Do Veep Vetters Matter?
The McCain camp certainly thinks so.
Since The Washington Post ran that story last week alleging that Jim Johnson may have profited off the subprime crisis, the Obama camp has called the story irrelevant and overblown.
In response, McCain spokesperson Tucker Bounds said, “There is nothing ‘overblown and irrelevant’ about millions of Americans facing foreclosure and Barack Obama entrusting his most important decision as a presidential candidate to a man who has accepted millions in special loans from a subprime mortgage lender.”
This could possibly be the first time ever that an opponent has attacked a Veep selection committee member!
