Quick Courses in World Leadership

How about these apples?
U.S. presidential candidate Sen. John McCain may take his running mate Sarah Palin to the United Nations next week, U.N. officials said on Tuesday, to give her the chance to meet a few world leaders... The Wall Street Journal cited an unnamed Republican strategist as saying a visit to the United Nations would boost the Alaska governor's foreign policy credentials.
Seriously? Is this really what they're reduced to? The deal is that she's never met a foreign leader. So going on a civics field trip with Grampa John is suddenly going to make her a foreign policy guru? It's good to know. Now I can fulfill my dream of being a zoologist by taking a trip to the San Diego Zoo. Hey, all the animals are there, what more do you need to know?
