Barack Obama: "My Vice President won't be IN CHARGE of the energy plan"...

What Obama MEANS is "My Vice President won't be IN CHARGE of ANYTHING! I AM, THE citizen of the WORLD!"

I wonder if Obama will abolish the Vice Presidency office the way he wants to abolish the title of 'race' in exchange for 'class'???

If Obama had HIS WAY, only Obama would be President, Vice President, secretary of State, Secretary of defense and Commander of the Military Forces.

Doesn't matter WHO Obama picks for VP...he STILL cannot BEAT McCain hands-down, day-one:

Truth IS:

The POLLS are falling [Obama STILL cannot KEEP a LEAD], voter fraud [the largest in all of voting history], the protesters/oppositions like PUMA [this kind of division has NEVER happened before in any DEM race...ALL these things and other Obama problems/issues SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES from the mouths of the MILLIONS upon millions of people speaking-out AGAINST Obama for President right here, right now.

McCain's McMansion-gate may delay the Obama Veep announcement til Saturday. From WaPo:

--

If Obama's campaign had planned to roll out their vice presidential pick at any point today, that announcement is likely to be put on hold. Why? The campaign believes the story about McCain's many houses is political gold and they won't want to step on it

--

Meanwhile, it appears the GOP and McCain campaign's massive over-reaction to the story may be due to their own likely Veep choice. McCain spokespeople are bringing up his POW status as a defense to his not knowing how many homes he owns and affiliate-groups are launching a series of "kitchen sink" attack ads on everything from Ayers to Rezko.

From Mark Halperin's TIME magazine blog via John Cole (the original Halperin entry seems to have "disappeared"):

--

Two Republicans close to the situation say McCain has apparently settled on Mitt Romney as his running mate.

--

I wish we'd get a blast about this. I WILL drive to Springfield if it's Hillary.

No announcement yet, but an interesting hint in here: http://www.kmbc.com/politics/17267009/detail.html#-

What a great choice- the only running mate better
would have been Tony Rezko....atta Boy, Barack!
