Don’t Blame the 1% for America’s Pay Gap

He is also fundamentally at odds with his potential running mate’s message and criteria for his vice president.

Obama Doesn’t Lead, He Only Campaigns
Michael Goodwin, New York Post

He does not work in Washington. He lives and works in Chicago, headquarters of the Obama campaign.
