I think it’s a longshot, but former Ga. Senator Sam Nunn’s name is being mentioned as a potential VP pick for Obama:
But columnist George Will proposed this as a possibility:
“You can use your nomination to address one of your perceived weaknesses. And the vulnerability of the Obama campaign is that there could be a national security event during this next nine months, eight nine months.
In which case you can pick Sam Nunn — great national security credentials, and he’s from Georgia where the turnout down there in the primary might at least give you the illusion that you might make that state competitive……”
Nunn has been out of politics for a long time now and voter’s memories are short. Nunn would be a valuable asset for Obama in the White House but I just don’t see how he helps Obama win.
