Barack Obama doesn’t just know better than all those bitter, gun-slinging, God-clinging small town Americans what’s good for them. He also knows better than his as-yet-unnamed would-be Vice President.
The rookie Senator, who married Michelle Robinson Obama, spent 20 years at a church pastored by Jeremiah Wright, bought real estate from his fund-raiser Tony Rezko, and picked Jim Johnson to head up a committee to vet candidates for the second-most powerful job in the world, has hired Patti Solis Doyle, a fired aide to Hillary Clinton, as Chief-of-Staff to his vice-presidential nominee. A Clinton donor called the move the “biggest f— you I have ever seen in politics“.
But it’s not just an insult to Sen. Clinton. It’s also an insult to the ultimate Democrat VP pick–a clear signal that Sen. Obama intends to be the one calling the shots, without input from the people most affected.
And if the 46 percent of Americans who say that Sen. Obama doesn’t have enough expreience to be president were hoping that he might balance the ticket with someone who does, this ought to be a big, red, 57-star flag.
