...or build bridges out of them...you know to help with internal infrastructure? Would save on taxes if we used witches (which we all know are made of wood) instead of conventional petroleum based building materials
Xvart, I do agree that there must be better qualified (experience, track record, etc) female candidates out there he could have chosen, but no republican women come to mind though. Then again I am not overly well versed in politics.
It just is that in my opinion ANY woman he would have chosen still would have made me think the choice of a woman as VP was more of a political strategy to make this "an election of firsts" for both democrat and republicans. In that regards I do have to admit it was a pretty smooth choice on his part, but I still see it only as a strategy.
