It is either Bayh or Richardson. Strickland is too old. Obama-Bayh ticket will be similar to the Clinton-Gore-92 race

I think Ed might have a shot, but it would be tough to get him to accept. He is a mainstream liberal who is a great speaker and fundraiser, and would add a minority to the ticket if Hillary is the nominee.

True, however, I remember he said in like 2005 that he wouldn't be a Veep.

Clark or Webb i think the the most likely picks for Hill with mccain as the nom.

Or Obama-I don't think that we should underestimate his importance on a potential ticket.

"not a chance we will see obama as a VP to hill...noooo wayyyy" - GavinBrown

I think theres a big possibility that Obama could be Hillarys running mate. She might have to unite the party and this might be the only way she can do it.

First off you have to be in touch with realilty and reality is that Feingold will never be tapped for VP, hes too liberal and Biden is a more likely pick for Sec of State.

I doubt Obama will be Hillary's running mate but if Hillary is the nominee she will have to unite the African American base behind her and John Lewis would not be a bad pick for VP, Kerry considered him in 2004.

Someone has removed Jim Webb like a million billion times, yet have left unrealistic people on the list. I think we need to chill with removing people from hypothetical appointments such as this.

If I were hill and had to pick an african american, Id go with Harold Ford Jr....however, she wont need 2, the base will get behind her regardless!

GavinBrown: If I were hill and had to pick an african american, Id go with Harold Ford Jr.

You would encourage her to pick a former black Congressman from TN who is also a statewide loser with a family that is closely tied to political corruption? If you need a letter of reference to be Clinton's chief strategist in this primary campaign I'd be glad to give you a letter.

If Hillary goes with an african american, I say John Lewis is the man. He's from Georgia, a longtime civil rights leader and longtime member of Congress. Lewis would be a great Vice President.

Whomever added Sen. Webb was right to do so, Webb will most likely be on the short list. He brings Virginia to the table, served in the Reagan administration and has a military backround.

I added Webb, because someone else speculated him. I don't think he's a likely pick, but I'm similarly getting tired of those removing candidates because of their personal feelings.

But according to Hillary!, the Reagan Administration had no ideas and to suggest otherwise in tantamount to treason against the Democratic Party.

I'm pretty sure Hillary never said Reagan had no ideas, but that's ok. I don't pretend to understand your pathologically obsessive need to contrive things about her, but I acknowledge and respect it nonetheless.

If Hillary is the nominee, you can forget about Sebelius as the veep. An all-woman ticket would go down in November- and rightfully so.

Did you acquire your sexism from your father, or was it the result of a mother who abandoned you as a child, or did it come about by some other means?

If Obama is the nominee Sebelius will make the short list but your right unfortunatley two women on the same ticket would not do well, I hope this will change in my lifetime.

If Clinton wins the nomination, I think it comes down to Jim Webb, Wes Clark and Evan Bayh. I would like to see John Lewis on the ticket if Clinton gets it but don't think she is that bold.

For both Obama and Clinton, I think Joe Biden would nicely compliment the ticket. Maybe more so for Obama than Clinton because of geographic reasons, but regardless he would bring 36 years of Senate and foreign policy experience to the ticket. Also, Mike Easley, the two-term outgoing Governor of North Carolina may be a potential darkhorse for both.

I've thought the same thing, but I have the fear he'd just be one of those "good on paper" candidates. Still, it's no easy feat to be re-elected in a Southern state in 2004 with 55% after raising taxes.
