I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

You Have Got To Be Kidding Me

The latest Veep rumor ?

The most ridiculous one of all:

BOSTON (WBZ) ― Barack Obama has yet to name a vice presidential nominee and some are wondering if he might turn to Massachusetts to round out the ticket.

John Kerry for vice president?

Don’t dismiss the notion just yet.

Some political insiders are telling WBZ it could happen.

So why would Obama reach out to Kerry as his choice?

Kerry brings more money and name recognition to the table than any other name on the Obama list so far. Americans do tend to love a comeback kid and this would be the most amazing political comeback since Richard Nixon came back from the dead forty years ago.

And picking Nixon would probably be a smarter political move for Obama than picking a loser like Kerry.

Kerry/Edwards didn’t work in 2004. Obama/Kerry wouldn’t do any better.

    Yuk. I voted for Kerry last time. Because he wasn’t George Bush. That was the ONLY reason. Again I say, yuk.
