McCain's Choice Shows Lack of Judgment Palin's selection by presidential candidate John McCain illustrates poor judgment. The vice-president's duties under the United States Constitution are to succeed the president upon incapacity and to preside over the US Senate. Palin is not qualified to be president and is too ideological to preside over the US Senate: the world's greatest deliberative body.

In a war where the president has not once made any meaningful public display of grief, where he has not asked one American to sacrifice, where we have destroyed a nation for hollow rhetoric....then we stand for nothing.
