Hope & Fear & Unity Pony DeathWatch

I remember waiting for the O.J. Simpson verdict to be announced.

I remember how I felt after it was announced, too.

Waiting for Obama's VP announcement is triggering traumatic memories of that period of on-tenterhooks waiting.

I'm really worried for my party, and for my country, hoping for the best and fearing the worst.

And I'm not the only one.

I'm not.

Apparently Joe Biden is "not the guy"... and I'm not surprised. Still thinking it might be Sebelius, but who knows? Certainly not the pundits.

However, I'm much more excited that Rachel Maddow will be getting her own show, woo! The only thing better than that would be if she was the VP pick...

Poblano (Nate Silver) does a good job today at addressing one of my concerns about how the Hillary as VP nominee scenario might play out.

I think she would be the smart choice. Quite a sacrifice for her to make, of course, since it's such a thankless job, but if she's willing to make it, why not?

I think that ticket would throw quite a wrench in the Republican attack machine. Attack him, they're racist; attack her, they're sexist. Win-win.

On the other hand, should he pick Sebelius because she has a vagina, I'll really be vomiting blood. Hope that wisdom will prevail.

I don't know if Hillary would really want the job or not, but I bet she wouldn't turn it down. However, if Obama picks Sebelius, I think his choice will have more to do with his opinion of her and her politics than the fact that she's a woman. Of course, if Obama picks a man instead, he'll get blasted for not picking a woman. Whatever, I'd much rather have Sebelius there than Bayh or Biden.
