Julian Castro 7-2 (3.5-1)
Bernie Sanders 7-1
His public appearances in the last year or so have recieved tepid reviews. If she really picks a cabinet officer in the "year of the outsider" she'd probably go with Tom Perez--he's a much better campaigner, has a more impressive resume, and has closer ties to Obama's economic successes.
And (on edit) there's another downside to Castro--who I personally admire, BTW--even though he is over 35, he doesn't exactly look over 35.
Personally I'd like to see Elizabeth Warren have the spotlight and a seat at national policymaking tables.
That's who I think should be on the ticket!
Yeah, that's the ticket!!!

I really think those are the only two she is seriously considering...and I think Brown will be the one.
Brown?? I don't think so. As for Castro, I don't think he has much exposure outside of San Antonio and DU. If there is anyone that she could select with name recognition and not risk losing a Senate seat, would be Martin O'Malley.
And Brown will help her win Ohio...the loss of the Senate seat is tough, but they may bet that there will be such a tidal wave one seat won't matter.
but I don't know how popular he really is. He has been pretty quiet here since I moved here. I just don't think he carries as much clout as a popular governor would carry.
Ohio is a bit of a fucked up state. They want to think they are a first rate state, yet there are way too many fucking teabaggers running the government.
As my wife says, "It's fucking Ohio, what do you expect?"
More Dems than Repukes, yet somehow the Repukes get into office.
Repukes into office...note that I said supposedly.
If someone is willing to bet for/against it, they will create odds for it.
Personally, if I had cash to spare, I'd bet against Clinton being the VP nominee. Payout isn't great, but about 4% on such a short turn around isn't half bad.
