Studies show that most vice presidential candidates in US history traditionally had most of the following qualities & experience prior to any bid for the White House. These are also standards most Americans use to judge the qualification level of a candidate (unless a person ignorantly votes for someone based solely on race or a single issue). Below the traditional 'Road to the White House' list, I had some fun with Sarah Palin's road to the White House. SNL writers said it best in their first parody of Palin with(a video that became a sensation on the web). In the sketch Hillary ( ) says, "And I don't want to hear you compare your road to the White House to my road to the White House. I scratched and clawed through mud and barbed wire and you just glided in on a dog sled wearing your pageant sash and your glasses."
