I can list Obama's accomplishments can you list Sarah Palins?
This is not counting the over 10,000 bills in the state senate. Obama: Senate Accomplishments: Since entering the U.S. Senate in January 2005, Senator Obama has written approximately 890 bills and co-sponsored an additional 1096. Senators Obama and McCain have been running to be the nominee for President for their parties since January 2007. Therefore the 890 bills written by Senator Obama and the 1096 he co-sponsored all occurred in a 2-year span. That shows that he is a prolific and tireless Senator. Because of the long-drawn-out nature of passing laws in the Senate many of his bills are still in committee and some were vetoed by republicans. Senator Obama has an impressive record by anyone’s standard. For someone who supposedly has no record (according to his competitors) his record of accomplishments are extraordinarily impressive and inspiring. · Democratic Republic of the Congo Relief, Security, and Democracy Promotion Act.(This is the first federal legislation to be enacted with Obama as its primary sponsor) Became law · Secure Fence Act. Authorized construction of fencing and other security improvements along the United States–Mexico border Became law · The Lugar–Obama Nuclear Non-proliferation and Conventional Weapons Threat Reduction Act. The Bill expanded the Nunn–Lugar cooperative threat reduction concept to conventional weapons, including shoulder-fired missiles and anti-personnel mines Became Law · The “Coburn–Obama Transparency Act” eliminated gifts of travel on corporate jets by lobbyists to members of Congress and the establishment of USAspending.gov , a web search engine launched in December 2007 and run by the Office of Management and Budget to require lobbyists to disclose the candidates, leadership PACS or political parties for whom they collect or arrange contribution and the combined amount of the contributions Became law · Amendment to the State Children’s Health Insurance Program providing one year of job protection for family members caring for soldiers with combat-related injuries Passed in Senate · Energy Policy Act of 2005 to add $200 million for Function 270 (Energy) for the demonstration and monitoring of carbon capture and sequestration technology by the Department of Energy Passed in Senate · The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act (after amendments became the Secure Fence Act which became law) Passed in Senate · Education Bill.

She's a hockey mom. She was the mayor of a town that's constantly dark for six months a year. And she's governor of the state that's closest to Russia. And as Fox News said, this gives her foreign relations experience.

Wow, I can't believe you spent the time to write that on a format that might get one hundred people to read it. Who cares about whose performances? After Dubya, I doubt either can be worse.

In Alaska, Governor Palin challenged a corrupt system and passed a landmark ethics reform bill. She has actually used her veto and cut budgetary spending. She put a stop to the 'bridge to nowhere' that would have cost taxpayers $400 million dollars... More

Let me just correct your first point. If you think that Senators actually sit down and write the bills themselves, you are very, very sorely mistaken. That's taken care of by the office staff (of about 40 per candidate) and then the Senator simply has to sign it... More

890 bills is a lot to write in 600 something days. Not omitting vacations and sick days. List your sources I don't believe you, especially being a citizen of Illinois.
