Plouffe Gives Hints on Veep Selection


Obama’s campaign manager says in press briefing at DNC’s headquarters Wednesday that he doesn’t think the Veep candidate’s ability to carry a state will be “a factor in the selection.”

Adds that Obama will choose someone “qualified to be president and someone who’ll be a partner in governing.” Cites Dick Cheney, Al Gore as models.

Plus: Also says Libertarian candidate Barr could be a spoiler for McCain in Alaska, Georgia and possibly tip the scales to Obama.
