Over the past nine months, Sen. Barack Obama has repeatedly made two promises to the American public — change and unity.
With the Democratic primary looming close and his nomination as the party’s candidate sealed, it is time for him to start living up to those promises by announcing the person he will have as his vice-presidential candidate.
It’s becoming clear to a lot of people that Sen. Hillary Clinton — a remnant of her husband’s era that interrupted the Bush administrations — does not represent the kind of change Americans want. And having two Democratic senators on the ticket would not represent any real diversity in political ideology, although gender and race would be well reflected.
