As matryx stated, people tend to put way too much emphasis on page rank.
Page rank is a nice way to show prospective buyers or business partners that your site is well established and respected by Google, but websites can rank fine without having a high page rank or even any page rank at all.
It is important to remember that the Toolbar Page Rank, which is what you see in your Google Toolbar, is not your actual page rank. Google only updates Toolbar Page Rank every few months, but they are constantly updating your actual Page Rank. This is one of the reasons why it is important to not get too hung up on PR.
BTW, sorry to respond to a 5 month old thread, but it showed up in one of my Hubs and peaked my interest.
