..and while the retarded half of America wonders why it was not Britny Spears, Paris Hilton, or Bill O'Reilly, it's must be time for a new vocabulary word:

Credibility

It's basically the opposite of your Ronnie Reagan. The monkey actor? Remember him? Yeah, unfortunately we do too.

Samsaran: Well, Obama has his Cheney.

Except for this guy predicted an attack on the OBL. He pretty much wrote a report that something like 9/11 would occur before it did.

He has been very spot on, with his foreign policy. Where Cheney has been wrong every time.

Bill Frist: Actually, newport, one of hte biggest things the VP has to do is DEBATE the other VP candidate.

I said that in my follow-up.

If that is what they are going for, then Biden is the perfect pick. I still think he had better options.

Demon of the Fall: Is there any qualifications for becoming VP? Was it possible for Obama to pick absolutely anyone, or do they have to be an elected official?

Must be eligible to be President.

That is all.

Nope, they won't. You're talking about the old boys club.

sonnyboy11: NewportBarGuy: BTW, this ensures McCain will pick Romney. Two junkyard dogs fighting it out in the VP debates.

Do you honestly think Romney can hold ground against Biden? Partisan blah blah aside, there's just no way. Of course, Kerry handed Bush his ass in debate #1 and yet Bush still won.


I agree with this somewhat. If he picks Romney the used car salesman his chances are done.

Palin would be the only good choice left.

Obama/Biden & Mccain/Palin

flip a coin. but then again Veeps dont really matter end game so Obama will probably still win this no matter what. Unless he screws up horribly in the debates against Mccain.

Ever been to a Southern Baptist church? There's very little Jesus, except when it can be milked for, "Jesus loved the poor. Give to the church, so we can buy new SUVs help the poor."

Corvus: He has been very spot on, with his foreign policy.

Biden was his best choice. He is strong where Obama is weak.

I was hoping he wouldn't want a Veep with a record that puts his inexperience and background into high relief. Damn.

Nope. I just can't think of who else they can pit against Biden, without getting thrashed in the debate.

But, we put way too much importance on the debate. It's all about the ads, push polls, and "gut feeling" people have.

I WANT the debate to count more, but we all know they don't.

whidbey: muck4doo: Try listening to him talk without blinders on sometime. He stumbles, he bumbles, his supporters say that is becuase he is thinking out his answers. That answer didn't work for Bush, it won't work for stumbling, bumbling Obama either.

That's BS. What "blinders?"

Even I don't expect a politician to give cold answers. They're always reading off a script.

Kind of a dumb reason to hate him seeing as how you make that criticism of any politician.

You don't have a good reason why you dislike Obama. You just don't want to be caught voting Democrat. Admit it...;)


Let's see, you don't believe Obama stumbles and bumbles? Maybe you just haven't heard him much. He sounds like a fool everytime he opens up his yap. That was a big criticism of Bush through the years, and it was warranted. Your guy Obama also sounds like an idiot when he is talking off the cuff, but it looks like you don't see it yet. McCain and Biden do not have that problem, Obama does. You won't see it though becuase you are too emotionally invested in the guy. He talks like an idiot, sounds like an idiot, and the only who are impressed are the Bush haters who hate Bush for the same thing. Sorry, I find it humorous.

because you can't have a spic & negro on the same ticket. America might vote for one but not both, Obama can' have a woman on his ticket for the same reason.

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: McCain will go Pawlenty. Especially after that poll claiming that he gets an 18 point bump in MN if he picks him.

18 point bump? That's CRAP. I live in MN, and in fact, I've heard that McCain will lose 3 points by picking Gov. Bridge Collapse as his running mate. I think he'll go for Mittens.

Biden is a great choice. I would of preferred Clarke a tad more but Biden is great.

Biden has great foreign policy security knowledge. He is probably one of the top experts in these matters.

A lot of knowledge of inside the beltway to give Obama good advice on how to go about implementing his policies.

Get used to it: President John McCain.
 
2008-08-23 02:06:21 AM  
Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Since Obama has to get PA, OH, and MI to win this thing, this choice just makes the most sense

well, he doesn't really.

star.walagata.com

OH, PA, NH and FL all going to McCain, IA, VA, NM and CO to Obama gets him a win with 282. He could afford any of these and still win or still go to a tie-breaker that Obama would win in the House (VA).

I think that Biden's nom will sew up PA, possibly OH and NH. With OH and PA, Obama could win without FL or MI, if he chooses Criss or Romney.

Otto_E_Rodika: What happened to Wesley Clark? I thought all the smart money was on that twit. Instead we get a freshman senator whose only credentials is that he's not Hillary and that he's been annoited by the media paired with a mediocre senator that's been a loser and also ran in the last four presidential primaries.

