Been Gone; But Now I’m Back Again

July 31st, 2008 | by Windspike |

After a protracted trek to Europe with my family, I’ve finally dug out of the mundane chores of deleting email and such. My brain is no longer cluttered with trying to get through the weeds at work.

I don’t have an extended rant, as mainly, the holiday was relaxing and I didn’t pay much attention to the news. We were not there the same time Obama made his romp around. And, we didn’t talk much politics beyond which flavor of Gelato to secure on the day at hand.

What has been nagging at me as of late is who are the Veep Running Mates going to be. Does any one have a line on this as of yet? I heard some where that Hillary has pulled out of that contention and won’t be joining Obama. I’ve heard some inclining that Carley Fiorina is doing a lot of talking for McSame. Could it be that there are two Vice Presidential candidates that are women?

Any speculation out there? If you were a betting person, who would you put money on to be the Veep candidates in each camp?

    Welcome back! I have no clue about V-Ps although I’ve read speculation that McCain might choose Lieberman but mere speculation. Romney’s been speculated about, too.

    Welcome home! I’m jealous - I’ve never been to Europe and hope to go one day; Greece and Spain are especially interesting.

    The latest media rumors I’ve seen re Obama’s possible running mate are saying that Clinton is an unlikely choice, not so much because she doesn’t want the job but because Obama is not very interested. I haven’t heard any strong rumors about who is likely, except Hagel - I’d still like to see him pick Jim Webb, but haven’t heard Webb’s name lately in that context. Wesley Clark would be good too, I think.
    On the Republican side, the main name I’ve seen bandied is Romney, mainly because he seems to want it more than any two others combined and has been campaigning hard for McCain. There also seems to be some interest in Huckabee, with the religious right advocating for him.

    But who knows? My hunch, though, based on behavior thus far, is that Obama will make a choice based on careful calculation, so his choice will probably be someone who has a lot of strengths in his/her own right and complements Obama’s best assets.

    McCain seems to be staying pretty much on the rails of the Bush administration’s policies and methods, regardless of protests that he’s different, so he will probably go with whoever the party machine picks for him, and that will probably be someone who (a) functions as the attack dog or bad cop so they can continue the Rovian gutter campaign against Obama they’ve started, and (b) is not a strong or appealing enough personality to threaten McCain’s place in the spotlight, a la Bush Sr. and Dan Quayle.
