    I've been an Obama supporter from the beginning. But, I'm starting to lose my *excitement* for Obama. Instead of being a new agent of change, I feel like I'm being sold the same old goods in new packaging.... Kinda like the X-Files, I want to believe....but I'm stuck in Trust No One....

    Therefore, it is likely that the VP will be Biden.

    What about George Obama? If Barack can't help his half blood brother in Kenya who lives in a shack and on $1 a day, what makes you think he can help America???? Pathetic...

    Its Not Hilary Clinton Either! Obama Was Gracious Enough To Give Her The Bad News With A 3 Am Phone Call Letting Her Know She Wasn't Even Vetted!

    No wonder Hillary wasn't picked, it is obvious that no one wants Obama to lose more than Mr and Mrs Clinton.

    I'm glad its not Kaine in a way, think he'd be alright, but Biden seems like a better choice to me!

    Will the VP be a TAX AND SPEND liberal?

    More TAXES, Tax the rich, rich is bad, Democrats will make everyone poor.

    MORE TAXES, the goverment know best for you.

    Thank God we have a real American running for president.

    I hope Obama will pick eighter Sebelius, Napolitano or Biden. All three have great experince and have good values.

    I like Kaine also, but would not like him as a vp because he dont support even civil unions. That kind of values are not good enoghf for a democratc vp i think.

    That's okay Mr. Kaine. There is still a wealth of work to be done. You will certainly find an appropriate place to deal with AXIS OF EVIL as we now call it the Rethuglican Party.

    Loyal to the BITTER end!
