“I don’t believe [Palin] is ready to be president of the United States,” Powell said flatly. By contrast, Obama’s running mate, Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware, “is ready to be president on day one.”
The Maverick threw an all-or-nothing Hail Mary with Gov. Palin, and it looks like more and more people believe that she wasn't ready for the ball. I, for one, wonder how Gov. Palin thought she was ready to be Vice President of these United States when she clearly knows astonishingly little about issues that are outside the purview of the Alaska Governor's Office. That said, I don't know how much Gen. Powell's endorsement will matter on election day.
