Being Prepared to Lead II

My beautiful sister of eight children, with the youngest born with birth defects, is a proud Republican soccer mom who is deeply religious. She is one of the strongest moms I know and probably fits well in that pit bull lipstick reference. She is beautiful and tough.

In fact, in some regards, my sister reminds me of Sarah Palin: her faith, her ease, her beauty, her charm, her politics, her service, her tenacity, her motherliness, and her draw. My sister is a soccer mom; Palin is a hockey mom. But do these things in and of themselves mean that either is prepared to lead the Free World? I don't think so.

"do these things in and of themselves mean that either is prepared to lead the Free World?" No, indeed. But a hockey mom has probably had to learn more about healthcare.
