by Damozel | I only mention Nader and Clinton for grins; I've kind of given up hope of the "dream ticket." (And if it were to happen, I'd be fed up with both Clinton and Obama for the cliff-hanger act). Nader says Clinton would be "the smart pick." (Politico) When the world and I were young, before 2000, we listened to Ralph Nader. But that was then; this is now. Anyway it's too late.
The only other contender I'd have been excited about is Wesley Clark, but according to Clarke, it is not to be.
You haven't seen much Veep speculation here because---to borrow Deb's
metaphor---I've accepted Barack as my nominee but I am not his poodle. I refuse to dance.
Biden was a top contender for most of today, but he says he's not the guy, and Joe Biden wouldn't lie to us, surely? Kathleen Sebelius' name came up again. And the usual suspects---Dodd, Bayh, Kaine, even Nunn---were still being discussed as of yesterday. The top contenders still haven't changed and I don't really care which one of them he picks. Like Obama, they all have more good points than drawbacks.
I can wait. I don't really care---the only choices that would have excited me would have been the ones I'm told he will never make. The others are fine, if unexciting.
In any case, he and his sidekick are my only choice. I don't vote Republican.
