While I am a resident of the state of Virginia and have come to witness at close range the unfettered awesomeness that is Senator Jim Webb, I have to admit, Optimus Prime would be an even better choice. The fact that Prime doesn’t have a mouth will prevent him from jamming his foot into it, for one thing. Also, the gun lobbies can hardly argue the cred of a guy who carries around a twenty-foot long laser blaster at all times.

Man, even here Bill Richardson can’t get any love. :)

Though Optimus Prime’s only real handicap is the fact he’d clearly overshadow Obama, to me. Besides, hasn’t Megatron endorsed McCain already? They’re about the same age…

Dude, it was one time. One time! He just happened to take some cakes. And even he now admits, in retrospect, that it was terrible.

On the other hand, he may have some difficulty proving that he hasn’t already been president, and while I’m not exactly up to speed on my US Constitution, I’m fairly certain they’d disallow him for that even if he didn’t take a second term.

I could be wrong, of course. Still, so long as General Zod and Christopher Walken stick with their independent tickets the Obama-Luthor partnership gets my hypothetical vote.

I believe Megatron already supports the Republicans. I mean the Decepticons and the Conservatives have the exact same views on the environment, energy, military applications, and personal responsibility.

I was skeptical when Jim Webb became the Democratic candidate for the Senate. But throughout his campaign he blew me away. I am so proud to be one of his constituents. He would be an awesome VP candidate and destroy whatever Repub was put up to run with McCain.

Actually Optimus Prime would still qualify for the Vice-presidency as he was on american soil at the time of the writing of the constitution. He just happened to be trapped in a mountain in a multi-million year coma.

Will: Former Presidents may take office a second time so long as they are eligible under the 22nd Amendment by not having been elected twice or served one elected term plus one term of more than two years having succeeded a former President as veep. So Lex – ousted from office just prior to his reelection campaign – is good to go!

Sebelius doesn’t bring Kansas into play. Bob Dole doesn’t bring Kansas into play. And even if they did, it’s still…Kansas.

K-Seb still ranks #3 on the VP power rankings, just below Bayh and Clark, I think. Bayh brings Ohio if not fully into the blue then leaning strongly, and Clark would be a good opening move against the war-hero overture the GOP’s tuning up for. Sebelius didn’t do a good job of distinguishing herself before a national audience after the SOTU address, but she’s leaving office soon, and she’d be a good choice for addressing those internal divisions (which aren’t going to go out and vote for McCain anyway, but I’m not going to drive through this running current of petulance because I’m not absolutely certain how deep it is).

Pros:
*Political experience
*Would be first female vice president, making peace with Clinton supporters hoping to break glass ceiling
*Longtime critic of Dick Cheney (who, as we all know, is Darth Vader with a heart condition)

Cons:
*Born a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, not in the States.
*The “Gold Bikini” pictures scandalize/arouse religious conservatives. (Protests that she had been kidnapped dismissed by conservative claims that she was “asking for it, being a woman and all.”)
*Kissed her brother that one time. Ew!

Obama should take Houston Mayor Bill White for VP nominee. White organized and led the effort in Houston to rescue more than 250,000 people from the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina and 3 weeks later did the same for victims of Hurricane Rita in the Beaumont-Port Arthur-Orange (TX) area. His nomination would highlight the Bush administration’s inability to care for our citizens during that crisis.

White is renowned locally and state-wide as a bridge builder and consensus former. He was state party chairman at one point long ago. And with him on the ballot the Dems will no doubt carry Texas and likely will elect Rick Noriega as Senator as well.

Last week (July july21-5) Charlie Rose interviewed an American Senator, Medal of Honor reipient for VietNam War era, former asst Secretary of the Navy under Carter and journalist whose name I did not catch as I caught only last \part of the hour long interview. Charlie Rose promoted this senator’s latest book on US foreign Policy ( as best I can remember.
Release of this book just at this time was either fortuitous or deliberate. The Senator is a few years older than Obama, ‘intellectually’ inclined – unusual these days in the US, and as a war hero politically supplements Obama’s alleged ‘lack’ of military experience – as if this lack had anything to do with his suitability as President. [see George Bush II!!] Above all, this senator displayed the same ‘sense of judgement’ that Obama displays. I place all my political ‘judgement’ on the one whom Obama will select as vice president. Whether his meets the traditional convention of a geographically balanced ticket I don’t know. He also, takes a lot of wind out of McCain’s record as a VietNam veteran.
Thgis senator
