    Here's to hoping it's Biden. Good Op-Ed from today.

    Want it to be Richardson. Think it'll be Bayh.

    Did you see the interview this morning Harry Smith asked him the most important question at the very end. What will Michell be wearing. Barak laughed and said that was a secret that was more tightly held than that of his VP.
    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    I think it will be Bayh, but I liked the joke on Bob and Tom this morning that said something like I don't think Obama will pick Evan Bayh because why would Barack want the stickers to say Obama...Bye.

    Good stuff.

    If he picks Richardson he MAY have a chance at getting my vote.

    I think it will be Biden. He has the gravitas in foreign policy. Plus, he can be more of an attack dog, a role that Obama can't seem to pull off. As for Bayh-he too much of the same-senator from a midwestern state. As for Ruchardson-who I think would be an excellent choice-he will wind up with a high position in the Cabinet.

    Here's another person hoping it will be Richardson, though I think the chances of that are slim to none. It'll probably be Bayh.

    Before the primaries started, I predicted the Democratic ticket would be Obama-Edwards. That's obviously not going to happen.

    I still think there's a trick up his sleave, and it's going to be Clinton. That would be shocking at this point, and I believe would rally the Democratic base big time. I just don't think Obama has the balls to do it, or he just doesn't want her (and Bill) hovering over him in the Oval Office.

    My safe pick: Biden

    I think I saw a report this morning that Obama's people hadn't vetted Clinton at all...


    Personally, I would love to see Obama-Hillary (if the Dems win) just for the sheer comedic value of having Bill Clinton back in D.C.

    I was a Richardson fan until I realized he mispeaks more than McCain and it some cases out right lies....you should know whether or not the A's drafted you.

    Biden carries some baggage especially with his misspeaks. Plus it will be hard for him to take on the attack dog mantle that a VP does since he is on record being so complementary to McCain..that and no one wants a VP with a comb-over like the one Biden sports.

    I voted Bayh. Obama has been beat up and is losing ground in the polls, he wants to solidify the center and make a safe pick and that is Bayh.

    I'm a Republican, but I'm also a huge political junkie, so here's my take on things.

    If Obama was smart, he'd pick Richardson. This being that Richardson is a little more socially moderate, more credible when it comes to the economy and national security, more patriotic, and can bring in the Hispanic vote, and can help easily carry critical SW states like NV, CO, and NM. But he won't. And I don't think Richardson would want to play second fiddle to Obama anyway.

    I am sincerely hoping he picks Joe Biden since Joe Biden seems so far-left and out of touch and comes from a state that doesn't even matter. It would be like picking John Kerry in my opinion. An oaf with a lot of hot air that has been on the block awhile. I don't think the Obama camp would be so dumb to pick Biden, but maybe they will. And I look forward to a McCain victory in November all the more.

    I really think Obama will pick either Kaine or Bayh. Both seem somewhat moderate, are popular in their home states, are younger like Obama, but seem to bring a more moderate working class ethic to the table, which Obama sorely needs. And finally, these two come from states that appear to be very much in play this year, Virginia and Indiana, and push one of those states even closer to Obama, should they become the VP nominee. I believe that McCain cannot win if he does not win both of those states.

    Obama can't appeal to blue collar men, so whoever it is must be able to drink Hillary under the table, and keep campaigning. Someone like Steve Reeves, the original Herc.
