At 6:00 today a local TV news story dared to raise the proposition of our own Governor Joe Manchin as a candidate for Vice-President or even President. This is not the first time I have heard such musings.
In the height of the Sago mine drama my co-worker walked into my office and told me to note the time and date because he was going to be the first to predict "Manchin for President 2008." I scoffed. Not that I don't think he could have what it takes, but that he's from West Virginia, for crying out loud. That would be like a governor from Georgia or Arkansas getting elected to the White House. How crazy would that be?
