Chicago Tribune columnist Mary Schmich today shares an on-target, tongue-in-cheek perspective of Barack Obama's VP-announcement-by-texting maneuver.
Her hilarious, and honest, headline: "Barack's using me, but I'm in it for the text"
Unlike Mary, as I noted in a post last week, I've opted to get that news flash at some point shortly after the Text Read 'Round The World.
We live in a different era than, say, the one in which Jimmy Carter selected Walter Mondale as his vice president. That pick certainly came with about 1/1,000,000th the anticipation of Obama's running-mate.
In related non-news, John McCain has not yet picked his VP, either.
