    Thank God, the two boring choices are out. Wouldn't it be hilarious if the Obama camp pulled a one-two on the media and picked someone besides Biden, after they'd been stalking the "three main choices" for a whole day like the paparazzi? Man, it would satisfy me if the ticket was Obama/Clinton, just to see the look on CNN's various faces who insisted that she wouldn't be the VP.

    Why would all you Clinton lovers want Hillary for VP?

    What would be the point?

    Obama President, Hillary Supreme Court Justice

    Maybe he picked his half blood brother living in Kenya on $1 a day! Maybe he won't diss him like he did last time he visited and just left him there in his shack!

    Evan Bayh is well loved in Indiana, but he would not be a good Vice President.

    I'm still rooting for Jim Webb....but I'll support anybody that Senator Obama chooses.

    I just can't wait until it's announced that it's NOT Hillary! At that point, can't we just start moving McCain into the White House?

    If it's not Bayh I'll be Biden. He's the only other logical choice. Best of luck!

    Glad to see my senator out of the running. He makes an excellent senator for the great state of Indiana! He supported the RIGHT candidate for this country at this time–Hilary Clinton.

    Obama is trying to use mind control, so everyone keeps thinking about this. disgusting.

    Bayh was never in the running. It would have been a stupid pick if he was. If Obama does not pick somebody with balls, McCain is going to eat his lunch in November. We Independents are really tired of dummies running the country.

    I believe it is Hillary. There is no other choice. This is a winning combo.

    I would have been ok with Bayh but it is Obama's choice.

    Evan Bayh would have been a good choice and it would be interesting to know why he wasn't picked. Question: Why all of this "drama" regarding the annoucement of Obama's choice? Does EVERYTHING have to be on par with American Idol? What a silly state of affairs this is and, I think, it speaks volumes about what American culture has become.

    Three cheers for Evan Bayh - a man of honor and integrity. He doesn't need to run with a man as corrupt and unqualified as Barack Hussein Obama.
