There's speculation aplenty about who will be chosen as Obama and McCain's running mates.

A few weeks ago, I made a prediction--


I don't want that to be the case, that's just what I think will happen.

My hopes?

(second choice, Obama-Sebelius)

Okay, so I want McCain to pick Lieberman, mostly because I think that will infuriate a whole lot of Independents, as well as a good number of Republicans.

That's all for now.


  1. Drudge said yesterday he could announce it in the morning... then back tracked and said it'd be tomorrow morning...

    PERSONALLY I think Sebelius is the best choice... but I think picking her will alienate Clintonites (which honestly I could give a rats ass about alienating) because if they're going to pick a woman why not pick Clinton? Biden... you know... I just have never been a huge fan... I know he's a great Senator and I respect him... he just fills me with NO enthusiasm at all. Bayh... Just because I'm from Indiana I'd like to see him as veep...

    that's my analysis.

  2. CBS News has confirmed that Barack Obama's campaign now plans to announce Obama's vice presidential choice to supporters via email and text message on Friday afternoon.

    He will then appear with his running mate at noon the next day in Springfield, Illinois, CBS News chief political consultant Marc Ambinder reports.

    Media reports today have suggested that Indiana Senator Evan Bayh, Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Delaware Senator Joseph Biden as the names now atop Obama's list.

  3. I'm already signed up to get the update from the campaign... to be sure, it'll be on here as soon as I find out!

    As far as Sebelius alienating Clinton supporters... I think that would really only last about a week. No woman in her right mind who originally supported Clinton will switch to McCain, who has one of the worst records on women's rights and makes no promises to improve that.
