McDonnell: Palin 'qualified' to be president

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) said Wednesday on MSNBC that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is qualified to be president of the United States.

"I think Sarah Palin is qualified. I think Republicans are going to have 10 or more people that are looking to run for president in 2012 .

McDonnell to speak to conservative activists at Value Voters Summit

Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell will join fellow Republicans Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee in speaking to conservative activists at the Values Voter Summit in the District later this month. McDonnell and the former and perhaps future presidential hopefuls will gather at the Omni Shoreham Hotel for the fifth annual Values Voter Summit sponsored by the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Heritage Foundation, American Values and Liberty University. Hundreds of activists attend the event, which includes a presidential straw poll, an early predictor of which candidate may win the endorsement of Christian conservatives.

Palin will appear in Norfolk with former Sen. George Allen and former Republican senatorial candidate Oliver North at Freedom Fest, billed as a salute to military veterans. Also expected to attend is Republican congressional candidate Scott Rigell, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Glenn Nye (D). Thousands of conservatives are expected to attend at Old Dominion University. "You can bet she'll be firing off some of those famous 'Palin-isms,' " Democratic Party of Virginia Chairman C.
