I liked Sarah Palin, not because she is a woman, but because she has the inner strength to get us headed in the right direction, but I feel that she needed more experience. I can also see that Col. West has the inner strength, experience and good judgement to lead us where we need to be. If people would just remember that this is not about being a women or a black. It's about getting the right person for the job. And I think that either one of these would do a fine job. But I think that Col. West also has the experience that is needed.
