Misleading Headlines: Obama Still Doesn’t Have A Date To The Prom

cnnedwardsobama.jpg Oh, CNN, he did not. This looky-here headline implies that John Edwards gave Barack Obama the Heisman after the Democratic nominee asked him to be his running mate. What does CNN’s story actually say? Edwards is doing the de rigeur political courtship thing: “Oh no, not for me, thanks anyway, though, gee shucks,” whilst likely angling for a spot with more punch and less profile inside an Obama cabinet. Should have read “Ticker: Edwards would say no to being Obama’s VP,” but then again, I wouldn’t have clicked on something so dull, so I guess CNN wins.
