LOS ANGELES, July 21 (Xinhua) -- Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards said here on Monday that he would "seriously" consider being Barack Obama's running mate, if asked.
"Anything that I'm asked to do by Senator Obama, either as a presidential candidate or as the next president of the Untied States, I would take seriously and seriously consider," said Edwards.
Edwards ran for vice president in 2004 and ended his own presidential bid six months ago.
The question on whether he would consider being the vice-presidential contender on the Obama ticket arose during a news conference on affordable housing.
But Edwards said "What I have said many times now is first, I'm not seeking the job. I don't expect to be asked."
“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."
