    I thought that I would explain what I meant, when I said........
    “That I was not sure about Sarah Palin yet”

    I am not sure, that I would vote for a woman to be president.
    In light of......
    Isaiah 3:11-12
    V.11 Woe unto the wicked! [it shall be] ill [with him]: for the reward of his hands shall be given him.
    V.12 [As for] my people, children [are] their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause [thee] to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

    Of course the word translated here as women ruling over is often translated as youth.

    The unprepared should not rule.

    But don't know as Palin is unprepared and the president is not a ruler but a leader.

    I am sure about her today, but she may change my mind tomorrow. It is clear from the speech, that she did not write it since her on the spot interviews are not of this caliber. While I am not against a woman president and while I commend her words in this speech she will have to prove to me that these words of wisdom are really her. I say she must prove herself because based on what i have seen in her family she does not have the ability to rule a nation, however my opinion could change about that.

    Anyone can appear to be wise when reading a prepared statement.

    This phrase is actually two words in the Hebrew, 'ishshah (woman) and mashal (rule). I've examined many passages and can't find a one where your statement is true.

    I'm still trying to figure this out. Please explain and help me out here.
