Something to think about, from Conor Friedsdorf:
I ask the following of everyone who watched tonight's debate--were John McCain assassinated at his inauguration by terrorists, even as two American cities saw buildings partially blown up by truck bombs, and Vladimir Putin used the opportunity to move troops into a former Soviet Republic, would you trust that Governor Palin would have the knowledge, credibility, bearing and calming influence on the country to handle the situation? Or would having her in the Oval Office freak you out in a deep way?
Personally, it would freak me out. What say you?
