Jen, I’ll risk bringing down the wrath of Rubin by stating I actually think Obama has a point here. Is he really knocking small towns by pointing out that that they’re, well, easier to run than large ones? Now, I suspect as regards foreign policy experience, McCain must know something about her we don’t. He’s been consistent in his vow to pick a tough and knowledgeable national security running mate. Ditching that or wiggling around it would constitute an alarming about face on his candidacy’s most important dimension. I’m sorry I’m not as taken with Palin as everyone else, but that could be because I’m not watching the proceedings on television.
