Obama To Hillary: No VP

Obama To Hillary: No VP

I'm amazed this isn't getting more play. From Al Giordano at The Field:

The Field can now confirm, based on multiple sources, something that both campaigns publicly deny: that Senator Clinton has directly told Senator Obama that she wants to be his vice presidential nominee, and that Senator Obama politely but straightforwardly and irrevocably said “no.”

Also, another variation on The Meme: the argument that the Iraq war vote, and especially the Iran vote, were about the Israel Lobby. That's part of it; I also think they were about Looking Tough, in a read of the job of president as Commander in Chief and ONLY as Commander in Chief. Both a political and a moral error.

And this gem: "If Barack Obama would change his name to Barry, I would vote for him." Is calling him a "Muslim" shorthand for calling him another six letter word?
