Question by james T: I can list what Obama accomplish can you list what Palin did? For 1 year as governor of 600,000 people?

This is not counting the over 10,000 bills in the state senate.
Senate Accomplishments:
Since entering the U.S. Senate in January 2005, Senator Obama has written approximately 890 bills and co-sponsored an additional 1096.
Senators Obama and McCain have been running to be the nominee for President for their parties since January 2007. Therefore the 890 bills written by Senator Obama and the 1096 he co-sponsored all occurred in a 2-year span. That shows that he is a prolific and tireless Senator.
Because of the long-drawn-out nature of passing laws in the Senate many of his bills are still in committee and some were vetoed by republicans. Senator Obama has an impressive record by anyone’s standard.
For someone who supposedly has no record (according to his competitors) his record of accomplishments are extraordinarily impressive and inspiring.
