Steve Benen picks up on the Palin/Truman meme and declares resoundingly: Governor, you're no Harry Truman. He's right as far as he goes (but: war hero?)--she doesn't have anything like the experience and seasoning that Harry had. But I think Steve misses the point. Sarah's not wedded to the claim that she is as experienced as Harry. What impresses her was that Harry was an outsider who came from more or less nowhere to the Presidency in a matter of months. Sarah just loves that part. President McCain better hire a food taster.
