Rove on VP Material...

"With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he's been a governor for three years, he's been able but undistinguished," Rove said. "I don't think people could really name a big, important thing that he's done. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America."
He goes on to say:

"So if he were to pick Governor Kaine, it would be an intensely political choice where he said, `You know what? I'm really not, first and foremost, concerned with, is this person capable of being president of the United States? What I'm concerned about is, can he bring me the electoral votes of the state of Virginia, the 13 electoral votes in Virginia?'"

Of perhaps a short term Governor and Mayor of a tinier town to maybe chase the female or Libertarian vote?

It's just politics.

You know, for the party that spouts fairness and the elimination of bias, your contemptible treatment of Senator Hillary Clinton is stunning. I guess female national candidates in your party will need to step aside for a few more years. As for qualifications, before your regime, FDR selected a haberdasher from Missouri as his vice president and history resoundingly considers President Harry S Truman one of the greatest presidents America has ever had.

Palin is giving 2day access to ABCNews with:
1) NO Ground Rules
2) NO question topic is off limits
3) NO pre-agreement with the network

I thought that was normal but I just found out that OBama and Biden always do PRE Interview agreements so they understand what is coming.

Maybe this is why Palin has Obama talking more about her more than anything else in the last 48hrs.

Ooops, I forgot, she isn't about real change. Keep it up guys you don't even realize how badly you are off your game. Let me end with the Obama's Campaign Manager David Plouffe:

Asked about the findings during a briefing on Monday before the poll was published, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe told a Washington Post reporter, "Well, your poll is wrong."... [source: http://news.yahoo.com/story//nm/20080909/pl_nm/usa_politics_women_dc]

Go Obama - Keep it up.
