Poll question: OK, ClinBamaWards wins the nom - so who is your VP choice to complete the ticket?
I really don't see any of the Big Three wanting/taking the VP spot, so I didn't put them in the list below. Feel free to write 'em in if you think differently.
(I'm voting for Richardson.)

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

5. well, assuming she gets out of Iowa with a live campaign.
Right now it appears her strategy has shifted ( yet again) to being a "Comeback kid" somewhere, anywhere....

9. Only if Lieberman turns her down.
Then again, you're probably right.... the DLC spin doctors would tell her that a "Mountain West" neocon would win more "centrist" :eyes: votes than a "Northeast Liberal" :eyes: :eyes: neocon would.

4. When I first heard Jim Webb was a possible, he was my choice!
I've watched him in hearings, on the Senate floor, ,aking speeches, and in interviews on Sun. AM TV. He has NEVER disappointed me! I think he would be an excellent choice for any Dem candidate!

8. He would be great - but he was a pretty emphatic "no" on MTP a couple of sundays ago
Russert mentioned it to him and he really seemed to want to stay in the senate.

I'm pretty sure I remember him saying something like "Well in politics you never say no, but I'm very happy where I am."

edit: I found the transcript.

MR. RUSSERT: If that nominee said to you, Jim Webb, I want you to run as vice president because you can help me carry Virginia, would you run?

SEN. WEBB: I dont think that would befirst, nobodys talking to me. And I dont think that would be a great...

MR. RUSSERT: But what if they did? If they...

SEN. WEBB: I dont think, I dont think that would be a, a compelling enough reason for me to leave what Im doing right now.

MR. RUSSERT: But you dont rule it out?

SEN. WEBB: I just dontI have no desire to do it, soand Im not trying to be coy here. I just...

MR. RUSSERT: But youre not ruling it out?

SEN. WEBB: I have, I have, I have a lot of loyalty to trying to move forward the Democratic Party in the right way, but I really am not interested in that.

MR. RUSSERT: And you wouldnt accept it?

SEN. WEBB: I reallythose are what ifs, and Ronald Reagan said never answer what ifs.

10. Dodd
Clark wouldn't be a bad pick though, but he's too inexperienced in the game of politics. He definitely has to be in the cabinet though.

15. Took me this long to decide on Edwards as President.
I am not even close to deciding who the VP would be. Way too much time left. Sorry... I can't vote.

17. Bob Graham
former senator and governor of Florida - and big time policy wonk. Smart guy with tons of experience and his integrity has shown through during the whole iraq war resolution build-up period (before he retired from the Senate in 2004.)
