Obama's Minor Error

Every time Obama wins a state, the Hillary campaign shrewdly changes the subject by creating some new issue. This time, after his Wyoming win and before his almost certain Mississippi win, they have done it again. They have got the press talking about the whole "Obama as a Veep" issue. Panel after panel is dissecting it.

Obama, who usually is good with responses has, in my opinion, made a minor error. He reacted at length, ridiculing Hillary's chutzpah at making such insinuations despite trailing and despite calling him unprepared. He has played into her hands.

Maybe a better reaction would have been - Yes, Bill might be right. The two of us on a ticket would be unstoppable. So maybe I will consider an "Obama-Clinton" ticket after winning the nomination.
