An Edwards/Obama ticket? (update)
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, August 14, 2007

You've got to be kidding me. Yes, I know it isn't likely, and yes I think it will be Hillary Clinton making such a choice (at least for the time being), but can you imagine a more dangerous and less experienced ticket than an Edwards/Obama ticket?
At a stop on his "Fighting for One America" bus tour Monday, Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards was asked whether, if chosen to be the nominee, he would consider tapping Democratic opponent Barack Obama as his vice presidential running mate.

"I am open minded about it, to answer your question," said the former senator from North Carolina. "I have made what, at least for now, would be a short list for me of people to consider, just as I've done the same thing for each cabinet position."
UPDATE: Speaking of the Veep (15 months before the election, for heaven sake):
Democratic presidential long shot Bill Richardson insists he's "not interested" in the vice presidency but he refused yesterday to rule out the possibility of accepting the No. 2 slot.

Asked in a telephone interview with the Daily News Editorial Board how he responds to people who believe his presidential campaign is more aimed at securing the V.P. slot than the Oval Office, Richardson replied, "I tell 'em they're wrong."

"I'm not interested in that," Richardson declared. "If I don't get elected President, I'll come back to the best job in the world: governor of New Mexico.

So, Mr. Governor, does that mean you won't accept your party's nomination for vice president if you lose the nomination for President?

"I never preclude anything," he quickly replied. "But I am telling you that I'm not interested."
"I'm not ruling it out, but I'm not interested." Heh, yeah, I'm not buying the lack of interest either. Just give it a few months and a couple of primary losses.

OT, but I’d be curious to hear your reaction to the Cheney "quagmire" video.
