I’m very pleased to hear this:
Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has requested information from Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd as part of its search for a possible vice presidential candidate.
The former White House hopeful and Connecticut lawmaker indicated Wednesday that he has been approached by the campaign. “There’s been some inquiries, yeah,” Dodd said. “They ask for a lot of stuff. I’ll leave it there.”
I don’t think Dodd would be a vote magnet or anything, and there may be some issues in his past that would cause some controversy. But Sen. Dodd is one of the four or five most progressive senators we have, and he’s been fantastic on civil liberties. Obama would gain a lot of confidence and good will by going with Dodd.
