John Deeth Blog: Obama Needs A Woman On The Ticket

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The general election campaign began with Tuesday night's victory
speeches by John McCain and Barack Obama, and when nominations are set
pundits need a new parlor game to play. Thus, the veep-stakes talk is
sure to start. Hillary Clinton's last bastion of ardent supporters,
older white women, face a demographic disappointment in her failure,
and presumptive nominee Obama needs a way to address this. While the
historic identity politics of the 2008 Democratic race have swung more
dramatically in Obama's favor, with his 90% margins with black voters,
it's Clinton who has played the identity politics card more
explicitly.
