Would Palin Be Ready To Face Iraq?

Republican VP selection Sarah Palin on the Iraq War:
I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq.
She goes on in the interview to say that she supports Bush and sees the need for an exit strategy; but seriously, no one expects the Governor of a remote, small state to be ready to tackle the war in Iraq. However, that is the very reason why Americans rely on presidential nominees to choose wisely running mates who do have experience and who could step in to deal with the war.

The irony of John McCain's unwise choice is that he is set on staying in Iraq 100 years. I would think he would pick someone who could carry on that battle rather than someone who hasn't thought very much about it and needs to be coached on foreign policy.