Hope indeed.


awww. You are stupid. How does that work out for you? Are you going to go as bitter for Halloween, or irrelevant? Keep reaching for the stars buddy!

fotojenic, but, but, but... A WHITE guy was born in Bethlehem 2000 years ago? He musta been an albino cus the only thing white in Bethlehem then was the sheep after a rainstorm.
Christ is only white to Christians who are racists.
Even the bible says;
Daniel 10:6, NIV:
His body was like chrysolite, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.

muck4doo: Let's see, you don't believe Obama stumbles and bumbles?

No.

Maybe you just haven't heard him much. He sounds like a fool everytime he opens up his yap.

I've heard him plenty, and you're exaggerating at best. Every time he opens his mouth? Right.

That was a big criticism of Bush through the years, and it was warranted.

Because Bush is a stupid stupid man. Big difference.

McCain and Biden do not have that problem, Obama does.

McCain's said plenty of stuff that makes him sound like an out of touch idiot. He's got Obama beat cold.

He talks like an idiot, sounds like an idiot, and the only who are impressed are the Bush haters who hate Bush for the same thing

There is absolutely no comparison. Bush is the bumbling frat boy who got into Yale because of Daddy.
 
2008-08-23 02:07:11 AM  
Thank you Simone.

I love this pick if for no other reason than it takes away one of BO's biggest sticking points about McCain - that he has been in the Senate too long and, ergo, should not be given the White House.

"McCain is part of the problem, he's been in the Senate for 28 years."

"And how long has your VP-elect been in the Senate?"

"WHHAAAARGARBBLLLL"

You have it nailed....

I'm amazed at how spot on you are with the analysis of Obama.

In actuality, I'm wondering if you got your lame talking points from 6 months ago mixed up and if you have freaking seen him talk on TV at any point in the past 4 months.

I mean, is it really hard for you to shut your eyes and ignore the obvious and just scream your own personal reality in hopes that people believe it?

I think so too (although I live nowhere near there). But that's what the poll said on fivethirtyeight. I don't know how much stock you can put into those kinds of hypothetical questions, when there are so many other factors at play.

But if the McCain campaign buys those numbers, he has to be the choice, right?

2008-08-23 02:07:24 AM  
Meh. Kind of figured it'd be him, but it's not a very interesting choice. I'm just glad it's not Richardson, Sebelius, Bayh or Kaine.

You are insane -- I bet you are the type who really loves Jim Rome and Michael Savage -- AKA: people who don't take the time to think about what they are saying and sound 100% convinced of everything they spew. That is the only type of person Obama would not appeal to.... Anyone with a farking fraction of common sense knows damn well the guy can speak very well.

Samsaran: Well, Obama has his Cheney.

Actually, this is more correct than people are giving it credit for. Obama learned from the Bush II administration that you need an authoritarian attack dog close at hand to savage your opponents. But you can't do it yourself. That was Hillary's mistake. The value of an activist Vice-Presidency (or Co-Presidency) is clear---Biden can get his hands really dirty and go for the jugular, while Obama can pay attention to other things. I'm starting to see the value of this pick more and more.

Well, thanks for joining us for another episode of Who In The World Is 'Rack Obama's VP? There's only one thing left to say...

DO IT, ROCKAPELLA!

Uh! Doo wop, do doweyoo wop, do doweyoo wop, do doweyoo wop, BOW

Well, he runs around the States
From the Keys to Carolina'
He's a sweet-talking hopemonger
From Berlin down to A.Z.
Drives the pundits nuts with
His VP coyness, oh, tell me

WHO IN THE WORLD IS 'rack obama's vp?

From Georgia, there's Sam Nunn
From Wisconsin, there's Russ Feingold
From the Great Plains of Kansas, you'll see
Sebelius
Well, we never Arkansas him vet
The 4-star general, oh, Wesley

who in the world is RACK OBAMA'S VP?

It could be Harman or Hagel
Bloomberg offered bagels
Oh, hell, let's just go with John Edwards
OH SH--

Is it Jan Napolitano
Is it Tim Kaine of Virginia
They called him up to tell him that
Warner dropped Bayh
All this rampant speculation's
Driving me completely Zinni, tell me

WHO IN THE WORLD IS 'RACK OBAMA'S-- WHOOA, TELL ME
Who in the world is 'Rack Obama's VP? (tell me)
Who in the world is 'Rack Obama's VP? (doo wop)

Who in the world is 'Rack Obama's VP? (CLINTON FOR THE UN-I-TYYY!)

All contestants have been briefed regarding talking points prior to their appearance. All biographical information is accurate as far as Wikipedia is concerned.
 
2008-08-23 02:09:39 AM  
Terrible choice. I am puzzled by the notion that failed presidential candidates, who got very little traction in any primary season, make good vp candidates.

He should have picked Sebelius. Hildebeast would have been an interesting choice, but it would mean four more years of Billy dorking the staff in federal office buildings, a bit of a distraction. Plus Hillary would be trying to poison the One the whole time. Clark would have been interesting, except for the fact that he tried to start WWIII in the balkans and got fired by Billy. Bill Richardson? Barbara Boxer? Bayh or Kaine?

Biden? Joe effin Biden? WTF? Hell why not reach for a real blast from the past and go with Gary Hart?
