3. My take.
EVAN BAYH We can't afford to lose him in the Senate. Shouldn't run.

JOE BIDEN Hawk. Won't get my primary vote.

WESLEY CLARK Needs to run for Governor. Has a small chance to get my primary vote if he runs. My probably choice for VP.

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON She wont get my vote in the primary but I could vote for her in the general election without hating it.

JOHN EDWARDS Cant carry his own state. Doesn't help us in any of the toss up regions IMO. Poor candidate but he'd get my vote in the general without question.

RUSS FEINGOLD Russ has a 90% chance of getting my primary vote should he run. I will also volunteer for him.

JOHN KERRY Kerry is a good guy. He got my vote this year and would get it next year in the general but surely not my primary vote.

BILL RICHARDSON Viable candidate. Not my choice in the primary but he could be a top candidate for VP if he went for it.

TOM VILSACK Is he term limited? I don't know much about his politics.

MARK WARNER Warner needs to help us take the Senate back. If he doesn't there is no reason he should get my vote in 2008.
