Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton address the nation
Clinton: I believe diplomacy should be the cornerstone of any foreign policy.
Palin: And I can see Russia from my house.
In SNL land the second answer is meant to sound stupid. In the real world, the second answer is the better one. As to their respective roads to the White House, Palin is Governor of Alaska; Clinton was married to the Governor of Arkansas. Rudimentary feminism suggests which is the more impressive and which the better qualification. The former road was traveled by Margaret Thatcher, the latter by Eva Perón.
A YouTube comment offers useful insight for progressive viewers.
One caveat: Let's make that the next twelve or sixteen years.
