Don't think he could help Obama carry Texas though.
No, I live north of his district. He was almost taken out a couple of elections back, but he survived. His district is mostly rural and he gets himself known to a lot of people personally. Typical Texas yellow-dog Democrat “good old boy”, coming across as a common sense type of guy to his constituents, but who fits in nicely with his DC lib buddies when the folks back home ain’t lookin’.
There is absolutely no way Obambi is going to carry Texas. Even if he has George W. Bush as his running mate.
You don’t THINK he’ll help Obama in Texas? How about there’s noway he’ll help Obama. He’s not the senator or the Governor, Edwards was elected by ONE district in Texas.
And in the end, unless the veep canidate is horrible, the veep doesn’t sway voters.
