Blitzer: "You want to be president or you want to be vice president?"
Obama: "Well, you don't run for vice president."
Blitzer: "So what does that mean? You want to run for president?"
Obama: "I answered the question, Wolf. I've got to go vote."

Run, Obama, Run!
On CNN's "The Situation Room" on December 6, Senator Barack Obama (D-IL), was also asked about a run for the White House in 2008 by anchor Wolf Blitzer:
plez sez: I like Barack Obama as a presidential candidate in 2008 because I feel that he is a fresh alternative to the stale re-treads currently in the Democratic stable (Kerry, Gore, Edwards, etc.). Unfortunately, I also get a "Flavor of the Month" feeling about him and wonder how much luster will be left on his now-twinkling star after 2 years of media scrutiny. The media is going to all over him like white-on-rice until the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary in 2008! You have to remember how Gov. Howard Dean was basically a shoo-in before his early primary losses in 2004.
