Based on what I have seen thus far Obama is head and shoulders above
either McCain or Palin in both intelligence and ethics.  Of course that
is not saying much since my opinion of McCain and Palin is low and
sinking.  I certainly do not endorse him but at least he has some
positive personal qualities.

And years in Washington does not necessarily correlate with knowledge of
the economy or good judgment.  McCain shows that. Of course being from a
small town does not necessarily correlate with knowledge, good judgment,
honesty or intelligence.  Palin shows that.
