Was Gov. Tim Kaine too inexperienced to be VP?

When all the media pundits were predicting Gov. Tim Kaine (D-VA) to be Obama’s running mate, I don’t seem to recall any shouts of outrage that he was too inexperienced to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency.

Since Sarah Palin and Tim Kaine both became Governors in 2006, perhaps someone should ask Sen. Obama:

“Why did you think Gov. Kaine was experienced enough to vet for VP, but Gov. Palin isn’t?”

Perhaps he was just more experienced at being male.
