Obama vs. Palin: Who'd You Rather...

... balance a checkbook, or a budget

... stand beside you in a fight

... plead a case defending your Constitutional rights

... speak to the family of a fallen soldier

... represent your best interests in a negotiation

Tell you they have your best interest at heart.

Cater your next bar mitzvah.

... Find your dropped wallet.

... Watch your house while you're on vacation.

... Feed your dog when you're on a business trip.

... Tend a fire on an adjacent lot.

... Read your electric meter.

Can I choose "None of the above"?

Although I don't consider myself a Democrat, I am a liberal.

I would choose Obama over Palin in your five situations without hesitation. If you had pitted Obama against Colin Powell, I would have had to put some thought into the matter.

I'd go with Palin on all of the ones you mentioned, but if you asked which one would you prefer to suggest a name for your kids, I'd go with Obama.

Eric, if you'd choose Mr. Zero Empathy to read off flashcards to the family of a fallen soldier over someone with a child in the military... well, not to put to fine a point on it, but you're a fool.

Now, I can see choosing Obama to handle your finances. Not that he'd do a better job of it, but he could arrange favors to get you off the hook when TurboTax *oops* makes an impossible error in your favor for thousands of dollars.

I don't like either. But I don't like anyone, other than the Paul's, that have been suggested. I feel we are at that point faced by France in 1890's. It is time for everyone to loose a head.

david7134, don't you mean France in the 1790's?
