Hey McCain's lack of internet knowledge (he's just learning to go online) was deemed a complete non issue here, but Obama's texting is an issue?

Chet Edwards?
Posted: 12:48 PM ET
Obama vetted Chet Edwards for the VP spot.
Obama vetted Chet Edwards for the VP spot.

(CNN) — Texas Rep. Chet Edwards confirms to CNN Barack Obama's presidential campaign has vetted him for the No. 2. spot on the Democratic presidential ticket.

Edwards also told CNN Obama has not spoken to him in recent days about his VP choice.




Dear God, let it be this guy. Another guy nobody has ever heard of, a state senator and a U.S. congressman with no foreign policy experience. Sounds familiar...

And don't tell me Obama thinks he can pick up Texas by adding this guy.

BREAKING FROM AP: Congressman Chet Edwards, the Texas Democrat who represents President George W. Bush's district, is a "finalist" in the veepstakes, according to an Associated Press report.

"Democratic officials say that Edwards was one of the few Democrats whose background was checked by Obama's campaign, and he was a finalist for the job."

Edwards has been favored by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a vice presidential candidate, and his conservative record and background on veterans' issues could help Obama fill out his ticket.

AP says Obama’s choice is imminent – “hours away.”

On the day before Barack Obama is expected to appear with his running mate, is the McCain camp leaking?

Time’s Mark Halperin claims to have sources saying it’s going to be Mitt.

“2 Republican sources say McCain has apparently settled on Romney as his pick, but no offer has been made.”

Certainly not as trivial as Sen. McCain's "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iran" comment, right? Smugness about death and war also does not sit well with people.

At least Chet Edwards sounds like a true blood, red, white and blue American.

Chet Edwards would be an interesting pick.

It would keep the focus on Obama, the top of the ticket.


In 2000, the RNC realized they could not win with W alone,
so they went for the 'gravitas', and chose Cheney
to take some of the focus off of the inexperienced W.

You should have teased us a little bit

You should have said: 'The name begins with B'

And then I would have responded

Is it Barbara Bush????
