Vice Presidency, be damned! sayith Mr. Buzz himself, Barack Obama. On David Letterman last night, he said he'd not accept the veep nomination, and likened his battle with fellow front-runner Hillary Clinton to two players competing for the starting QB position. You don't (usually) make the loser of such a competition into, say, the punter or field goal kicker.
I think Obama is being smart here, because let's face it, he'd be a terrible running mate for Hillary. And she knows it.. Both are low in experience and high on flash and flair. Clinton needs someone more statesly, like a Tom Vilsack or Bill Richardson type.
And also, if Obama were to say, OK, I'll be VP, many would throw their support elsewhere.
In short: Much ado about nothing.
