Wouldn’t surprise me a bit. The Insane morons running Obama’s campaign HATE bush with a passion that is truly scary.

” Wow...talk about an inexperienced ticket.”

“He has been a member of the United States House of Representatives since 1991”’

That’s not exactly inexperienced. And he has an MBA from Harvard.

CNN) — Sen. Barack Obama called some people on his shortlist for the vice presidential slot Thursday night to tell them he had not selected them as a running mate, a highly placed Democratic Party source said.
Sen. Barack Obama says he has decided on his running mate but is not yet ready to reveal the name.

Sen. Barack Obama says he has decided on his running mate but is not yet ready to reveal the name.

The source did not say which people got the call.

Obama has told some other potential running mates over the last few weeks that he would not be choosing them.

Obama is expected to appear at a rally Saturday with his vice presidential choice in Springfield, Illinois.

The presumptive Democratic nominee is at home Friday in Chicago, Illinois, with no public events planned before launching a string of rallies with his running mate ahead of the Democratic National Convention next week in Denver, Colorado.

He has a bachelors in economics and an MBA from Harvard (1981). In 1983 he won his first campaign and stayed in the Texas Senate until 1990 when he was elected to the U.S. House.

Certainly a career politician but at least he's not a freaking lawyer.

Edwards is a Dem that holds a seat in a pretty Conservative part of Texas. His district is fairly rural but includes Fort Hood, Waco (and Baylor University) as well as the Bryan/College Station area and Texas A&M.

One military base and two of the more conservative Universities you’ll find anywhere ... and yet Edwards has carried it fairly easily.

Chet Edwards was my congressman for many years.

He is a typical democrat, a smarmy a-hole. He votes both sides of lots of issues in order to obscure his voting record in a conservative district.

He is very liberal.

“His district is fairly rural but includes Fort Hood, Waco (and Baylor University) as well as the Bryan/College Station area and Texas A&M.”

Fort Hood is not in Edwards’ district. It used to be before redistricting several years ago.

Thankfully, we have been spared his left wing idiocy for a while now.

GWB has an MBA from Harvard. If the Dem logic stands this guy must be an idiot.

Probably a smart enough guy. It isnt going to bring him Texas.

This is a sign that he knows he is going to lose. They are prepping the next generation for 2016-2020.

Obama will not carry Texas no matter how many times his supporters vote for him.

Obama must realize as long is he is at top of the ticket, he could put Reagan as the VP and he would still lose. It will be Obama’s many, many negatives that will doom his chances and no VP will make that ticket look any better.

This guy is my age. The draft ended in the early 70’s when this guy wasnt a teenager.

In fact, depending on what year he was born, he might not have had to register at all. (THAT started back up again when I was in college.)

TEXANS will vote conservative. I think it will be purple in Houston, and in the gulf area, but it will not vote a DIM in office... But I live in very conservative West Texas and I have seen an unreal amount of Obama bumper stickers.

Young men who attained the age of consent in the years of 1974 - (I think)) 1981 were not required to register for the draft.
