I watched the Obama speech last night. As the picture becomes clearer for me it has occurred to me that Barak Obama is a very good man, a decent human being, and a GREAT politician. I may not agree with all of his positions, and I know, like most politicians, he is FOS on many of the promises and issues he claims he can do something about and knows he cannot...
Still, Obama will likely, and probably should be President one day. But as a war time commander in chief with 142 days of Washington experience?
Obama would have WALKED straight into the White House if Hillary were his VP. I don't think he passed her over. I think she turned him down. Either way, if Hillary were on the ticket, top or bottom, the Democrats don't even look back. I am anxiously awaiting the truth as to what happened in the VP stakes.
Now it is up to McCain. I think his best bet is a woman or a Jew for VP. A Sarah Palin or Joe Lieberman would make this a very tough, up hill battle for the Dems. I love a good fight, and so I am hoping for a Palin or Lieberman.
Strategically, Palin might be a counter weight to Hillary in 2012. If Obama loses, we might have 2 women nominated in the same year for President! Wouldn't that be interesting.
