Obama Arrives in South Bend IN

Senator Obama's in town, and speculation is that he's here to tap Indiana's own Evan Bayh as his vice presidential nominee. I was hoping it would be Hillary. Actually, I was hoping she'd be the Democratic candidate, but you take what you can get.

Some wag commented that if Hillary were his vice president, Obama would have to hire a food taster. There's probably a grain of truth in that. Still, as much as I like the guy, and as thrilled as I'd be to have someone intelligent and charismatic to represent the country, I'm not sure he's experienced enough to be president. I'd feel better if he had Clinton for backup.

Whoever the VP is, I'll vote for Obama. The important thing to me right now is that it's not another Republican. I've had more than enough of this crew--and I'm a registered Republican myself.

At any rate, the whole town's talking, and tickets were sold out in no time. You can follow the local news here at WSBT TV's website. Stay tuned.

*Update 8-06-08 6:52 PM. As everyone no doubt knows by now, Obama did not announce his pick for vp today in Elkhart. From all accounts, the speack was pretty much run of the mill. Here's a link to the local coverage: WSBT TV.

I like what Obama says but I agree with you in that I don't think he has enough experience. But I can't blame him for not tapping Hillary as his VP - she doesn't let much stand in her way LOL
