39. Max Cleland would be great..
having those 2 on the same ticket would bring out the best in our party and country. another possibility would be a Governor like Kathleen Sebelius or Janet Napolitano. this would focus our efforts on something Obama mentions in one of his books, the importance of the Democratic party building a new political coalition that can last for decades.

the New Deal Coalition did this until the 60's and 70's, since then we have been holding together an outdated political alliance instead of experimenting with bringing in younger and idealistic voters.
