CNN fact-checks Sarah Palin's statement that Obama only had 300 days of experience in the Senate before officially announcing his bid for the presidency. This statement is "misleading," according to CNN, because Palin was only counting the days the Senate was in session:
So the Democratic presidential nominee has 109 days more experience as a senator than the Republican VP nominee does as a governor. Of course, the length of their respective careers isn't as important as what they accomplished. If you read Byron York's "How Palin Governed," I think you'll agree that the Alaska governor's record is impressive--especially compared to Obama's scant accomplishments.
