Carper For Veep

The good people at the Delaware Grapevine are quoting Senator Carper as lobbying to get tapped as the running mate for whoever secures the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008. While Delaware's other senator, the Balding Biden, is openly discussing his aspirations for higher office and making appearances on the Daily Show when he's not grandstanding in some sort of senate committee, Carper has proven himself to be a more diplomatic statesmen. Biden might sound better on tape, but Carper is by far the more genuine and down to earth politician. He's probably the kind of pol that would never make it jumping straight into the most glaring spot light. But he'd make a great choice as a running mate for someone (besides Biden obviously) which could elevate his profile even more and perhaps even get him into the Oval Office someday. And even if you aren't a Democrat, consider, he'd be better than Biden, right?

It looks like Michelle Collins will pick up the mantle for the Repubs against Carper:

That makes sense. Only someone w/ deep pockets could stand a chance.

The problem is that Carper can't string a coherent sentence together to save his soul. Listening to him talk is painful!

You mean being a nice guy isn't enough to make the 2nd highest office in the nation?

Break artist has identified Carper's one greatest drawback. There's been times he's been plenty coherent and without any stuttering problems. There's been times he definitely hasn't been. Can good ideas and sensible politics trump his deficiencies in charisma and public speaking? Well, it hasn't hurt our current Pres.
