Qualifications For Higher Office
So Sarah Palin sure does look like a big city mayor from here. Wow. I mean, just look at the Wasilla City Hall. That is impressive. I bet if my town had an inspiring City Hall like that, we'd have some serious politics and governance going on here. We'd have intrigues. We'd have backroom politics. We don't. Instead, we have to settle for this.
Maybe that's why the locals aren't interested in higher office. Maybe they're just not really opportunists. If they were, they could say they were qualified for national office because our "city hall" is a lot like the municipal government version of Abe Lincoln's log cabin.
