Veep buzz for Patty

Skeptical Brother:
The second tier would be the Hillary people. Some of her peeps ain’t bad. Washington Senator Patty Murray comes to mind. With 16 years on the Hill, she is a senior member of the Senate and has the experience to aid and guide Obama like few others do. A solid progressive, she is also pragmatic and determined. She ain’t no great shakes in the speech-making department, but she can work on that. Her personal story is very interesting and inspirational and she would make a good addition.
Why didn't anyone around here think of this? It seems unlikely, but on paper at least, Patty looks pretty good as a potential running mate. Her early Senate vote against the Iraq war is on message, too.
