Obama’s VP: The Perfect Choice


I was listening to the To the Best of Our Knowledge podcast entitled Sturm and Twang and I had an epiphany on the perfect person to run on the ticket with Barack Obama.

This candidate brings to the table:

  • Extremely popular with backcountry rednecks AND with freewheeling hippies!
  • Would help bring in red states like Texas and Tennessee while also appealing to disenchanted progressives who lost interest when Dennis Kucinich dropped out.
  • Brings the age and wisdom of decades of political activity, yet is still a Washington outsider.
  • Should Obama win the election he’s going to have deal with the massive National Debt. This VP candidate has experience paying off huge debts!
  • Would be greatly entertaining on the campaign trail and totally win any debates.
  • Is pretty much already beloved by Americans.

If you haven’t guessed already, the candidate is none other than the Red Headed Stranger,

Willie Nelson!

I doubt anyone from the Obama campaign will read this, but if you do make sure to tap Willie for VP. Oh do!

    Other selling points for Willie:
    1) The environment is a hot issue. Willie’s got green cred, putting his money where his mouth is with his alternative fuel tour bus.
    2) Concert touring and campaign trailing are a lot alike. Willie’s skills should be transferable.
    3) Few people of done more for family farmers. The family farm is an American icon.
