so she is real, not perfect

I read the story today that Sarah Palins 17 year old daughter is pregnant and that her husband was arrested in 1986 (that is how many years ago) for drinking and driving. First, she would not be the first person in the country to have a pregnant daughter. Bill Clinton can have an affair in office and still be a keynote speaker at the Democratic convention. Please!!!! It seems to me that people are really going out of their way to "dig up the dirt" on Sarah. It's her teenage daughter, have some respect! And a 1986 DUI ? Come on! That was 22 years ago! Please!!! Get real! So Sarah does not come from a spotless family. That would make her what? Oh, like us?

Well, I think Bill speaking at the convention has nothing to do with having or not having a squeeky clean record...it is a matter of "star power" he brings money and big name followers to the race- comparing the two isn't even close to being the same. We KNOW Palin's issues now- we get to choose if we want someone with her background in office- we didn't have that luxury with Bill- he commited his sins after he was voted for......can Palin do good for our country given her daughter's circumstance or her husbands stupid moment in time- sure, it is possible- I think having a pregnant 17 year old would make me want to be available to her to support and nurture her through this difficult time- but that is me and I don't claim that Palin should parent the way I would.......I do think though that she is sending her daughter out to the wolves by running for VP right now......I have a feeling she will end up only doing one of them well (helping daughter, being VP).....
