Barack Obama ('04-'08)

Raising Kaine?

“Kaine and Obama became friends after they campaigned together during Kaine’s 2005 gubernatorial race…In recent weeks, Kaine and his staff have been in frequent contact with Obama and his campaign about strategy and operations in Virginia and elsewhere.” Webb may be gone, but some of the smart money seems to think that Obama is now leaning toward his fellow Virginian, Tim Kaine, for his running mate. Don’t know much about him, but, particularly if that secures Virginia, I’m all for it. Other names rumored on the short-short list: Joe Biden (Good choice, but might be a better fit at State) and Evan Bayh (frankly, I’ve never understood the appeal).

Discussion

One Response to “Raising Kaine?”

  1. My theory is that Obama needs a boring white guy who doesn’t take up too much space. Kaine seems to work. Bayh is too boring.

    And please Lord, make McCain pick Romney.
