Obama won't pick VP for 'funeral duty'

From correspondents in Washington

July 28, 2008 05:42am Article from: Agence France-Presse

DEMOCRATIC White House hopeful Barack Obama said today he will pick a vice-presidential running mate who will "help me govern" and not just somebody "who I send off to go to funerals".

Obama, in an interview with NBC's Meet the Press, said his vice-presidential choice would be "somebody who can help me govern, who I can work with, who has a shared vision".

"I'm not interested in a vice president who I send off to go to funerals," he said. "I want somebody who is going to roll up their sleeves and be willing to work."

At this point in time the most plausible choice for Obama is Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana

“Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.”

His campaign announced this past week that McCain will pick his running mate soon, before the start of the Olympics, they want to maximize the effect of the choice, they don’t want it drowned out by the media’s coverage of the Beijing Games.

You and I are two of a very small number on this Forum that likes Ridge. Ridge stated earlier this year on Fox News that if McCain asked him to take the pro life pledge ,similar to the one that GHWB took at Reagan’s insistence in 1980, he would do so. I like Sarah Palin, Ridge and Romney in that order. I really hope McCain picks Sarah and shakes things up.

Bill Kristol told the FNS Panel that Barry will announce soon, too...before he goes on vacation. Little Barry needs a vacation after his trip to summer camp.

"This does NOT say Hillary’s on his “short list.”"

From the article,

"The Illinois senator declined to name any possible running mates, but repeated that his rival for the Democratic nomination, former first lady Hillary Clinton, would be on his "short list"."

If he picks Hillary, the only funeral duty she’ll do is Obama’s funeral.

True. He signed his own death warrant when he didn't visit the wounded troops (just up the road) in Germany. That's not going unnoticed.

"This does NOT say Hillary’s on his “short list.”"

This paragraph was jammed near the top and easy to miss,

"The Illinois senator declined to name any possible running mates, but repeated that his rival for the Democratic nomination, former first lady Hillary Clinton, would be on his "short list"."

Sorry for posting this to you twice, I must have been distracted by the entire idea of Hillary as as VP. I have nightmares enough about Obama and I don’t need the added worry of the “Beast” in the second spot.

Wow, that’s the most excited I’ve ever seen Hillary. Lesbians really shouldn’t marry men.

I think that John Edwards is toast.

Something tells me that Hillary buried him alive in that recent sex scandal to ensure he doesn't go anywhere near the Oval Office again.
