Be Nice – She’s only running to be Vice Commander-in-Chief!

“Let me be as clear as possible,” Barack Obama said. “I think people’s families are off-limits, and people’s children are especially off-limits. This shouldn’t be part of our politics. It has no relevance to Gov. Palin’s performance as governor or her potential performance as a vice president.”

While I appreciate Obama’s call to the high ground, I can’t help but wonder what else we are supposed to talk about. We know nothing about Palin’s views on how she would decrease the size of government, how she would build a strong national defense, what she suggests we would do to solve the financial crisis we are in, how she would rescue the high price of health care and high percentage of uninsured in this country, nor do we know anything about her views on the high cost of oil.

So, I’m waiting, keenly, to hear her views on these conservative issues. Then I won’t so easily be distracted by questions of family values. But right now, I just can’t get my mind around who was minding the fort at home, when hubby was away in the oil fields and Mama was governing Alaska.
