Our first international Veep

Amidst a flurry of rumors that have been swirling around punditry circles over the past week,  Barack Obama has now confirmed reports that he has officially decided on his running mate. While talking to journalists Thursday afternoon, Barry played coy, refusing to name the person or even say whether the lucky winner has been notified yet:

“I won’t comment on anything else until I introduce our running mate to the world,” he said. “That’s all you’re going to get out of me.”

Um… shouldn’t that be America, Senator? Or has Germany become a swing state now?

Concerning your last statement, you misinterpreted his statement suggesting that by saying “the world” Obama is insinuating he thinks the world has or should have a say in the United State’s electoral process. In reality, considering America’s sphere if international influence, his word choice suggests he is aware that other countries might be interested in who might be vice president. The crux of the matter is the difference between “interested” and “influence”, of which I believe Obama fully understands.
