Times: Biden is no threat to Obama - but no asset

Times: Biden is no threat to Obama - but no asset

'In rejecting Hillary Clinton for a politician with a murky record, the presidential candidate may have lost the White House'

Article by William Rees-Mogg

I think Obama is a fool for snubbing Hillary as running mate. There would have been a political risk in taking her, but the risk in not taking her is far greater.

I agree. I think taking Hil would have gone a long way to re-unifying the party, and sending a resounding message that his campaign of change would continue.

It shows a lack of both courage and maturity.

I don't know, Hillary is a very large personality who may not be content with playing second fiddle. I have a feeling she would have constantly been getting in his way.

I could be wrong, though.

BTW, Palm Boy, I love the Favre avatar.

You could be right. The Dems do seem to be divided over the issue right now. I can only hope that the division continues.

Amen bro. Gordon!!

Howdy bro. Matthew. Actually your avatar makes the space between my big & next toe hurt. Don't worry though, I'll get over it, I'm just certain.
