Any bets yet? My bets are:

1. Gov. Kathleen Sebelius (Kansas). Solves the "white woman" problem with Hillary and she is popular with Republicans and Independents.

2. Bill Richardson. Brings in Hispanics and possibly a state (New Mexico)

3. Gen Wes Clark. Gives him balance with McCain on defense issues.

4. Sen Joe Biden. Well spoken and lots of experience.

Wes Clark is endorsing Hillary so Im not sure about him. Bill Richardson would be the best bet. Some say Obama would put Hillary on the ticket but I dont think he would do that. Hillary is the kind of person where she has to be in charge and those two would just butt heads If Hillary were his vice-president.

It seems that most VP choices are made to "balance the ticket", so here are my predictions:

It will be a white male from the South with a solid military background. I seriously doubt the Democrats would want a double-minority ticket with Obama coupled to a female or Hispanic. Names I've heard that fit the profile include Wes Clark and Jim Webb. I think either would be a solid choice.

Obama/Daschle

Obama/Chafee

Unfortunately, I think he needs to put a white guy on the ticket. Webb's Senate seat was a hard-fought victory for the Dems in the Senate and they do not want to give it up. Daschle's former people are working for Obama now and Daschle would provide some of the "experience" factor. And Chafee would help the moderate Republican vote come Obama's way.

Webb would be a dynamite choice. Too bad he's a first-termer.

The question "Who will PRESIDENT Obama choose as Vice President?" should actually read, Who will Obama choose as a running mate? You will never have to worry about calling him President.
