Sarah Palin

Washington, Sept.13 (ANI): Should she be asked to take on presidential responsibilities in the event of something happening to John McCain, vice-president Palin, if elected, may just find the White House too hot to handle, most experts believe.
According to them, the hyperbole being generated by Sarah Palin’’s perfectly competent and largely uneventful first television interview with ABC is all very well, but a problem could arise if it comes to actually knuckling down and dealing with issues of national importance firmly.
They say that this talk of whether or not Palin would be experienced enough to lead the nation in the event of John McCain dying in office, rests on a naive premise that many, if not most, vice-presidents have lacked the experience and the tested judgment that would ideally be expected of a president.
This is largely because they are not usually chosen for their qualifications for the presidency but for the electoral advantages that they bring to the ticket.
In truth, they say that if a relatively untried VP succeeded to the White House, he or she would instantly be enveloped by the Cabinet, the Pentagon chiefs and the national security advisers who had been appointed by his (or her) predecessor.
Major decisions on foreign policy would not be left in the hands of an individual neophyte. They would be taken over by the team which had taken power with the elected president.
Whatever happens to Mr McCain in office, it is his judgment and his Cabinet which would sustain Palin if she had to take over from him. (ANI)
