Amos Makes Palin Promise

American singer TORI AMOS has vowed to run for office if former U.S. Vice President candidate SARAH PALIN ever tries to get elected again.
Republican Palin's role in the 2008 White House race divided America, with many questioning her credentials - and the Spark hitmaker insists she'll run alongside the Alaskan if she ever eyes the vice presidential candidacy again.
She says, "If Palin runs again, I'm going to run on a Republican ticket. What I know about Middle Eastern policy could fit on a thumbnail, but I still know more than she does. You have to ask, how could a nation nearly vote in somebody who isn't qualified for the job?"
But Amos feels more positive about the future of her country now U.S. President Barack Obama is in power: "I'm a lot more hopeful. The (George W.) Bush years were really difficult times if you were an American who loved your country. Having someone now that so many people respect doesn't mean there aren't going to be problems, but so many problems have been left behind."

as a long time fan of tori amos, I find the need to defend her from the negative comments about her that some of you are saying. I am kind of on both feet as I also like sarah palin, and I agree about tori should stick to music, but the mean things some of you people are saying should stop.

Tori AMos asked how could a nation nearly vote in somebody who isn't qualified for the job? Didn't we just do that? How was Obama qualified?Because he can give a good speech? Tori are you much more hopeful now because we have a President that Bow's down to leaders of Europe & is trying to make us look more like Europe?IS that why you are more hopeful?

Maybe she should concentrate on mp3 and record sales versus a political career. After all, she may have a chance of succeeding at that...maybe.

This coming from a little twerp that dunks her head in red dye #2? I'll be sure to look for her name on the ticket in 2012. Who's her running mate - Amy Winehouse? Yeah - Sarah's shakin' in her boots thinking about this little twit ...

Hey idiot Amos (kind'na sounds like "I'm ass"), Spewing stupid comments like that only shows YOUR ignorance and lack of information on the subject. I'm sure you're just trying to stay relevant, to the people, because a majority of them (outside New York) don't even know WHO YOU ARE! Sarah Palin acquired more experience during her mayoral days in Wasilla and has more international experinece (dealing with Canada) than the blowhard O-Bow-ma, spineless, figure we have in the White House.Hell, an ROTC cadet has more military experience than he does!!! All of you whinny-it's all-Bushes-fault, liberal, communist, terrorists peace-in-the world, naive sympathizers and dumbasses grow up! The world is a dangerous place and we need tough men, AND women, to stand up to it. NOT bow in gestures of weakness or trying to kiss ass Presidents.The Nuge

I have to agree one hundred percent with her question about how anyone could vote for someone so totally unqualified, except I would be talking about B. H. Obama.

Ms. Amos - Please feel free to detail out the amazing foreign policy experience Pres. Obama had prior to his being elected to the Presidency.I also enjoy how the liberals keep comparing apples to oranges - Obama was up for President, Palin was up for VP. Can we go back to talking about experience comparisons between equal settings? Would that make too much sense, or simply destroy your whole argument?
