As the veepstakes heat up, CNN Political Producer Alan Silverleib weighs the pros and cons of 10 possible choices for each party - from the familiar figures to the dark horses.
yea its a stretch I know
Obama should chose Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island for a running mate. They will do great?
the pundits ought to stop this nonsense of who wins the VP. spot???? Obama has not yet been nominated for the Democrat slot as a contender in the General Elections.What if The incumbent Governor of Florida wins the slot as McCain's supporter.Was there a conspiracy to mess with primary in Florida??We will see and openly debate it before the general election!!
The perfect solution to O's problem: Sibelius – an under qualified woman instead of one that runs circles around him. Don't bite, girls, VOTE MCCAIN and teach the Dem boys a lesson they should have learned long ago. We've waited this long – another 4 years is nothing.
Teddy you are wrong. You put her on the ticket and you will have a Ross Perot mistake. She is too polar, down right cold. Not to mention 4 years of pantsuits.
If Hillary has any real Commitment, she will go Indipendent after June-July... The women don't need a "Foot-peddler" for Obama.... next year 2009...
Hillary for president

"Kathleen Sebilius from Kansas……She will bring to the ticket what Hillary can not."
Absolutely, she will be phenomenal. She is very charismatic and intelligent.

So you want revenge on Obama's supporters by voting for McCain. Its obvious that you are voting on emotion and not on policy. If you were voting on policy, and if Hillary is not the Democrat nominee, then there should be no question that you and 17 million other Clinton faithful should vote for Obama.
Ignore the petty comments from Obama supporters and try to understand that Obama has been very respectful to Clinton and he himself has never suggested that Clinton should quit.
many good choices, already stated : Sebelius,Webb. I will add:
Presumptive nominee Senator Hillary Clinton will probably recieve a lot of pressure to keep Senator Obama in mind for the VP slot, and I have no doubt she is capable of making the right choice for America.
She has many 'qualified' running mates to choose from.
Richardson for Veep. Loaded with foreign policy experience. May attract hispanics and bring a swing state and more. So he sucks at debating and mmay not have the charisma thing. Obabma has more than enough for two.
How about this for a neat twist though...offer Bill Clinton Secretary of State. He gets to keep doing what he has been doing the last few years. He has international creds. Maybe that's enough of a bone for the Clinton's to get them on board. And....unlike if you give Hillary the Veep, you can dump your Secretary of State overboard any time you like (if you can stand a little backsplash!).
i gotta go with Senator.Barack Obama& Senator.Chuck Hagel that would be unstoppable!!!!!!!
I would want Hillary on the ticket because of Bill. Bill figure that Hillary should be the President and not VP. Bill is looking out for all his foreign deals that he want to push through. People wake up, if Hillary is on the ticket raw deal for the USA.
Its amazing how childish us people are. If a candidate of our choice doesn`t win we choose to support the nominee of the other party. Someone has to win someone has to loose. If you a democrat vote democrat, regardly who it is. If we vote for McCain I think we will all regret it, and that`s the truth. I support Obama if he doesn`t get it I`m going to vote for Hillary. This is not a game, this is real life here. He is winning it fair and square. Why are people made at him. If he was losing I know he would have been gotten out of the race, because he knew he couldn`t win. People mad at Obama like he have done something to them, all he is doing is running to be elected like everyone else who runs for President.
Hillary, please don't pick Obama. I like Joe Biden or maybe Joe Lieberman. NO OBAMA!!!
Kathleen Sebilius is the best. The seccond choise that CNN dont have is Arizonas governor, Janet Napolitano. I belive its good too have a woman and think its stupid too say that a mixed man on top is too much, so its needed for a white man. Also i think its stupid too say that a woman as vp who is not Hillary will be terrible. Both of theese woman supported Obama while everyone thoght that Hillary Clinton would win. They took that risk when we know how the Clintons is against those who dont bow for them. I think he should go for a woman that has been with him long, that has had great succes as a governor, that can win a red state and that has long leaderexperience also in the party. Obama/Sebilius :-D
Obama would be best served by Biden but that wont help him in the south.
Obama supposedly is cast as winning or leading in Montana! Hog wash!Hillary supporters get up and vote to prove these biased pundits,that Hillary WILL WIN BIG.
McShame choosing Jindal will be a political suicide. Americans are already mad about high tech jobs being shipped over to India. If you put Jindal, an Indian American, on the ticket, Lou Dobbs of the America would cry and whine that Indians are taking over the second highest job on the land.
I love how everything bad that happens is Hillary and Bill Clintons fault. You Obama people really live in your own little world. If Hillary is not on the ticket I will be voting for McCain.
We know it won't be Hillary. What are women across America going to do, vote for the guy who doesn't support a national health care program, doesn't support ending the war, and doesn't support their right to choose. Good luck with that empty blackmail HRC supporters. Dems will be enjoying your support in Nov.
Not Hillary! As a matter of fact – don't give her any thing!
I am not hearing from many of her supporters they won't vote for Obama if she is not on his ticket! Good luck with that and you people need to stop setting yourself up on Hillary's lies and what she thinks – I know she is bitter and is clinging to the throne – but her and Bill need to go home after June 3rd. Period!
And... don't hire any of Hillary's staffers! Nor... select any of her supporters/senators/Gov. as Obama's VP!
I will trust Obama to make this major selection! As a matter of fact – he has already made his VP selection.
Go Bam! Great to see the Clintons Meltdown!
Anyone on earth other than Hillary would be more viable on Obama's ticket. She and her supporters can go start their own ticket, such as the Opportunists.
