A mayor as president?

Dear Editor:

Wasilla, Alaska, was roughly the size of Carbondale when Sarah Palin was mayor. This is the majority of her political “experience.” I hope that voters will realize that this in no way qualifies her to run our country (she is a heartbeat away from the presidency) … it would be as if our own mayor suddenly became president.

No offense to Michael Hassig, but I don’t think running Carbondale, Wasilla or any other small rural town qualifies anyone to deal with the multitudes of economic, health care and international issues at hand. Then again, at least Michael went to Yale …
