My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Chris Matthews Stands In Front of the Train 

Hat tip: CQ

MSNBC's Chris Matthews: "You are a big Barack supporter, right, Senator?"

State Sen. Watson: "I am. Yes, I am."

Matthews: "Well, name some of his legislative accomplishments. No, Senator, I want you to name some of Barack Obama's legislative accomplishments tonight if you can."

State Sen. Watson: "Well, you know, what I will talk about is more about what he is offering the American people right now."

Matthews: "No. No. What has he accomplished, sir? You say you support him. Sir, you have to give me his accomplishments. You've supported him for president. You are on national television. Name his legislative accomplishments, Barack Obama, sir."

State Sen. Watson: "Well, I'm not going to be able to name you specific items of legislative accomplishments."

Matthews: "Can you name any? Can you name anything he's accomplished as a Congressman?"

State Sen. Watson: "No, I'm not going to be able to do that tonight."

Matthews: "Well, that is a problem isn't it?"

I would imagine the Obama campaign is going to start putting out some talking points on this little problem pretty soon.

In a similar vein, I had a thought last night: the single most logical choice for a running mate for Obama at this point is . . . . . . . .Gen. Wesley Clark. Can anybody think of anyone better? Shores up his obvious weakness on national security and inexperience at . . . well, everything . . . .while completely guaranteeing that he won't ever be overshadowed.
