For John, BLUF: Trolling for comments. Nothing to see here; just move along.
I was laying out my theory for the Democratic Party Presidential pick for 2016 when my wife interrupted and told me it would be Michelle Obama. Then I read this letter in yesterday's edition of The [Lowell] Sun. The Letter Writer, Mike Ferreer, of Groton, also picked the First Lady.
But, notwithstanding these two expert prognosticators, here is my short list and conclusions:
- VP Joe Biden—a very nice man but toooo gaffe prone, otherwise toooo dull.
- SecState Hillary Clinton—a very competent person, but toooo centrist.
- First Lady Michelle Obama (my wife's guess)—The brains of the outfit, but toooo soon.
- Senator Elect Elizabeth Warren—by 2016 more experienced than Senator Obama in 2008, and while we have had a VP with Indian blood, she would be the first Pesident. She would be just right.
NOTE For Gerry: Humor.
