Besides being the President of the Senate and first in line of succession, the Vice President’s duties are left up to the President. That being said, this is what John McCain has set as Sarah Palin’s job description if they win in November.
Vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin outlined the role she would play in the next administration Monday, saying she and McCain have agreed that she would focus on energy issues, government reform and helping families with special needs. (emphasis mine)
Let’s look at her rack record as mayor of Wasilla and 20 month Governor of Alaska on these issues:
Energy – Drill, Drill, Drill. Their isn’t a spot that she wouldn’t drill even being quoted as saying “I beg to disagree with any candidate who would say we can’t drill our way out of our problem“
Helping families – Does supporting the billing of rape victims for their own rape kits count?
Sounds like Palin has a lot of work in front of her if she is to accomplish anywhere near as much as she did during her time in Alaska.
