Mari Culver, wife of Democratic Iowa Gov. Chet Culver, held a campaign
event for presidential candidate Barack Obama in Carroll Tuesday.

first lady Mari Culver says flatly that GOP vice presidential
candidate Sarah Palin is woefully unprepared to lead the nation.
What's more, Culver said, the selection of the first-term Alaska
governor, who has been largely cocooned from serious questioning,
reveals Republican presidential candidate John McCain to be a
risk-taker at a time when the nation needs reason. "To me, it's
further evidence of the gambling nature of McCain's decision-making
and his judgment. You've got to exercise the type of leadership and
good decision-making and sound judgment in the selection of your vice
presidential running mate which gives American voters an idea of the
decision-making and the judgment you would exercise as president,"
Mari Culver said.
