Obama: You Won’t See Me As VP Candidate

From a breathless ABC News:

Obama: “You Won’t See Me as a VP Candidate”

March 07, 2008

ABC News’ Sunlen Miller reports: While in Casper, Wyo., today Sen. Barack Obama ruled out the possibility being a vice presidential candidate during an interview with CBS’ Montana affiliate KTVQ. Here is a transcipt of what he said.

Q: You’ve raised $55 million in February and in your speech today you said “I was against the war in ’03, ’04, ’05 — all the way on through 2010, and you specifically mentioned Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Could you ever see yourself on the same ticket as Senator Clinton?

A: Well, you know, I think it’s premature. You won’t see me as a vice presidential candidateyou know, I’m running for president. We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and I think we can maintain our delegate count — but you know, what I’m really focused on right now, because all that stuff is premature, is winning this nomination and changing the country…

Well, it sounds like double-talk to me. Of course he isn’t running for the second slot now. Nobody said he was.

By the way, I am to the point of thinking the Dems should just give the nomination to whomever of the two uses “you know” the least.

But even then, you know, it would probably be a tie — between, you know, the most articulate speaker of our generation and, you know, the smartest woman in the world.
