Read this, the headline is "Obama: I’m no V.P.". That’s not just the biased framing of the journalist, it captures Obama’s words. My unsolicited advice is this: if you are a political candidate, proclaiming "I am not X" is not much better than admitting "I am X." Either way it frames the debate. And avoid phrases like "If I’m not ready [for the Presidency]…" Why not punch back with: "A President needs to do at least two things. First, read the will of the voters. Second, figure out which country in a region is winning the race for influence and which country is coming in second. This kind of talk is a sign that Hillary Clinton can do neither. I’m running for President, while she is busy failing arithmetic."
I know I promised, way back when, no candidate blogging, but alas every now and then some things just bug me.
