McCain: The economy is the major challenge.
Q: You have said that the number one issue facing the US, and that is addressing the challenge of our time is Islamist extremism. What credentials does Gov Palin have in National Security, diplomacy, foreign policy that qualified her to be your partner on that issue…
McCain: Well, obviously the economy is a major challenge…
Q: No, I’m using your words Senator….
McCain: I said the greatest challenge of our time is national security threats and I’ve also said jobs and economy is the number one issue facing America so, but the point is that Gov. Palin is right on the issues. She understands energy which is one of the fundamental issues of our security….She was right on Iraq, she was right on Russia….
Q: You say you’re sure she has experience, but again I’m just asking for an example. What experience does she have in the field of national experience.
McCain: Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America..
