Yet More Veeping
Brooks makes a few veep suggestions for Obama:
Sam Nunn and Tom Daschle seem to fit the bill. Nunn is one of those senior Democrats (like David Boren and Bob Kerrey) who left the Senate lamenting the dumbed-down nature of modern politics. Daschle was more partisan as majority leader, but he is still widely trusted and universally liked. As experienced legislators, both could take Obama’s lofty hopes and translate them into nitty-gritty action.
Daschle is dull; Nunn a social reactionary, alas. Larison, as is his habit, scoffs.
