    ITS GETTING CLOSE TO VP CHOOSING TIME

    Robert Reich,
    who I like,
    suggests that Hilary would be a good choice for VP,
    and that Biden, the present vice president,
    would be promised the position of Secretary of State,
    a position Biden might find attractive.

    Despite my liking for Reich
    I believe Obama's choosing Hilary as a running mate
    would result in many of those supporters of Obama
    who hope the coming election will produce some degree of change
    to turn away from the polls.

    Obama, however, might select Reich,
    a Jew, for vice President,
    thus trumping any of Romney's choices
    from the short list the media is mentioning
    for such position.

    Reich thus heads my list,
    and may head Obama's list
    for Obama's vice president running mate

    The media now supports Obama's candidacy
    but Romney might change that
    by making promises, when he goes to Israel,
    that exceed those already made by Obama---
    assuming, of course, that to be possible.

    Robert Reich is to the left of Chairman Mao.

    Richard Dreyfus would play him in a movie.

    There is no way that Obama will dump Joe Biden.

    I agree that Obama would not dump Biden.

    Biden, however, is a realist. An activist and one long deeply interested in
    foreign affairs I would assume that he would prefer being SOC for four
    years to four more years as something of a non-entity.

    Reich is far from being a radical. He is a conservative, middle of the road person, who prefers
    the certainties of progressive change to the chaos of unplanned change.

    Hilary, however, is a radical
    who voices radical opinions ,
    and whose lack of understanding of traditional diplomacy,
    and whose favoring of unrestricted force and thuggery
    would turn many from the polls.

    I really wouldnt want Bidden dealing with foreign affairs with his mouth. He's worse than Romney....and OBama would look even weaker....keep dreaming but it aint gonna happen.

    I don't see Obama dumping Biden. The same speculations were said about Cheney in 2004.

    And Robert Reich is a flat out fool. If that man got his hands into our economy it would sink like an anchor.
