Palin bans reporters from meetings with leaders

The campaign told the TV producer, print and wire reporters in the press pool that follows the Alaska governor that they would not be admitted with the photographers and camera crew taken in to photograph the meetings. At least two news organizations, including The Associated Press, objected and were told that the decision was not subject to discussion…

On Wednesday, McCain and Palin were expected to meet jointly with Georgian President Mikhail Saakashvili and Ukrainian President Viktor Yuschenko. Palin was then to meet separately with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. >>>>>

Seems like she is padding her resume. It would be great to be able to announce, during any upcoming debates, that she has foreign policy experience by giving a laundry list of the cameo appearances of leaders visiting the UN.  The list that she intends to meet seem like a good ol’ boys network.  It would be real impressive if she met with President Ahmedinejad or other head of state where the leader is not going to be a ‘yes person’.  If she did, then this would be a more valid foreign-policy meeting to boast about when dealing with Senator Joe Biden or Senator Barack Obama.
