  •  MEMO TO OBAMA CAMPAIGN: Don't do it! (5+ / 0-)

    My God what are you people thinking?  It is the absolute worst choice.  Have you stepped back yet and thought about the possibility of a "President Bayh"-- God forbid.  Can you seriously be thinking that Evan Bayh would continue or work toward half of the things that Obama wishes for this country, were something to happen to Barack Obama?  It's a bizarre choice, one that makes no sense either for the campaign or the country's future.  Please, please, please, do NOT choose Bayh; do not make a choice of expediency focused solely on the attempt to win the White House.  That would be a very, very shortsighted decision-- and the Obama campaign has excelled at avoiding shortsightedness.  Don't begin to lose track of what you've been working toward in the long run!

                I'm actually planning on working and voting for Senator Obama, despite being pissed off over FISA.  Precisely because I think he's better than McCain on the vast majority of issues.

                I'm just saying - No matter how much I prefer Obama, I do not blindly trust his judgement, in part because of FISA, and in part because blind trust in a single candidate/president helped to fuck this country up so much in the first place.  

                I plan on speaking my feelings about everything - including the VP pick.  And I encourage everyone to do the same.  Becuase we need to make our opinions clear.

                Also, just to piss you off:

            •  Blah blah, here's what matters: (3+ / 0-)

              Making right decisions. Don't think that just because someone has made good decisions in the past means they are going to make good decisions in the future. Each and every decision that needs to be made needs to be evaluated on the facts surrounding that decision.

              On this decision, of choosing Bayh as a running mate, the facts surrounding the situation tell us that this is a bad pick. I list a quick incomplete list of the facts above. This is a bad pick. Bayh stands for a lot of stuff Obama has railed against. If Obama chooses Bayh, it will be a sign that he's abandoning his prior good decisions in favor of future bad ones.

              I like Obama too. I don't think he's going to pick Bayh. Bayh may not have a speaking slot yet at the convention because Obama doesn't want him to open his damned mouth anywhere near a mic for fear of him saying something like "Appeasement won't work" concerning Iran.

              But again, if Obama does pick him, it is a bad decision.

              •  Couldn't agree more (0+ / 0-)

                Personally, I can tolerate Bayh on the ticket.  I am not going to refuse to vote for Obama if Bayh is on there with him.

                However, for the reasons that you cite, I don't think that Bayh is the best choice out there.

        Better attach that response to most of the comments in this thread... I'm sure not the only one who's not happy about the prospect of Bayh.

        Though you're right the campaign has done okay-- more than okay!-- so far.

    •  how about Caroline Kennedy? (0+ / 0-)

      she could pull a Cheney (sorry for comparison) and pick herself as best choice.

      OBAMA - KENNEDY '08

      looks good on bumper sticker.
