    1) He's been consistently wrong in the right way to be wrong in Washington.
    2) He's a clueless sexist A-hole jerk, also in the right way.
    3) Picking him would allow Obama to demonstrate his hippie punching skills, and prove he's not a prisoner of his base.
    4)He knows the right people and moves in the right circles.
    5) He's a card-carrying member of the insular elites, the D.C. revolving  door types Who Can Be Trusted To Maintain the Status Quo.
