…staring at my cell phone, waiting for The Text from The One, I was thinking “Mitch? You know that the one area where “Barack”, as his friends call him, is vulnerable is among hard-core establishment liberals from the northeast. If only “Barack” could shore up his support among white, upper-middle-to-upper-class northeastern liberals, he’d really become a strong “buy”.
And then The Phone beeped.
It was a special offer from my cell phone provider. I erased it.
And then The Phone beeped again. It was The Text from The One, with The Choice!
“Wow“, I thought, “that was weird. But what a choice! “Barack” could have chosen Evan Bayh, to appeal to the more-moderate midwestern vote, the Hillaristas, where he’s traditionally a tad weaker. Or he could have chosen Bill Richardson, and actually brought some common sense to the ticket.”
“But he picked Biden – and by doing so, he not only shored up his Northeastern Urban Institutional Liberal vote, but he also added “foreign policy experience”, because Joe Biden forty-odd years in the Senate where has been utterly wrong on every foreign policy issue from the Cold War on down“.
I nodded my head, satisfied.
And then I pressed The Button to erase The Message.
