Mayor Defends VP Choice Against “Inexperience” Charge

September 8, 2008 (GBN News): New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg today defended Republican Presidential nominee John McCain’s running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, against charges that she is too inexperienced for the Vice Presidency. In an exclusive interview, the Mayor told GBN News, “There’s no reason to think she can’t handle the job. Like Wendy Kopp says about the Teach for America recruits in our schools, lack of experience isn’t a negative – it’s a prerequisite.”

Mr. Bloomberg went on to say, “Of course, after a few years serving as Vice President, just like our TFA teachers, I’m sure she'll will want to move on to a more lucrative position. But by then, she’ll certainly be ready for a high profile job in the business world, like Schools Chancellor.”
