There will probably be announcements soon, for sure within the next few weeks. So put your predictions here. The winners will get all the glory that an internet forum can provide.



My guesses.



Obama: Bayh from Indiana



McCain: Portman from Ohio

    Obama: I have no idea and frankly, don't care.

    McCain: I'm pulling for Sarah Palin. I think she would by far, be the best choice. It would earn my vote.

    The only one who could save McCain's wrinkly ass would be Mitt Romney. Really, he'd have the election in the bag. Colostomy bag that is.

    Obama: Webb. (He can actually help bring home VA in November)



    McCain: So basically we're picking the president for the final 2 years of the term since McCain will likely succumb to angry-old-man-exploding-head-disease shortly after he would be elected. Tim Pawlenty because he's young and conservative. Will appeal to the all important (for the Republicans) douche-bag demographic.



    Bayh is interesting since he was a Clinton supported and may bring some stubborn Clinton supporters back into the fray.



    John "Married a cunt" McCain choose a woman? heh, sure he will.

    Obama? Joe Biden.



    McCain? No idea but praying for Romney.

    Webb is more likely than Bayh because Virginia is trending Democratic (Gov. Kaine, Sen. Webb, and most likely Sen. Mark Warner along with demographic trends). So it's safer to pick him. But Indiana isn't going anywhere. It has a Republican governor and a split Senate delegation. Why would we poach a red-state Senator and give up that seat? Vice Presidents don't bring their home states to the table. Obama needs all the support in the Senate he can get to pass his agenda...

    Webb has definitively stated that he will not be a veep nominee.



    You're right about losing Bayh from the Senate, but I chose him because he's about the safest, most boring choice possible for Obama. Then again, I always pick a number 1 seed in NCAA tournament pools too.

    That right there could bring Kentucky into your column.

    Obama: I really like Wesley Clarke. I think he put his foot in his mouth a few weeks back, but I'd still like to see him.



    McCain: Giuliani? I really have no idea.

    Hate filled elitist! I thought your Jesus Obama that you love so much you would gladly kill for him was all about the peace and love and walking on water and laying on of hands and raising the dead, but now we see the rage and ugliness lying just beneath the surface!



    Terrifying.

    Yeah, good point. Although VA Gov. Kaine seems to be on the radar.

    Those are the type of comments Phil Gramm must have been talking about when he called us a nation of whiners.

    Are we sure about that?



    I actually think he would help McCain in a huge way.

    Help him? Change his diapers? Maybe. But I think it would be off putting to lots of evangelicals. However, I agree it would help with on the fence independents and moderate republicans.

    I am no enemy to evangelicals and I have no problem with Romney being Mormon. I actually figure he would be more friendly to evangelicals than old McCain himself.



    I also think that for many of the conservatives out there who are put off by the moderate nature of McCain Romney lends a bit of a conservative tilt to the ticket.



    I could be wrong but this is just how I see it.



    Ohh and.. we all know McCain speaks almost worse than our current president and like him or hate him Romney is very well spoken in front of a camera. Something McCain needs much help with so it seems....

    Not all evangelicals are as progressive as you, Fellowship, and living in the not so deep south i have witnessed the "bible-thumpers" (mostly baptists, there is not many of those in the south, are there? ) put down Mormons and to them a Mormon is on the same level as electing a Muslim, Atheist, or god forbid one of those shifty Jews.
