So my DH and I have been sitting on the edge of our seats here for the last few days, waiting to find our who Obama will pick for his VP running mate. I am hoping it's Wes Clark. I know he's not listed as being on the 'short list' but he seems to make the most sense to me. He would counteract (and then some!) any percieved benefit that McCain has because of military experience. He's a 4 star general, former NATO Supreme Allied Commander - I think that trumps McCains time as a POW. I don't think that any of the other choices for VP would benefit Obama as well as Clark would.
From what I hear, the theme for VP day at the convention is a Veteran's theme, and the speech to be given is entitled something like "Securing America's Future". Wes Clark is a veteran, and his webite is called "Securing America" - coincidence? I don't think so.
Anyway, I hope we find out soon!! We're bouncing off the walls here!
