MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is keeping up her criticism of Democratic nominee Barack Obama.
Settling into the role of attack dog, Palin met with Republican governors Thursday and said afterward that leading a state means you have to make decisions and not just vote "present."
It has become a favorite Republican line of criticism aimed at Obama. Palin was referring to Obama's days in the Illinois Senate, when he voted "present" dozens of times among the thousands of votes he cast in his eight years there. The move is common among Illinois lawmakers.
Palin spoke at a Minneapolis art museum.
