Granholm Takes Swipe At Sarah Palin

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm says Sarah Palin isn’t qualified to be president. In an interview with the MIRS News Service, during her final week of office, she said the former Alaska governor’s departure midway through her first term in office says it all.

“I don’t think so. I mean,  I’m not saying a governor wouldn’t be qualified — because I think a governor has a tremendous amount to offer to a presidency, given the executive expereince. And, that executive experience I think is the best preperation to be President,” Grahnolm said.

“But, she was only Governoer for a couple of years, and left in the middle. And you don’t leave when things are tough. You stick it out and you make sure you do what you’ve gotta do,” Granhom said.

Granholm, a Democrat, filled in in the role of Palin, a Republican, while helping Joe Biden prepare for the 2008 vice presidential debate.

    what kind of GOVERNOR leaves the state they represented for 8-years,in a lot worse shape than it was when they took it over?? SHE DID, Granholm shouldnt talk, every democrat MICHIGAN has had, either Mayor OF DETROIT or GOVERNOR has done a terrible job. I WILL NEVER VOTE DEMOCTAT as long as i live in MICHIGAN.. Just leave us alone and go back to OBAMA..

    This is quite amusing from someone that was not qualified or competent to be governor. Since she was going to blow us away maybe she will now just blow away back to canada.

    It’s too bad Granholm didn’t leave after two years. At least Sarah didn’t tell people they’d be “blown away”. Jenny was a worse governor than even Obama is as President.

    About the only thing I can agree with Ex-Governor Granholm about is this. Sarah Palin is a joke!
