Shock: Liberal historians dislike Palin

Of course, the article presents them as uninterested third parties:
So unconventional was McCain's choice that it left students of the presidency literally "stunned," in the words of Joel Goldstein, a St. Louis University law professor and scholar of the vice presidency. "Being governor of a small state for less than two years is not consistent with the normal criteria for determining who's of presidential caliber," said Goldstein. . . .

Palin, on the other hand, is a total "wild card," said Stanford historian David Kennedy.
Ten minutes of looking around adds some nuance to these opinions.

GOLDSTEIN, JOEL
SAINT LOUIS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW
6/16/08
$250 Obama, Barack (D)

KENNEDY, DAVID M
STANFORD UNIVERSITY/PROFESSOR
4/20/07
$2,300 Obama, Barack (D)

Two historians in the tank for Obama got quoted as if they were non-biased commentators on McCain's VP pick. Who knew two liberals for Obama would scoff at his choice?
