Absolutely thrilled that Barack Obama appears to be the Democratic candidate. When I last talked politics, I explained why I’m not a Hillary Clinton fan. Back then, John Edwards was in the race for the nomination, but that quickly changed. It wasn’t a hard decision to back Obama after Edwards exited.
Now, who will be on the ticket with Obama? Here are my dream Veep candidates. (Keep in mind that I believe he needs either a southern or a western Democrat, not another midwestern or northeastern Democrat.)
1. John Edwards – surprise, surprise, even though I know he is unlikely to be part of another presidential race this time around.
2. Bill Richardson – he seems to have the amount of foreign relations expertise that would help Obama given his relative lack thereof.
3. Kathleen Sebelius – borderline midwestern/western without the foreign relations experience, but with excellent leadership skills.
