Another VP Announcement

I’m probably not the first or last person to announce this.

In order to ensure full disclosure, reduce the clutter of blogosphere speculation, and give people something more important to focus on, I have decided to release critical information that is guaranteed to put everyone’s mind at rest.

I am officially NOT going to be a candidate for Vice President.

At least, not during the 2008 election.

I have verified that both the Obama and McCain campaigns are still not taking my calls, so my confidence level is very high on this announcement.

Besides, I really like my current job.

There are a lot more qualified candidates.

The vetting process is likely to expose events in my past that I’m not proud of.

I want to devote more time to my family.

I think I can contribute more effectively in my current role.

I would have been honored to be asked (but I wasn’t).

I think I’ve managed to scoop EVERYONE on this story!

I’m not much for speculating at this point.  I’m sure that in 6 weeks, we’ll all know for sure who the VP candidates will be.  Current thought is that we’ll know within 2 weeks, but I’m hedging.  But really, what is the value of continuing to run in circles on this topic.  Much less effort is required if we just wait for the answer and THEN make a big fuss about it.

Don’t you think?
