The New York Times reports Sarah Palin didn't have a valid passport in 2007. While it is possible she previously held a valid passport that merely expired before 2007, that's not how it sounds. So basically McCain has selected exactly the things he attacks Obama for: no qualifications and no foreign policy knowledge.
At his age and with his cancer history, isn't it a little reckless to select Sarah Palin?
Ms. Palin appears to have traveled very little outside the United States. In July 2007, she had to get a passport before she visited members of the Alaska National Guard stationed in Kuwait, according to her deputy communications director, Sharon Leighow. She also visited wounded troops in Germany during that trip.
