Nader Endorses and Predicts Clinton as Obama's VP

He says that's what his sources are telling him - that all the talk about Biden, Bayh etc. is just a smokescreen to hide the big news that Clinton is the Veep choice.

Given Obama's recent drop in the polls, and the continued resistance on the part of some Clinton supporters to swing behind Obama, this wouldn't hurt Obama in my view. Maybe Biden will step in as Secretary of State.

Here's the news story on Nader's endorsement of Clinton. If it comes true we can thank Rush Limbaugh for keeping Clinton elevated in the primaries, lol....

Ralph Nader says he thinks Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton would be Democrat Barack Obama's best choice for a vice presidential running mate.

Nader, an independent presidential candidate himself and consumer advocate, indicated he doubts that Obama will select Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia or Sens. Joe Biden of Delaware or Evan Bayh of Indiana, Politico reported Wednesday.

"I don't think he's that dumb," said Nader. "He just has to swallow hard and do what JFK did" in 1960 when he chose rival Lyndon Baines Johnson.

Nader says his own sources lead him to believe that the New York senator remains in serious contention.

In Nader's opinion, Biden, Bayh or Kaine would not help Obama politically, adding that speculation about the three is merely a "smokescreen."

Nader says if Obama wants a traditional white male politician, former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn would be a better pick.
