NY Times Columnist Maureen Dowd has an interesting view of the future.
If Barack Obama had chosen Hillary Clinton as his running mate, we would now be looking forward to the greatest night in the history of American politics: the Oct. 2 vice presidential debate between Ma Barker and Sarah Barracuda.
Now, alas, we’ll have to wait until 2012 when the two fiercest competitors on the trail will no doubt face off in the presidential debate, with Palin still riding high from her 2008 field-dressing of Obama
Dowd goes on to predict President McCain will be too worn out to continue beyond 2012. The rest of Ms. Dowd’s column is her usual mix of balderash, but I do hope she’s right about the candidates four years from now.
