SECRETARY RICE: No, no, no. Let me just say this. I thought that Sarah Palin gave a terrific speech, and not to get into the politics of it. You know, she's governor of a state here in the United States, and she came across extremely well.
QUESTION: Does she have enough experience to handle the kinds of things that you need to handle?
SECRETARY RICE: These are decisions that Senator McCain has made. I have great confidence in him. I'm not going to get involved in this political campaign. As Secretary of State, I don't do that. But I thought her speech was wonderful.
QUESTION: But the -- a lot of Republicans are also saying that she just lacks the experience. I mean, you can dispatch Vice President Cheney to deal with Ukraine and Georgia, but Sarah Palin just won't be able to handle it.
SECRETARY RICE: There are different kinds of experiences in life that help one to deal with matters of foreign policy.
Palin didn't write her speech She read it from the autocue Palin appeals to the GOP base Governator. Female terminator. Yes, Palin IS inexperienced! McCain - Lipstick ticket! I have no confidence in Palin Neither McCain nor Obama but Condoleezza Rice! Palin can read an autocue! Correct. Republicans know .. VP Cheney rocks. Sarah Palin sucks! From PTA to VP? From moose to White House? Condi is TOO kind. Why? America needs the best VP so dump Palin, pick Rice. What a missed opportunity! ---------------
