Obama VP sweepstakes
Senator Barack Obama is currently on a brilliantly-scripted world tour. Joined by a few of the politicians that have been asked to tag along as potential candidates for the second slot on the ticket.
Before the speculation reaches its zenith, I’ll put my five cents on former Senator Sam Nunn. Although Senator Obama won the Georgia primary, Sen. Nunn brings a familiar experience and “southern” comfort to any Democratic ticket. The title former “Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee” won’t be lost on anyone who worries about what Senator Obama might do if he gets that infamous 3 a.m. telephone call.
Some will draw parallels to the choice of Dick Cheney, but it worked in 2000, didn’t it?
Not that former Senator John Edwards didn’t look appealing, before the National Enquirer that is.
