WHAT? HALLOWEEN WON'T BE SOON ENOUGH FOR YOU TO PICK A VP, YOU ARROGANT ARUGULA-EATER?
Here's #3 of Lanny Davis's "Four Things the Obama Campaign Couldn't Resist Doing To Anger Clinton Supporters," at the Huffington Post:
Couldn't resist waiting to win majority of all delegates to announce Jim Johnson as VP search committee head -- the first candidate in my memory ever to do so while his chief opponent is still fighting for nomination -- and winning in last primary in crucial border state by 36 points (Kentucky).
What's the rush?
Hey, Lanny, you want Obama to wait until your candidate drops out of the race to start the process of picking a VP? Are you crazy? He'd have to wait until the week of the damn convention.
We know she's not going to drop out after June 3. We know that, even if she gets everything she's asking for on Florida and Michigan and still can't win over enough superdelegates to clinch the nomination, she's going to find some reason to hang on, some series of nits to pick, through June, through July, into August -- hey, you never know about those assassins, right? It's not going to end. It's never going to end. I'm half convinced she'll take it past the convention. I'm fully convinced she'll take it to the convention. She'll try to find legal holes in the selecting of pledged delegates, she'll work to pry away superdelegates ... all summer. What, is Obama supposed to pick his running mate in the fifteen minutes while the balloons fall after he hits the magic number in the roll call?
Stop whining, Lanny. Your candidate leaves the front-runner no choice.
