The Competition

posted by on August 23 at 10:55 AM

Turns out my plane to Denver is full of political types.


From left to right, Goldy and Darryl from Horsesass, and former state Democratic party chair (and current Hillary Clinton delegate whip) Paul Berendt.

The journalists reporting on journalists has already begun. But here’s an interesting tidbit: Berendt, who as I’ve noted before is a die-hard Hillary supporter, expressed surprise and disappointment that Clinton wasn’t picked as VP. He also bragged that he’s having dinner with the Ambassador of New Zealand tomorrow night.

@1: You might learn not to moan about things that are inordinately likely to be fixed in a matter of minutes or seconds.

Gore unavailable, HRC off limits due to petulance of Obama, then Biden's a good pick. Two cheers.

Far better than Birch Eveans Bayh III or unknown inexp. Kaine.

Also: this shows that voting for the war and having experience as a DC insider is now a good thing. Ayup--all that talk of hope/change/HRC-is-too-inside HRC-fails-because-she-voted-for-the-war was all just normal political talk & competition. Thought so.

MSNBC going wild right now writing the narrative that Biden is "in Washington but not 'of' Washington" continuing the overly hyped pro Obama stance. They also say he's aplus because he's from the NE which is idiotic because there is no region no more solidly behind Obama. A VP has to be from somewhere, you know.

Hey, he's got plusses and two cheers.

The petulance of Obama? Honestly, Susan, you Hilltards crack me up.
