    This subject was briefly discussed in a flame zone thread, but I thought it was worthy of an honest, flame-free discussion.

    Dogger suggested Wes Clark for a couple of good reasons. I think that would be a solid choice.

    What do you think?

    Bad Idea.

    I firmly believe he cost Gore the election in 2000...and I called it the moment he was announced.

    Yeah, but 9/11 changed everything. Though I have no idea how old Joe is...

    What about Hillary?

    Would she hurt or help the ticket as VP? Would she accept it?


    I know the primary has been somewhat bitter, but that could certainly help court back the Hillary fanatics. And I was pretty young at the time, but I seem to recall Bush Sr. and Reagan going toe to toe and getting pretty nasty in the 1980 primaries. Who can forget voo-doo economics. :D

    Hillary as VP is the only way I'd consider voting for Obama. Even then, I'm skeptical. I just don't want the man in office.

    He wouldn't offer her the role, though. He doesn't want to be Bush to her Cheney.

    I don't know if Hillary would be a good choice for Obama. She'd serve the country better as an outspoken and powerful Senator.

    On the other hand, he'd be a great choice for her VP. He's a little wussy, but that's not a bad trait in the VP position.

    What makes you say he's a wussy?

    Hillary has more balls than he does.

    TMI Alert!

    I knew you were into Hillary and all, but I didn't know you really knew her up close and personal like.
