Clark/Dean or Clark/Richardson wouldn't have been bad.

A Senator or Congressman might have been a good pick.  NATO gave Clark executive experience, but he would need a good point man to get bills through the legislature.  Kerry, Durbin, Biden, and Gephardt come to mind.

Clark/Dean... there you go "Inexperience X2" that could be their campaign slogan. He would've picked Hillary Clinton DUH.

I'd say he probably picks either Kerry or Richardson. Dean didn't have any foreign affairs experience, which could have hurt the ticket, while Biden made too many gaffes. Kerry and Richardson both had large amounts of both foreign and domestic policy experience and that would have been what Clark would have been looking for. And Hillary Clinton would have been too inexperienced for Clark to pick her, not to mention that it would be awkward to have a Former First Lady as your VP pick (that's probably part of the reason why Obama didn't pick her).

Maybe this would be when Even Bayh would actually be picked. He's a Senator who was Governor for 8 years as well. From a midwest state.

Clark was a general. That's a lot of experience.

You can't say Clark was inexperienced, though.

You can't legitimately say Clark was inexperienced, though, especially on foreign affairs.

Bayh would be a good choice, though some liberals would be upset. Nonetheless, a Clark/Bayh ticket would have the highest variables in terms of swings. So good on paper, and yet the potential for an epic fail.

Honestly, probably another one of the '04 contenders like Kerry, Edwards or Gephardt, just as Kerry ultimately chose between Clark, Gephardt and Edwards. Richardson really isn't a very talented candidate and he was only two years into his governorship. Bayh would have caused Dems to lose a Senate seat in a pivotal race.
