Oregon told that cerebellum is cramming toward tonight's debate exam you can see the set up there they've got -- Saint -- -- doing what I spent an entire college career doing stuff in my head with figures and facts that sadly did not stick.
Geraldine Ferraro knows the dilemma well you know she didn't -- this couple ways to lose the first woman on a major party ticket Ferraro says crowning of -- -- it isn't the ticket for a big debate.
-- It's well and for one thing it's not a matter of cramming your head with -- she has got to be very specific when she is asked questions about the issues that are facing this country.
And the reason -- is because.
This is not Palin vs -- mrs.
Palin vs Palin.
Palin has to prove to the American public that she is ready to be vice president 96 not -- that -- and that she is not the Palin on Saturday Night Live -- the Palin who couldn't answer the questions to see you.
Democrats are trying -- failing vs Taylor I don't know bigger and I'd like you are better not the only one who's saying that is because I think that's a bigger problem than an -- bigger problem you know it's it is the woman thing.
And I'm just saying -- -- I'm not saying that's -- right don't get high and mighty and Helen -- with.
I'm telling you -- woman she is money for -- -- -- still an issue it's an issue I -- said that when you were dealing with George Bush senior.
He was compact size and -- and that's all of that debate over again whose life wonderful you did great job thank you but -- -- and then he was agonizing how does Joseph Biden your guy avoid being Patrick.
Well for one thing what I would like to see him do is because I do think this is a matter of her proving to the American public who she is and that she's ready.
On the other hand what I would like him to do is I would like him to take the opportunity to distinguish.
Between the McCain Palin administration if -- -- to a car.
Ally or -- Obama Biden administration on issues that are important to this country I think this gives -- a perfect opportunity do that.
I don't think he has to get into the Palin vs Palin debate and I know you don't think that that's that's what's happening.
I really do fear is that where and I.
And I think they're being a little disingenuous and and I love it is not a not because I'm gonna zoom -- on this.
Here's the thing you were getting all hot and bothered with the way Hillary Clinton was tried as a woman right now we have a woman whose kid who was getting ripped apart from the moment you economic.
And all Geraldine Ferraro says.
That's not so it's one of the religious sect -- this is down and that all that's.
That's not yet because you're you're you're going from -- vs Palin to make it sound as if that's at that being Gary Democrat it was your defensive enemy was -- and -- -- well you know why it.
If immediate if Katy -- had done it in a way that was sexist I would have said Katie you're wrong.
But -- -- until -- wait before Katie the plan hey -- let.
Let me just say to you that I had never expected that I would see in the same election cycle.
Another woman running for national office I want her to succeed not because and -- about the detecting.
I want her to succeed because I don't want had any -- really are one I think you -- cigarette.
I don't think you like.
Like Barack Obama about that I had no I don't know you're not let my -- -- by guards at what are still angry and -- value added that so you're still like I know what that's like.
This series that.
You expected I -- -- I do have a point to this you you you were upset the way Hillary Clinton was treated and god bless you stood by -- throughout which is more than I'd say.
From and I don't want to see Sarah Palin tree -- in any way the -- -- that you didn't you're out now I don't headed back.
Many out -- right then and word in edge to his.
You know when I.
Concerned that if if there is a sexist comment for instance I it.
If if when I've forwarded jump on the stage like some of the other media people during the course of the primary campaign and the Democratic Party.
-- to become candidates and and questioned his -- that hit you that it believed that I would be yelling about Gwen Eiffel.
But when -- -- is probably one of the most you know objective people that I know.
And that there is that little book deal but that's OK I -- I had that's -- she's a professional journalists because she is not a sacrifice.
Her you know her attack to pay -- in this double standard units defending Hillary not now now but I have party I can I go back to 1984 -- -- -- -- me gonna make your point.
I'm sure you have -- and -- -- -- I love you make your point.
The point is is that when I got up there in 19184.
I had to show that I could stand toe to toe with the man who is vice president United States.
And I can hold my own -- the issues and that I was rated B vice president that's all we're asking assailant Sarah Palin as a woman.
That's what I want to see her do now.
Do I want to see her become vice president now even though I think it might be very nice for my granddaughters to see that.
I really do I think it is probably I don't and I want to follow you inside the voting not -- I will file if I'm an outlet for.
I hit because use -- so displaying what oracle buying me.
Look at me like I guess you do like -- -- -- not buy -- I think he's going to be a wonderful present for this country has that -- such a class that you won't bad mouth anyone but I know you feel -- know what I say that you don't get no I don't at all.
