Community organizer?, state senator and 2 year u.s. senator.
What is a community organizer?
Community organizing is a process by which people are brought together to act in common self-interest. While organizing describes any activity involving people interacting with one another in a formal manner, much community organizing is in the pursuit of a common agenda. Many groups seekpopulist goals and the ideal of participatory democracy. Community organizers create social movements by building a base of concerned people, mobilizing these community members to act, and developing leadership from and relationships among the people involved.
So the potential v.p. has more experience then a potential prez. If the dems want to go that way its fine with us.
Naming Joe Biden veep is not change by Obama's definition either.
I was less than happy as first about the choice, and am still apprehensive.
I like most of her story, especially busting up the corrupt Alaska GOP. I am a bit disconcerted that she has her own ethics investigation underway for pushing for her former BIL to be fired as a state trooper. He was suspsended previously, and according to this Bloomberg:
French said Wooten was ``no Sir Galahad'' and had at various times been accused of drinking on the job, shooting a moose out of season and using a Taser on a 10-year-old nephew. He said Monegan's position was that the trooper had already been disciplined for those offenses.
So maybe it isn't an issue, since the guy probably should not have been a state trooper given that he used a taser on a boy (even if the boy requested it, it was a stupid thing to do).
She is a bit light on experience, but she has 5 more years as an elected official than Obama (and chief executive experience, which Obama doesn't).
She is hot, but so is Pam Anderson. We need serious people running for office. I wanted to vote for McCain but im not sure now. i dont believe in abortion, but in the case of rape, if the woman wants to get rid of this embryo, more power to her! Not alllowing her to do this is just saying it is ok to rape women!
