If Obama wins the nomination, I believe his smartest choice for VP could be Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano. I actually believe she would have been a better choice for president than any of the otp Dems.I think it's very unlikely that he would consider her as VP. Clinton would hurt Obama's core message of change and drive away his independent/Republican support. A Washington outsider that helps with Latinos, Westerners, or Southerners makes more sense.
It would take major reconciliation for Obama to consider being her VP...especially with the coming onslaught of mud from Clintonco.
Napolitano would probably be the best female VP choice. She endorsed Obama and has helped with campaign work. Kathleen Sebelius is another popular two-term moderate female governor that some have mentioned. She should endorse after her SOTU response Monday.
Obama will not choose Hillary as his VP. I guarantee that.
The final reason she probably won't want Obama as VP is that she has too many people within her own camp who are angling for the nomination and wants someone who will do her bidding and who will accept WJC as the real second-in-command.
Probably been asked before-- but could she theoretically nominate WJC as Vice-Prez??
If he doesn't win this go-around, it won't be a sure thing that he's up next for the Democrats. If Hillary wins, she is the candidate for the next eight years. Then her Vice-President has the inside track for the next nomination. It would be at least twelve years before Obama had a realistic chance to run for President if Hillary wins.Obama has no desire to be on the Supreme Court. He has grand political aspirations not judicial aspirations.
Exactly. The thing is, however, that Barack won't choose Hillary as a running mate. He does not have to and he recognizes this. The irony is that the Clintons would need Barack more than he could ever have a need for them. He can win without them but I do not think the Clintons can beat the Republican ticket without Barack.I would be significantly less likely to vote for Obama if he had Hillary as his running mate.
