DescriptionA political analyst has predicted Kay Hagan will be President Obama's vice presidential running mate in 2012.

Alan Steinberg, who writes at PolitickerNJ.com, wrote about a series of events that could lead to Hagan be chosen for the position.

Steinberg said he believes Obama will announce before the 2012 election that he will appoint Vice President Joe Biden as his Secretary of State to replace Hillary Clinton. Clinton has indicated she will not return for another term. Then, he says Obama will tap Hagan two weeks before the Democratic convention in Charlotte.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

"There are two key reasons why Obama will select Hagan. First, as I will explain below, North Carolina is the decisive state in the 2012 election: the Presidential candidate who wins North Carolina will win the election. Second, in unseating former North Carolina Senator Elizabeth Dole in 2008, Hagan demonstrated superb political and communication skills that would make her a definite asset to the Obama reelection campaign."
