    I am not going to get into who I specifically think each guy should pick.

    All I will say is McCain needs someone who Conservatives like, preferabley with a strong back ground in Economics.

    Obama needs someone with foreign policy and more government experience than himself.

    I guess they all have their ups and downs, but none is particularly exciting.

    Isn't it sad that he needs someone with experience to make his ticket viable? You'd think it would be the other way around: the experienced would need the popular to make their ticket sellable.

    Clinton/Obama would have won by an overwhelming landslide. Obama/Clinton would still win, but Clinton wants no part of it. She sees Obama for what he is, and she puts on the facade of believing in his vision.

    I've actually heard a lot of Palin talk lately... first heard it on the local news a few days ago... I have to admit, though being from an out of the way state, she seems to have a lot to offer in stance, strength, and demographics

    That's Obama's way of trying to lure Hillary supporters back to his side. He needs to realize people didn't support Hillary because she was a woman. We supported her because she knows what the hell is going on in the world, as compared to Barack.

    Evan Bayh is his best shot, but again, Bayh should be first-billed on an Obama/Bayh ticket. It's sad that Obama is even given this chance. He's already proven that he can't fight for the issues he supports. He caves in to demands from all sides. He's just the Democrats version of Bush, someone they can push around to get what they want.
