9. That's an interesting analysis. I agree that when he says he wants
someone who will help him fundamentally change how business is done in DC, that pretty much rules out folks like Biden and Dodd and Bayh and Hillary. That means a Washington outsider--probably a Gov.--OR a newer Senator like McCaskill or Sherrod Brown, but everyone would say, "who?" Plus those folks don't have much experience either. It is a puzzle.
