Here are the results:
It all looks fairly similar.
- Foriegn policy experience - both have none. How many Presidents actually have foriegn policy experience before being elected: not Bush, Clinton, Carter, or Kennedy.
- Executive experience- Palin has two years, Obama has none. Having to implement law, run a state budget, etc is far more challenging that just voting on stuff.
- Major experience in economics or business - both have not much to speak about. Not many
While it's annoying to see the blatant hypocrisy in the media, it may backfire on them. With all the discussion about the importance of experience regarding Palin, it raises the value of experience as a criteria in general. In other words, Obama is going to get a negative side effect from it as it reminds everyone that experience is important.
