Skip to comments.Could Patty Murray be Obama's VP?

In case you missed it ... the P-I's politics blog has posted on an online rumor: Open Left reported last week that Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), an early supporter of Hillary Clinton, has been approached as a possible vice presidential running mate for Sen. Barack Obama.
Open Left cites a "trusted inside source" and writes:
Murray was first elected to the Senate in Washington State in 1992, the "year of the woman" in the U.S. Senate. Murray would be a reinforcing pick for Barack Obama in that she is one of the few sitting Senators or Governors who opposed the Iraq war from the start, voting against the Authorization for the Use of Military Force against Iraq. back in October of 2002. Murray also mirrors Obama in that, before her career in electoral politics, she was a citizen activist and community organizer on environmental and educational issues.
Barry got the ears, Patty got the voice.
Ooohh, yes, please, please, please. She’d be an even worse choice than our idiot governor, Kathleen Sebilius.
Bill Richardson the Governor of NM. He’s friends with Tobey Keith so TK might even endorse them.
I can see the “Dumb & Dumber” ads now. :)
Also, the popular Murray gave a speech before or after 9—11 hailing Osama bin Laden for his intrastructure improvements in the Middle East.
Wouldn’t that be a treat? Patty Murray would be like a gift from God to conservatives. I still think he will choose Bill Richardson.
She’ll have to show her moonbat, hate-America, love-terrorists, endorsed-by-terrorists credentials to be a perfect Obama running mate though.
Patty is a moron, she would be perfect, but even Obama ain’t that stupid.
used her cash from real networks to buy her Senate seat, and has been a disgrace ever since.
The Momma in tennis shoes/sneakers ??????????
Ewwwwwwwwwww, this is why I can never say never....when I think things can’t get much worse......omg, WHINING Patty Murray. This woman makes me ill....her pathetic, whining really gets to me......
No she didn’t. That’s the other lady—Maria Cantwell.
So their campaign slogan would be:
Dumb and Dumber
Patty is another America hater - Marxist. Perfect for Obama.
Wow! Dumber even than Bobby Casey which someone said was another being floated. If Murray and Casey are even on his “long” list, he must be searching for somebody that would NEVER outshine him.
That would be better, politicians in bed with ther lobbist; Obama in bed with Tony Rezco figuratively and Maria Cantwell in bed with Ron Dotzauer literally.
The Rats, the party of Sexism and Racism, will now probably float dozens of women to placate the disappointed Hillaryites!, before settling on their choice all along of Richardson (or someone like him).
A more likely scenario would be Democrat Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius. She was one of the bigwhigs at the super secret confab this weekend at the Westfields Marriott hotel in Chantilly, Virginia (which also just happens to be the real location where Obama & Clinton had their little confab).
Can the dems be so stupid to run 2 gungrabbers?
Yeah, agree, it will be Richardson. He may help shore up the Hispanic vote.
soory...you are correct..get those two confused at times
Wow, I live near there. I thought there was a sewer leak.
Reportedly (or perhaps just an Urban Legend) has Patty Murray being voted, repeatedly, by Congressional Staffer as the Dumbest of all 100 Senators...considering the competition that is quite a title.
Patty has miserably failed the people of Washington State; she does nothing proactively, but rathers cashes-in after the fact by holding hearing which provides her cheap sound bites.
“Trusted source” really means the campaign is putting this out to see the reaction.
that wasn’t Patty....that was our other idiot....Maria Cantwell....
Say YES, Patty!! Say YES!!
Two morons are better than one!
PING for WA freepers....this would be the BEST thing to happen to us!!!
lol!!! murray is an idiot
‘...which also just happens to be the real location where Obama & Clinton had their little confab)...’
serious....???? did they lie about meeting at Dianne Feinstein’s home??
Is that akin to “The moronacity is greater than the sum of its moron parts?”
I’ve heard that theres one group that does this survey of senators and asks these basic questions like which senator has the best sense of humor, which senator is the best singer, etc., questions like that. Patty Murray has always won the lets just say “a few french fries short of a happy meal” award among her peers. She’s dumber than a box of rocks. She the one who said Bin Laden was popular because he opening day care centers for muslims.
you’re thinking or our other female leftist senator ....Marie Cantwell...who stole that election as well IMO...
LOL! I read it earlier and am still chuckling.
Yeah, Patty’d make a great VP. She has staffers to advise her when she signs anything. “Remember, your name has two T’s and two R’s, Senator.”
Cynthia McKinney./Just Asking - seoul62........
Speaking of Rezko, I hear he was found guilty on a number of counts in his trial. The MSM virtually ignored his trial though.
They even hate each other! lol
Won’t endear her to the Hitlery supporters..that won’t get em that vote...the little blonde turncoat from the northwest.
No, that's our other idiot Senator, Cantwell.
Murray has been declared "least intelligent Senator" by the group that does that. She ran as the "Mom in tennis shoes" and was also known as Osama Mama for explaining that Bin Laden had support in the Arab world because of his good works, building hospitals and day care centers...and that we were too ignorant to know that.
Oh, she's a work, all right.
