Having become the Democratic Party’s presumptive presidential nominee, Barack Obama (D-IL) is now thinking about his choice for a vice presidential running mate. And that has started political observers considering names for an Obama cabinet should the Illinois Senator win election to the White House in November.
One name that should not be on the list is that of Missouri’s junior U.S. Senator – Claire McCaskill (D-MO). McCaskill, who was elected to the Senate in 2006, says she enjoys what she is doing and does not want to do anything else.
McCaskill, one of the earliest supporters of Obama in his bid for the nomination, says she has, “No interest, whatsoever, in a cabinet position.” She adds she looks forward to working in the Senate for the changes Obama wants to make.
