Sheldon Whitehouse For President
Has there ever been a better name for a politician than Senator Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island? Are you kidding me? My jaw dropped when I saw him interviewed on Chris Matthews' program Hardball the other day. I didn't even hear what he said (they were discussing the Alberto Gonzalez testimony as it related to the firing of the U.S. attorneys), but he's got my vote. I don't know what the Democrats are thinking, beating around the bush with Obama and Hillary, when this guy clearly has what it takes to end up as the commander-in-chief. I mean, shoot, if we can elect a former baseball GM (and not even a particularly good one) to become president, surely we can get this guy in office. He even has political experience, having now served in the U.S. Senate. I'm not sure if there's a write-in spot for the presidential election, but given the current crop of candidates I might just put Sheldon in there. Perhaps it is a sad commentary when the most appealing political candidate is the one you know least about?
