|My List of Possible Dem VP's|
|Posted by: Matt Lewis at 9:22 AM|
I don't spend too much time thinking about the Dem Primaries, but unless something dramatic changes, we're looking at facing Hillary. As such, here are my top 5 Dem VP predictions for Hillary:
1. Evan Bayh - This former Indiana governor endorsed Hillary, gave the key note at the 1996 Dem national convention, and is highly-regarded.
2. Mark Warner - The popular former Virginia governor unexpectedly decided not to run for president in '08. Might he have made a deal with Hillary? Perhaps complicating things, he is currently seeking the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by John Warner.
3. Bill Richardson - This Hispanic governor from a South-Western state could be a real asset to Hillary. Still, one has to wonder if his presidential bid has helped -- or hurt -- his chances.
4. Ted Strickland - The current governor of Ohio was blessed to follow a woefully inept Republican governor. Because of this, and the fact that Ohio is perhaps the most important electoral state in the country (arguably), he is in contention.
5. Barack Obama - This is the only non-governor on my list. Many insiders have ruled out a Hillary/Obama ticket. But it's not unheard of for former political enemies (Kennedy/Johnson, Reagan/Bush, Dole/Kemp, etc.) to patch things up for the good of the party.
Update: Wes Clark? One of my fellow Townhaller's says it's going to be Clinton/Clark.
