Brooks: Running Mates

Today Brooks takes on running mates and why the current discussion in the talkosphere is headed the wrong way. Brooks talk about how the VP shouldn't be seen as a short term answer to winning a swing state, but a long term investment in good governance. It's nearly impossible to disagree, but I will argue with his take on what Obama needs.

Brooks says he'll need someone seen as an unorthodox liberal with legislative chops that can take lofty rhetoric and turn it into real legislative action. I think he actually needs an ideological liberal driving the agenda with a very bipartisan cabinet in the wings. Thoughts?
