But VP is mostly ceremonial...speeches and what not. Backing up the Pres in the press. They need Ryan in the trenches...smart, honest and brave dude.
Ryan is from a swing state. Wisc is crucial. And Obama knows it. My most recent email from the DNC:
Technically, I didn't win Dinner with Barack. My wife Cathy did, and she picked me as her guest.
I still can't believe our -- OK, Cathy's -- luck. Not many people get to know the President and First Lady: Two incredibly warm, smart, down-to-earth people with their share of hilarious parenting stories. At the end of the night, the President even wrote a note to our babysitter thanking her for watching the boys. Really!
Let's just say I'm going to have a tough time topping this night.
So enter today, then talk everyone you know into doing the same -- and don't forget to be extra nice in case they're considering you as their guest:
John L. Wauwatosa, WI
End of email............
So, who here thinks that it's a coincidence that the winner was from Wisconsin instead of a non-battle ground state?
