Next to the VP

I am hoping our long national nightmare is over tonight. Or I would settle for sometime tomorrow.

Does anyone have any thoughts on VP? I am hearing a lot about Jim Webb. He won't make jokes about West Virginia.

When was the Phillipines primary? Panama? Wake Island?

Webb has been getting a lot of mention. The governor of Ohio has also been mentioned a few places. I think it'll be someone like Webb who has a national security background since that is Obama's biggest perceived weakness. The fact that Webb is from a state that should be in play and that he has a Republican background makes me think he'll be the choice.

Don't count out that Clinton gal. I hear she has spunk. She has passed the commander in chief test. She survived sniper fire in Bosnia. She's travelled all over the world for her country and worn fancy head scarves to prove it. She got more people to vote for her than the other guy, if you accept her fuzzy math. She can win whitey's vote, whether it's soccer mum or nascar dad or whatever whitey category they'll make up this time around. She found her voice. She zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

I agree with Corms that it needs to be somebody who is strong on military / national security stuff and can undercut the notion that Osama is wid da tarrists (although I hear he is a Muslim).

Errr... I mean Obama.

Fungster raises an excellent question: what whitey category will they come up with this time as the new fulcrum of American politics?

My choice: NASCAR Christians.

My vote for the new white person category is:
Inbred hillbilly phokks who would rather be poor and illiterate and dead than vote for a negro.

I don't think Clinton can help Obama as VP. Too many people don't like Clinton and too many people who like Clinton now don't like Obama. Plus it defeats his message of change.

I had been thinking Sam Nunn, but he may not be energetic enough. Joe Biden maybe. I'm just hearing more and more about Webb now. Plus I think it will highlight the bipartisan and pragmatic aspects of Obama's campaign.

I heard Obama was a Muslim too.

The chat is Biden for Secretary of State. I assume Roberts would also get a cabinet position. I think Clinton is probably best suited to stay in the Senate and become the attack dog for the party. No one is as tenacious and as wronged as she.

I must be having a brain fart, because I don't know who you're referring to with Roberts. Biden would probably be the choice for State. Expect Richardson to get an important cabinet post as well if Obama is elected. Clinton won't have any part in an Obama administration, but she could end up as Senate Majority (hopefully not Minority) leader. Look for Edwards to be the front runner for AG. Richard Clark as DHS Secretary.

Fixed!
