Out of the Democratic candidates, I like Richardson most. Hillary seems too…I dunno …hardened, and Obama just doesn’t have the experience in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll vote for either since they seem most likely and I’
ll be happy if either wins, but they’re not my first pick.
I think a Richardson/Obama ticket would be good, but would it sell? Or would there be an urge to temper the “novelty” of a black candidate by pairing him with a “safe” OWM (old white man)? Or perhaps that’s just in my head, not that I think they should do that, but that they would do it to be safe.
Anyway, my debate is, would some people be “scared off” if Obama picked Richardson as opposed to, say, Edwards as his mate?
