Palin Hosts Massive International Diplomatic Delegation for Alaska 50 Celebration

Posted by iusbvision on January 12, 2009

Not enough foreign policy experience they said??

[Editor’s Note – Obama’s foreign policy experience was chairing a small foreign policy subcommittee that he never once brought together for even a single hearing. That’s what happens when you get elected and start running for president right away.]

Sarah Palin hosted Alaska’s 50th Anniverary event and look who came to hang out with the Governor:

Russian Deputy Foriegn Minister Sergei Kislyak and diplomatic delegations from Hungary, England, Canada, Japan, Finland, Poland, China, Korea, Norway, Mexico, and the Philippines.

This is very smart. Palin is a world wide celebrity public figure now and you can bet that she will be making the very most of it. Expect to see foreign ambassadors talking her up in the next few years which will totally take the foreign policy street cred issue off the table.

In the video Palin addresses each delegation.

Update: Here is a Photo of the Delagation:
