That pretty much settles the experience issue, I think

So, after making Senator Obama's experience (rather, the lack thereof) an issue, Senator McCain selects Alaska governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.

I suppose one could say that being chief executive of a state is more relevant experience than years as community organizer, state senator, and less than two hundred days as U.S. senator.

This sort of argument is difficult to make, since the Constitution, which sets forth qualifications for office, doesn't assert experience as one of them.
