“I gotta tell you the choice of 50 Cent as a Republican VP is truly brilliant.” Says election watcher Kenneth Burns of the New America Institute. “50 Cent totally neutralizes the ‘Obama factor’ that many on our side have been fretting about. 50 Cent brings so much to the table that compliments McCain. He is young, black, entrepreneurial, and the lets face it, the camera loves him.”
