Could Obama pick Montana Governor?

Obama in Billings Wednesday

Presidential candidate Barack Obama will be in Billings next Wednesday on his way to the Democratic National Convention in Denver, state Democratic Party officials confirmed Thursday.

The trip will mark Obama’s fifth trip to the state during the campaign this year, an unprecedented amount of attention for a state with less than a million people and only three electoral votes.

Presumptive Republican nominee John McCain has not yet visited the state.

Art Noonan, executive director of the Montana Democratic Party, said no details of Obama’s Montana visit are yet available. He said he didn’t know if Obama would be in Billings with his running mate, whom the candidate is expected to announce Saturday in Springfield, Ill.

Obama’s visit was first reported in Thursday’s papers, but no party or campaign official had confirmed it.

Could Obama be picking the Governor of Montana for Vice President? Why else would he be stopping by the state on Wednesday night, during the convention?

While the Montana governor is under investigation for ethics violations...I don’t think so.

I think they would relish him being fined $750 for recording a PSA!

A turd floating in tasty yellow jello is still a turd.

“A turd floating in tasty yellow jello is still a turd.”

Pretty good, I have never heard it put quite that way.

As a staunch conservative and a McCain supporter for lack of any other choice, I am hoping Obama picks Biden. Now, that will provide for some entertainment for sure. Biden, has perpetual diarrhea of the mouth and loves to let it run. How's that for correlating with your turd analogy? :)
