Obama Wants Someone Who is Mad

From The Chicago Tribune

|Chicago Tribune correspondents

RALEIGH, N.C. — During an evening event in Raleigh, Obama said he was looking for a running mate who is independent, has “integrity” and got into politics “for the right reasons.”

“I want somebody who is mad right now that people are losing their jobs and is mad right now that people are seeing their incomes decline,” Obama said. “That’s the kind of person that I want.”

Obama is scheduled to travel on a bus tour across North Carolina and Virginia on Wednesday, while the latter part of his week remains unscheduled and offers a possible window for an announcement.
