    Would you mind reminding me what “experience” or “qualifications” Ms. Martinez has that would qualify her to be governor or vice president?

    Qualifications to be vice president: A person must be a native-born citizen at least 35 years of age and a resident of the united states for at least 14 years.

    Doesn’t require “experience”

    Qualifications to be governor of New Mexico: must be at least thirty years of age; must be a citizen of the United States; and must have resided continuously in New Mexico for five years preceding election

    Doesn’t require “experience”

    Beyond that its each voter’s opinion.

    JusticeP If you are going to use “it is fair to say” and then say that Gov Martinez has no experience, you aren’t being serious. Maybe its not enough or the right kind, “ot meets your standards, but its certainly not “none:.

    Weighting all the evidence that is visible I believe it fair to say Gov. Martinez approval ratings has much to do with comparing her with the past administration and it does not take much to have an approval rating over the past administration.

    I feel her qualifications for vice president are:
    One: Female
    Two: Hispanic
    Three: Experience (None)
    Four: Reason for selection (To get votes)

    I feel her qualifications for governor are:
    One: Pawn for Jay McCleskey
    Two: Reason for Selection: (Could not get any worse than Richardson)
    Three: Experience (None)

    If Martinez’s “new rule” (you must resign your current position if running for a higher office) would be honored by her (the shoe fits all parties) then if Sanchez and Martinez were to resign and run for higher office—the replacement does not seem to be an option.

    But it is sadly funny… and, let’s be honest, not half as ludicrous as their last candidate.

    Martinez for Vice President is ridiculous and insulting!
