Strickland Eyed as Possible Veep for Obama
Robert Novak: “Support is growing in Democratic ranks for Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland as vice president. He would bring to the ticket maturity (he’s 66), experience (six terms in Congress) and moderation (rated ”A” by the National Rifle Association). He is very popular in Ohio, a state Republicans must carry to elect a president.”
Another important factor: As a supporter of Sen. Hillary Clinton, Strickland could help unite the Democratic party.
Emanuel Slams Kennedy
Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-IL) called the New York Times to criticize Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) “for remarks he made when asked about the possibility of” Sen. Barack Obama choosing Sen. Hillary Clinton as his running-mate.
Saud Enanuel: “I have a lot of respect for Ted Kennedy, but I don’t know how the hell he comes off saying that. The gratuitous attack on her is uncalled for and wrong. He is a better senator than that comment reveals.”
