27. Put Obama and Edwards on a ticket together
I prefer Obama at the top but Edwards/Obama works too. I think those two together would be the best Democratic ticket we've had in decades.

Edwards being from the South, plus increased African-American turnout for Obama will make several Southern state competitive. Obama helps in the Midwest. Putting a Southerner and Midwesterner on a ticket together tends to work well. Johnson/Humphrey won the biggest landslide in history. Carter/Mondale at least won once.

I think Gore/Obama works for the same reasons, but Obama and Edwards would have the bonus of being relatively new faces and they're both more charismatic than Gore. Edwards and Obama also have a compatible style and message that would reinforce eachother in a way that Kerry/Edwards did not. Yeah, we'd win with those two.
