Fewer than three in 10 Americans think Sarah Palin's qualified to be president, according to a new national poll – the least of any of the five potential candidates included in the survey.

But another woman tops that list in the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday: two-thirds of the public thinks that Secretary of State HIllary Clinton's qualified for the Oval Office. That's more than Vice President Joe Biden, who's currently next in line for the presidency.

According to the poll, 28 percent of Americans say Palin is qualified to run the White House, with seven in 10 saying the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is not qualified.

    Her EGO is unbelievable! She doesn't have a clue! Her Oprah interview is no different than Katie's interview, she is so simple minded, she doesn't seem bright, just average. Average is ok for most of us but not for President or Vice president. I think she tries hard to sound intellegant but you can't change who you are.

    What is with the MSM facination of Palin? Most losing VP nominees would have faded into obscurity by now. Heck, most winning VP candidates have faded into obscurity by now. It's too bad all this concern over qualifications hadn't been focusesd on the media darling, Obama. If it had, we'd have a real President not a pretender now.
