A few minutes ago, Attorney General Richard Blumenthal told reporters that U.S. Sen. Chris Dodd is the Barack Obama’s best candidate for vice president.
Blumenthal formerly supported Hillary Clinton for president, so this is at least mildly interesting, If Dodd were to get a new job, Blumenthal could finally run for Senate in 2010, although Republican Gov. Rell would appoint a successor if Dodd were to leave before the end of his term.
Of course this is an academic exercise because Blog-o-rama believes that Dodd’s sweetheart 4.23-percent refinancing rate from the tainted Countrywide Mortgage means Connecticut’s senior senator is out of the Veep picture and maybe anything of substance if the Democrats don’t self destruct as usual and win the presidency.
Toward the end of the event, an unrelated news conference with Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz, Blog-o-rama was just about ready to leave when he decided to ask a final question.
Blogster to Blumenthal: “Dick so among all the pluses would be he could get everyone a lower rate for a re-fi, right?”
Blumenthal didn’t answer.
