>>He will Hilliarys choice for VP to go after the hispanic vote because they are losing the black vote. If Obama were smart and a little less liberal he should have switched to the republican ticket.<<
With none of the likely nominees coming from the West Richardson could be seen as good ticket balance. By remaining a non-serious candidate he can raise money and keep a profile but not be under any attack - its a fairly smart approach.
I happen to not particularly like him but frankly I don’t like any of the Democratic candidates.
I don’t either. Sooner or later, someone will emerge with the aim of ending the polarization of the country. Forget the far left and right and aim at bring likeminded people together. There has to be common ground which means a little good and a little bad that all have to swallow. The dems wanted to lead now and they have their shot. But GW could put them to the task and hold them to their word when they said they wanted to end the rabid partisanship. He could just come out and state that he will not sign any bill into law that does not have a good measure of bipartisan support. Sounds Idealistic, but I don’t hear anything good coming out of either side anymore.
