Former Palin staffer: “She’s not qualified, she doesn’t have the judgment, to be next in line to the president of the United States”

Bloomberg:

“She’s not qualified, she doesn’t have the judgment, to be next in line to the president of the United States,” Larry Persily, who until June worked in the governor’s Washington office as a congressional liaison, said in a phone interview yesterday.

A supporter of Palin’s campaign for governor, Jim Whitaker, the Republican mayor of Fairbanks, also questioned Palin’s readiness to serve as vice president in a phone interview yesterday.

`Avid Supporter’

Whitaker said that while he is “still an avid supporter” of Palin as governor, he will continue to back Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama.

And just four months ago, when Persily left his job with Palin, Palin said that she was hoping to find him another job back in Alaska. So she publicly endorsed this guy. They did not leave on bad terms.

Palin says she hopes to find a position for Persily in state government here.
