Clarence Thomas for....vice president?
I'm afraid I awoke a couple of commuters, and maybe caused someone else to spill their coffee, on the train to NYC this morning when I burst out in laughter reading the conclusion of the column by ever-reliable Bill Kristol in The New York Times this morning floating the name of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as John McCain's running. Here's the passage: "He could persuade the most impressive conservative in American public life, Clarence Thomas, to join the ticket." We had a "Silent Cal" (Coolidge) as president so why not a "Silence Clarence" as Veep?
