The VP rumors have been flying over the past few weeks and have picked up steam in the last day or two. We all have our personal favorites. Let me know who you like as running mate for both Obama and McCain.
The names I have seen the most, of course, are Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty.
Of course you have the former Republican candidates: Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback and Mike Huckabee. FreeRepublic, in a post yesterday, said Romney will be offered the running mate slot.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has also been rumored. Others mentioned are Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and North Carolina Senator Elizabeth Dole
Other names discussed: South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman and New York Senator Hillary Clinton (to unite the parties).
There seems to be no end to the rumors of VP candidates that have been mentioned. Here are but a few:
Hillary Clinton – to unite the Democratic Party.
John Edwards, Joe Biden and Bill Richardson from the 2008 candidate list have been mentioned.
Additional names that are thrown about: Virginia Senator Jim Webb, Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine and Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill.
In the cross party lines rumor – Nebraska Senator Chuck Hagel and New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
And the ‘fantasy for some’ rumor – Former Vice President Al Gore.
Obviously, there are names that were missed. That’s where you come in. Share your thoughts.
