Tim Kaine, Joe Biden, and Evan Bayh.
It truly doesn’t matter since the general election race is over. It’s worth noting, I’ve not really paid attention to the VP vetting process once Obama’s additional vote getter – Jim Webb – ADAMANTLY said he would not seek the position.
Regardless, the “scary” thing about all three of these candidates without military experience is that mccain will immediately select a Tom Ridge (security of homeland security from the purple state PA) or somebody with vast military experience to scare the shiat out of us. Of course, there will be an October Surprise in an attempt to solidify that fear. But, I don’t think any of Obama’s current and continuous/unwavering 47% support is going anywhere regardless.
Blue = positives. Purple = so-sos. Red = negatives…
Tim Kaine: Mainstream Media’s shoe in. Born in a purple state – Minnesota. Went to school in a purple state – Missouri. Catholic – but, not your normal Catholic. He took a year off to work for a Roman Catholic missionary. Mayor, Lieutenant Governor, and now a Governor of a red state that is turning purple if not blue – e.g. Kaine, Webb, Obama finally up in the VA general election polls, etc. Aside from the aforementioned lack of military experience (all three “front runners”), somebody find me a negative other than his receding hair line and cartoonish looking face.
Joe Biden: Fan favorite during the 2008 dem debates. Old as the day is long. Catholic. Vast foreign policy experience/connections. Born in PA. But, the plaigarizing “scandal” from a past presidential run and being only a senator from an “unimportant” state (Delaware) doesn’t help.
Evan Bayh: Who? Exactly. Senator and current Governor of Indiana. Awkward HRC supporter. I’d rather see mccain have to waste money in VA trying to beat out Obama with Kaine as his running mate since mccain will probably carry Indiana even with Bayh on the ticket. Also, not a Catholic.
