It should have been Hilary. That would have been the bold, masterstroke move that would have assured Senator Obama the Presidency.
On behalf of all of us who have been arguing all along that Senator Obama lacked the experience to be President – including the McCain campaign – I’d like to thank the Senator for proving our point for us. He agrees by virtue of his choice of Joe Biden as his running mate who adds nothing politically to his chances of being elected, but who has the requisite white hair and senatorial credentials that he (Obama) is lacking.
Now all he has to do is convince us, starting with the Rally People who, with the help of an adoring media, gave him the nomination, that a Co-Presidency is what he’s been selling and they had in mind. Co-Presidency? Will Senator Biden simply be a close advisor, in which case he didn’t need to be Senator Obama’s running mate, or is Joe Biden to experience – especially when it comes to foreign policy – what Dick Chaney, Karl Rove, et al, have been to President Bush’s brain?
Senator Obama, it’s a little late in the process for you to admit that your resume needs padding. Better to have waited 8 or 16 years to run when you, personally, were ready to be President.
