  •  No way Obama for VP (0+ / 0-)

    With Warner for President thats an unbeatable ticket. A moderate and a liberal, both smart and charismatic.

      Obama doesn't want to be a VP.  He would say no.

      He is the Chosen One.  He is The Untainted.  He is carving a masterful, soaring, but very precise course defined on his terms by his very specific language.

      As a VP, you become saddled with every mistake, misjudgment, and misstep of character that your President made (see: Gore).  Obama doesn't need that risk or want it.  He's doesn't need a boost up from anyone.  He is too precise a craftsman to allow someone else to mess what he is building.  For the same reason, he will never be a Secretary of State (see: Powell).  He is too interested in defining his world view in too specific a way to ever be- or need to be- a second fiddle.  It would be a demotion for him.

      He will only run for individual or top-of-the-ticket posts: Senator, Governor, or President.
