Count Ralph Nader as unimpressed by the crop of supposed finalists to be Barack Obama’s running mate.
“I don’t think he’s that dumb,” said Nader, commenting on widespread speculation that Obama’s choices are down to Sens. Joe Biden, Evan Bayh, or Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.
The smart pick, according to Nader, is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Nader phoned into Politico Tuesday afternoon to offer his prediction that a surprise nod to Clinton is actually what Obama has in mind—never mind the talk of mistrust between the Clintons and Obama.
Hillary does not want VP.
Hillary wants that center seat.
She might take VP as a consolation prize, but Obama has to know he signs his own death warrant with Hillary in the #2 slot.
After all, look what happened to the guy who wanted that Senate seat Hillary sits in now!
