Even at McDonald’s, you’re interviewed three times!

At least, that’s the thought of Ken Duberstein, the Chief of Staff for President Ronald Reagan from 1988 to 1989:

“I think [selection of Gov. Sarah Palin as a running mate] has very much undermined the whole question of John McCain’s judgment. You know what most Americans I think realized is that you don’t offer a job, let alone the vice presidency, to a person after one job interview. Even at McDonald’s, you’re interviewed three times before you get a job.”

Now I understand Sen. McCain took a gamble in putting Gov. Sarah Palin on the GOP ticket, and I’ll acknowledge she’s done wonders to energize the Republican Party’s base, but shouldn’t someone who’s going to be a heartbeat away from the presidency have more than one brief interview before she’s picked to be on the ticket?
