VP Selection

So I had an e-mail today from someone called David Price touting a new online discussion tool , in which he highlights a page on which you can add comments and arguments relating to Obama's VP selection. Whether you like this tool or not, I suppose will be somewhat related to how much of a geek you are. Personally, I think the interface could be made a lot more attractive but the basic concept is kinda neat.

If you've been following Obama's selection process so far, you may have seen that his vetters have been meeting with leading Democrats to get their input. Apparently about 20 names have been mentioned in these meetings - names notable by including some surprises (James Jones, Retired General and former Supreme Allied Commender) and some perhaps surprisingly left off (where have you gone Bill Richardson?). Below is an updated list of names discussed. Comments, thoughts? Do let me know.

  • Hillary Clinton

  • James Jones

  • John Kerry

  • John Edwards

  • Evan Bayh

  • Kathleen Sebelius

  • Ted Strickland

  • Mark Warner

  • Tim Kaine

  • Jim Webb

  • Bill Nelson

  • Jack Reed

  • Joe Biden

  • Chris Dodd

  • Tom Daschle

  • Sam Nunn

I think Hillary or John Kerry would ruin Obama's chances. Too many memories.

I'm still routing for Edwards as VP, but I read on the Huffington Post he is not interested? Aghhh!
