If Sarah Palin was a Democrat, running on the ticket with Obama, would she be undergoing such hatred and vilification? Be honest, folks, and let us know how you feel ?

Just wait a few years until one of Obama's daughters subjects herself to the same misfortune. That's when we'll know the truth - like we don't already know what that truth is.

She wouldn't be hearing any hatred from Democrats

but as we all know

republicans would crucify her

if Chelsea Clinton became pregnant out of wedlock, the right wingers would all be parrotting the phrase

its because of her immoral parents

it was fine and dandy for the right wings Presidential to make disparaging remarks about Chelsea, but don't say a word about the daughter of the woman that preaches to others that they MUST teach their children abstinance

No, especially if the candidate I liked said that families were "off limits." I've defended Obama on here plenty of times, even though I don't like the guy, though I do respect him a lot more with is comment regarding this situation now. I've told people that they were foolish for concentrating on his middle name, saying he was a Muslim or born outside the country, and I don't know why anyone would think he has an obligation to help a brother he's never known. So, you see, I CAN be logical about this and can see both sides. Too bad so few of you can.

We all know she wouldn't. The media kept a hands of policy towards Chelsea Clinton for 8 years. Republicans live with a double standard and face scrytiny that a Democrat never has to deal with.

Of course she would...Only difference being that McCain himself would have harped on it, while Obama's staying away from it.

Ultimately, I'll say it again, this is really a non-issue and it's unfortunate that the media is making such a big deal of it.

she wouldn't get a 2nd look - the media is working hard to get Barry elected. When a strong intelligent woman comes around, they hate it

Depends, if she still holds to the same beliefs and policies than yes. Honestly people would be screaming "What is Obama thinking?!"

However if she were far more liberal (we're talking 'evil' twin status of evil) than it would depend on HER POLICIES.

I cannot stress to you enough that her problem isn't her party, it's the fact that she (coincidentally like the rest of her party) is a hypocrit.

depends on which vilification you are referring to.

republicans would still be constantly talking about her pregnant daughter, rather than just let that go as Democrats have requested, but instead they'd be tearing her down.
