...thinks that Barack Obama's qualifications for the presidency are better than Sarah Palin's. He attacks Palin's qualifications, while defending Obama's:
"Can we [sic] conservatives please stop kidding ourselves about Barack Obama's 'qualifications'? Yes, if I had been a Democratic donor back in 2006, I'd sure worry about whether Barack Obama had what it took to be president. That was before he took on the toughest political operation in America, before he beat Bill and Hillary Clinton, before he won 18 million primary votes.
"Obama's nomination was not handed to him. He fought hard for it and won against the odds. 'Qualifications' predict achievement. Once you have achieved, it doesn't matter what your qualifications are."
From which I can only conclude that, in David Frum's opinion, surviving a few months of relentless butt-kissing by the MSM counts as an appropriate preparation for the presidency.
Well. Maybe he's got a point.
