Some interesting names are been touted for Hillarys vp. It seems that she isnt going to pick Obama or Edwards and probably knows who it will be.

I think Wesley Clark will play a big role in the Clinton administration. Perhaps not vice-president. If the radicals of the party dont unite behind her after the primary then maybe she will be forced to do it and select clark.

Vilsack and Bayh are interesting once. Clealry this is a bill idea. Pick a guy that has been a solid governor from a midwest state; Indiana and Iowa. The same goes with Tom Daschle but south dakota nearly jumped of a cliff last year with its abortion vote and perhaps running daschle along with a senate race isnt the best idea.

The interesting one in my mind is Bob Graham. He was against the Iraq war, but has been a firm backer of the Clintons for a longtime. He has solid credentials on foreign policy and clearly understands the meat and potatoes on the issues. Plus he endorses another philosophy that the clintons hold; make the republicans forcus their resources on florida. however, if romney wins the nomination i have a feeling jeb could get the call. so its a big risk for the clintons as they have to throw first.

the safest bet is probably Vilsack. If the Clintons are going to lose anyway its Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. have a simple man who lived and governed in the region for a long time. he can carry iowa, help wisconsin and minnesota in the rural parts.

i say vilsack.

I like Wesley Clark and then Evan Bayh, it will give her the needed military credentials to help her in southern OH and northeastern NM and southeastern IA.

Bayh or Richardson - Either lock up the midwest with Bayh or NM, NV and CO with Richardson.

Currently it looks like Clinton/Vilsack which would be one of the weakest tickets if you ask me ...

Governor Bill Ritter of Colorado, showing she is serious about expanding the Democratic appeal westward.

a lot will want this, especically the lefties and Daily Kos types, but what does he bring to the general. They will still vote for her and she will still win IL and 90%+ of the african american vote.

Richardson gives you international experience, Latino cred and southwest cred. He should help with AZ, NV, NM, and CO.

Warner also gives some help in the south and with conservative independents. Would probably bring in VA and WV and help keep FL in play.

Ritter has issues with unions and is pro-life. He can't be chosen.

Wayyyyy out there, but Jim Webb or Tim Kaine. Mark Warner's also a possibility, but I think voters would rather have two figures that still hold an office on a ticket. Webb would be a good placeholder veep, I believe. He'd be close to 70 after two terms of Hillary, and I don't believe he'd run then.
