Well, what better way for Obama to win over voters who refuse to vote for a black candidate than with a former Klansman?
And McCain wants to run on experience? I mean, McCain may have been in a North Vietnamese POW camp when Obama was still a kid in Indonesia, sure, but Byrd joined Congress in 1953. At the time, McCain was just a bratty jock at Episcopal High School in Alexandria.
Obama-Byrd sounds like a winner to me.
