With five children, one only five months old with special needs, and a pregnant teenage daughter, many are questioning whether she has the time to take on such an important role, and to be blunt, whether or not she should.
I find it very difficult to juggle part-time work and three kids. I am constantly tired and struggle to get the balance right. I am in awe of any woman that is so together that they take on motherhood AND the 2nd highest post in the world’s richest economic nation. But I can't help thinking that the reality is that one role will come first.
What's interesting about the new wars, is that the roles have been reversed. The conservative right, usually the first ones to defend homeschooling and staying home with their kids, are gung ho for Ms. Palin. And the liberals are bashing her. Next thing we know pigs will be flying.
The next couple of months are going to be very interesting indeed.
What do you think ladies? Can she do it? Should she do it? Leave us a comment and let us know.
