Petition to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to Voluntarily Release Her College Grade Point Average

This election year has brought much discussion of the experience of our candidates, but little of their education. When we citizens are hired in the private sector, we are expected to provide information regarding our education as well as our experience. We should be allowed to consider the same in deciding who to elect as our nation's leaders. Further, candidates should provide this information at our request.
Senators McCain and Biden have experience to the extent that information on their educational backgrounds is less relevant. We know who they are, we know what they will do. Senator Obama and Governor Palin, however, have not been tested to such an extent by experience. For this reason, their education and their performance in academia is more relevant. We know that Senator Obama has achieved degrees with honors in fields relevant to the office of the Presidency from two of the most respected academic institutions in the United States.
We do know that Governor Palin has a four-year degree in journalism and communications. However, we do not know how that education is relevant to the office of the Presidency. Regardless, Governor Palin should allow us to consider her grade point average as a reflection of her ability to follow through on a four-year task.

We, the undersigned, respectfully petition you, Governor Sarah Palin, to voluntarily release your college grade point average for voter consideration. We believe that education and experience are important factors to consider in deciding the election of our Vice-President. Excellence in academia indicates qualities that are qualifiers for leadership. Excelling in one's education reveals the ability to comprehend, analyze, and synthesize large amounts of information. It also reveals that one can be dedicated to a series of complex tasks over the course of four years that will, ultimately, achieve a higher goal. We believe the leaders of our nation should possess these qualities. We hold this belief with great conviction given the challenges we currently face as Americans.
You, Governor Palin, have asked us to elect you to the second highest office of the land. We would like to consider your performance in academia in making this very important decision. Please, Governor Palin, release your college grade point average for our consideration.
