Well, at least a lot of folks out there seem to think so. In fact, one dedicated RFK Jr. fan is encouraging like-minded Democrats to bombard Senator Obama with letters/emails asking him to consider Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as his Vice Presidential running mate in 2008.
Of course, we think that’s an excellent idea – and with Bobby’s cousin Caroline Kennedy on Obama’s VP selection committee, it might even be a possibility, however remote at this point. As a longtime Clinton supporter, Kennedy would certainly bring a lot of Hillary voters to the ticket…uh, not to mention all those Kennedy voters!
Here’s a letter we got this week from an RFK Jr. fan who found it on Pearl Jam’s message board and wanted us to pass it on to our readers. If you support this idea, now is the time to take action!
The Democratic party convention starts next month in Denver, so write or call Senator Obama today! Details on how to do it are below:
RFK JR. FOR OBAMA’S VICE PRESIDENT
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while, but I feel this topic is extremely urgent….
Senator Obama is about to choose a running mate soon. Last I heard it was possibly a Gov. Tim Cain. Personally, I have never heard of him.
It suddenly occured to me that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (RFK, JR.) would be the perfect running mate. He is an activist, and environmentalist, Time magazine voted him as one of “Heroes for the Planet” …a Pearl Jam fans’ dream candidate!
Please check out his website. http://robertf.kennedyjr.com/about.html
And a website run by some of Mr. Kennedy’s fans and friends who hope to draft him for President:
Last night, I wrote to Senator Obama recommending he choose Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. for his running mate for Vice President.
Today, I wrote Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and FW’d the same letter I wrote Senator Obama….and asking him if it was okay to throw his name in.
Today, I called Obama Campaign Headquarters and actually talked to a real live person! The HQ phone number is 1-866-675-2008…Press “6” to talk to some very nice people.
The lady I spoke with was very surprised at my choice, and also very excited. RFK, Jr’s cousin Caroline Kennedy, is working on the Obama Campaign.
She quickly got my recommendation off to her supervisor, who wrote back almost immediately.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr, is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, who ran for President in 1968 and Nephew of President John F. Kennedy and Senator Ted Kennedy.
RFK, Jr also hosts a radio show on Air America “Ring of Fire” Sundays.
Then, PLEASE call Obama Headquarters and overwhelm them with phone calls!
This is the first time I have ever got involved in politics….but I feel this strongly about our future.
