I don’t know who Barack’s vice president will be. Have some ideas, will sit down one of these days and turn my spidey sense on to them, and then let you know!
In the meantime, had a conversation yesterday with someone who was surprised that Republican Senator Chuck Hagel, mentioned as being on the V P list, was traveling to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan with Barack. As was Democrat Senator Jack Reed, on that same list.
It doesn’t surprise me. Barack’s biggest historical hero is Abraham Lincoln. He invokes Abe fairly often, and announced his candidacy on the same steps where Lincoln stood.
Abe Lincoln had a cabinet full of folk who were of the various parties back then, bringing all their points of view forward and duking them out in Cabinet meetings – to Abe’s delight.
Barack could easily do the same. And I expect he will.
