Who will win Obama’s Veep-Stakes? Who cares? It’s the top of the ticket, stupid.

News reports suggest that Barack Obama will announce his choice for running mate as early as tomorrow and the media is buzzing with speculation over who he will choose.  Will it be Joe Biden to give the ticket some gravitas on foreign policy?  Or Jim Webb for the same reason?  Tim Kaine to give the ticket even less experience?  Of Evan Bayh to, well, bring two back-benchers together?

The fact of the matter is it doesn’t matter who will run with Obama, the problem with the ticket is Obama himself.  That won’t go away simply because he picked someone with more experience or even more out of touch than he is.  He’s deficient in experience and knowledge.  People don’t vote for VP they vote for a leader.

There’s an old saying, “You can’t polish a turd,” and as a candidate, at least for President, Obama is a turd.

    This site is great. I use the “turd polishing” pharse all the time. One of my favorite words is “douchebag”, too. Keep up the good work!
