BECAUSE SHE SAW THAT EVEN AL GORE COULD DO IT?

Obama: 'If I am not ready, why do you think I would be such a great vice president?' (Ben Smith, 3/10/08, Politico)

My colleague Carrie Budoff Brown e-mails from Columbus, Miss., with Obama's response to the Clintons' flotation of the notion that he could be her veep: scorn. [....]

“I don’t understand. If I am not ready, why do you think I would be such a great vice president?” Obama asked the crowd, which gave him a standing ovation during his defense. “I don’t understand.”


We forget how ahistorical it was of W to choose a VP who was actually qualified to be president. If she respected him she'd say she wanted him for a real job, like chief-of-staff.
