No way will he choose Kerry..
Obama is in an interesting position. His VP choice matters ALOT.. it could make or break his election chances. The more centrist predominately white,
older democrats that make up roughly half of the entire party regarding voters need to be appeased, they all wanted Hillary to get the nomination and
are still sore over it; you hear some of them threatening to vote for Mccain etc, it is ridiculous.
So, because of this.. Obama needs a white 'good ole boy' democrat as his VP, even better if the person tapped is from the south, or has open
Christian faith beliefs/expressions. This narrows the choices.
To be honest, before the Edwards affair scandal broke, I really thought they were going to choose him. Now they cant obviously, but he did have that
southern, 'Jimmy Carter Jr." vibe. I heard on NPR news radio today while driving in the car that Obama appeared with Senator Joe Biden of Delaware
at a fund raiser event, and that they "looked real good together", implying he was a possibility. I've also heard mention of COLIN POWELL.. now
could you imagine that? Talk about the anti-Dick Cheney, lol .. Powell as VP would be great. But would it be as popular as a ticket with a white VP?
Sadly my instinct wants to say no ..
