    Where the hell has Colin Powell been for the last 3 years?? I heard he gives speeches for money, but isn't that Bill Clinton's gig?

    Actually, that's standard operating for all politicians, hitting the speech circuit. Remember Reagan was big on that, giving speeches in Japan for a cool $2 million. Now they all do it.

    In an interview Sunday with New York's WWOR-TV, Palin responded: "I beg to differ with him. Not only will my executive experience be put to very good use ... but also, you know the vision that I share with John McCain."
