The Buzz

From the staff of the Tampa Bay Times

Vice president Bob Graham

18

February

BobgrahamObamaBill Nelson is already getting mentioned as a potential vice presidential pick for Hillary Clinton (Mark Shields yesterday threw out Nelson and Ohio's Ted Strickland), and the Buzz about Obama is that he needs a seasoned, reassuring figure with political, national security, and/or chief executive experience (General Anthony Zinni, Joe Biden, Bill Richardson?).

We'd offer another name for Obama's list: Bob Graham. He has experience beating Charlie Crist in Florida, knows something about reading a National Intelligence Estimate, is a hawk who came down against authorizing force in Iraq just as Obama did, and has said good things about Obama. And somehow we doubt that the 71-year-old McCain would take a shot about the age, 70, of Graham.

What do you think?
