MSNBC is reporting that James Johnson has stepped down from the Barack Obama VP selection committee…
John F. Kerry shows his exquisite sense of timing again: Kerry Defends Obama Veep Vetter.
CHICAGO — John Kerry defended Barack Obama’s Vice Presidential vetter James Johnson today.
“Jim Johnson is a very experienced, very discrete, very capable individual who is performing a voluntary function without pay, without any interest,” Kerry said on a conference call. “He’s not seeking a job and he is acting completely independently to gather information about somebody.”
Johnson served on Kerry’s vice presidential search committee in 2004.
I guess someone finally vetted the vetter. Well, at least he’s still got Eddie Vedder.
