We've had all kinds of talk over who would be the presidential candidate in 2008, my question is, who do you think are likely VP choices? My thoughts: (For the big 3 Democrats) Hillary Clinton - Wesley Clark has it wrapped up with her, I think. Barack Obama - Will offer it to Hilary, she will turn it down as she has no desire to be number 2. I see Tim Kaine of Virginia as the best balance to Obama's ticket. A southern, white, male with experience in the executive branch. So yeah, he would be my guess. John Edwards - I think he would go with Bill Richardson. It is a good balance to the ticket. I'm not sure that he would offer to Obama as there would be too much inexperience there. But Edwards is so white male that he would basically have to pick a minority (especially after having two minority front runners in the form of Clinton and Obama in the primary). That is why I am leaning towards Richardson. (Big 4 for the Republicans) Rudy Giuliani - He would need a conservative candidate to balance his ticket, obviously. If Mike Huckabee does well in the primaries, he could be the VP. Otherwise, I think Rick Santorum or Bill Frist are possibilities. If Hillary wins the primary however, there is a possibility Rudy might want to get a woman attached to the campaign and may go with Condoleezza Rice. She can rally the hard core conservatives who remain loyal to the Bush administration and the religious right while he goes after the more liberal conservatives and moderates. So yeah, his VP nomination would be an interesting process to watch. Mitt Romney - I think Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson has it locked up with him. John McCain - Hmm...this one is hard to predict. McCain is a bit of a flip-flopper. He has made himself incredibly loyal to the Bush administration to rally their base, but at the same time he still has a very liberal image in the media. I'd see him going with a middle state moderate to balance his ticket either way, but I'm not sure who would fit that bill. Fred Thompson - I'd say George Allen is a good possibility. Another possible choice, as odd as it sounds is Jeb Bush. He could really get the conservative and religious base rallied around Thompson. What does everyone else think?
