4. The rich can always put up mediocre for a front.
History is full of this stuff. Few exceptional people get to make it. You do not often find a group like our founding fathers. Palin is a passable person even for Alaska which has a high rate of education, look it up, and the rich in that state can move her to the top as she will do their bidding. The running of the govt. by the people has always been very iffy and it seems of late those that vote like the 'soso' people. Do they feel like them? Maybe they feel they will run the got. well and they just do not. You need talent and exceptional people. A Joe B. has made him self that exception person and so has Obama and they do not always make it in place of the second rate like a Bush, McCain and Palin. I guess we could also add "the Church' in with the rich if we are looking at history as they always played( still play) a very large part in this power thing. And we know for sure that talent is not on your DNA and is not passed down. One of the points of getting past English rule was to see the end of rule by birth right and handed down money and church in our business. I see nothing in Palin, Bush, or McCain's thinking that makes me think they know that about this country.
