... Palin [answered] a personal data questionnaire with 70 'very intrusive' questions, submit[ted] a number of years of federal and state tax returns [and credit checks]... Culvahouse then conducted a nearly three-hour interview, asked follow-up questions, 'spent a lot of time with her lawyer' on the [trooper] matter... Throughout the process...Davis had multiple conversations with Palin...[McCain] held one phone conversation with her [in late August] before he met with her a second time and offered her the job.""Hating to disappoint and alienate any of the potential candidates, [F.D.] Roosevelt kept them all guessing... Roosevelt said, 'I hardly know Truman.' (Roosevelt, whose own health was growing precarious, did not even know Truman's age."

"Following months of uncertainty over the president's preference for a running mate, Truman was selected as Roosevelt's vice presidential candidate in 1944 as the result of a deal worked out by Hannegan, who was Democratic National Chairman that year."
"Republican boss Thomas Collier Platt forced [T.R.] on McKinley as a running mate in the 1900 election, against the wishes of McKinley's manager, Senator Mark Hanna.""By June 12, a Saturday night, many of the delegates had gone home [from the national convention], along with most of the party bosses. After Lenroot's name had been placed in nomination and seconded, but before a vote could be taken, an Oregon delegate, Wallace McCamant, nominated Coolidge for vice-president. Unfettered by party bosses, the delegates weighed in for Coolidge, who received 674 votes to Lenroot's 146 and won on the first ballot."
Primary Source: The Wall Street Journal article, "Palin and the 'Experience' Canard".

And can you guess who said these lines?

  • "[The Vice Presidential candidate] had had no experience in relations with Britain or Russia...didn't know the right people...[The Vice Presidential candidate] didn't know [the] Secretary of State, more than to say hello. [The Vice Presidential candidate] had no background in foreign policy, no expert or experienced advisors...to call upon for help."

    "To many, it was...that the least of elected officials--ar at any rate the least likely of them--[would] assume the President's place upon his death."

    Think it was a liberal/Democrat media source, pundit or politician speaking about Sarah Palin?

    No. It was David McCullough, biographer of Democrat Harry S. Truman. While those quotes were of Truman after Roosevelt's death, it is clear that, since McCullough further documents how "unprepared, bewildered" Truman remained throughout his Vice Presidency, it is obvious that he was so before becoming Vice President.

  • Who said this?
    "You could argue that nobody is ready to be president. I certainly learned a lot about the job in the first year. You can argue that even if you've been vice president for eight years, that no one can be fully ready for the pressures of the office. And that everyone learns something, and something different. You could argue that. "
    A Republican talking about Sarah Palin?

    No. Bill Clinton, giving Obama a "pass" on the experience issue just this past August 2008, when Clinton was pressed to endorse Obama's readiness to be President. That second link has the ABC video, watch it for yourselves, it's about 3/4 of the way through the interview.
