Senior advisers to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) on Monday sought to reconcile the campaigns assertion that rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) has not passed the commander-in-chief test with the Clintons hints in recent days that the New York senator would tap Obama as a running mate.
Howard Wolfson, Clinton's chief spokesman, said during a conference call with reporters that Clinton would not pick a running mate who has not met the national security threshold as Clintons military advisers and Wolfson put it on the call but that it is possible Obama could meet that threshold by this summer's Democratic convention.
Now I would have to agree that he doesn't meet the standard, although Hillary is only a marginal improvement in this respect, but how exactly is he supposed to them meet this standard by July? What has he not learned in the past 5 decades that he can make up in the next 4 months? Is there some type of correspondence course he needs to take?
