    •  Making a couple of assumptions there actually (0+ / 0-)

      Assuming Obama uhm.... I think Dems would have the house and the Senate, and if Hagel went back on his word/promise/signed statement, the Dems could block it.

      However, I think Obama would probably have a list of Sup court ppl he would nomiate and they would go from that list.

      Wasn't Nunn involved w/ Unity 08?

      •  The Potential to become Prez is what counts most (0+ / 0-)

        No matter who our nominee is, we have to be realistic. Presidents are sometimes impeached, sometimes fall ill, sometimes die.  That's reality.  That's why the #1 concern for any VP is that he or she be close enough to the President politically so he or she can carry out his agenda.  We have dozens of Democrats who are qualified to be president and who share Obama's political point of view.  There is no reason to pick someone like Hagel, who is not a Democrat and cannot be trusted to carryout the Democratic agenda should he become president.  And with due respect, are you 12? Do you really think that if Hagel became president anyone would expect him to work off of a list created by Obama?  If Hagel is president, he is president, and can do whatever the heck he wants. Your assuming quite a bit if you think you can trust him to act like a Democrat.

    •  Also Obama's hero is Lincoln (0+ / 0-)

      We all know who Lincoln picked. (Johnson did not go back on his word).
