Vice Presidential Speculation

Washington Post Outlines Obama's Options

The story focuses on Virginia governor Tim Kaine, about whom I know precious little. But it also includes a few other names. Aside from Kaine, the main options seem to be:

  • Senator Evan Bayh from Indiana
  • Senator Joe Biden from Delaware
  • Governor Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas
Christopher Dodd, Hillary Clinton and Sam Nunn get cursory mentions. The report labels Chuck Hagel and Jack Reed as "longshots."

I'll have to do some reading up on Bayh and Kaine, but especially the latter.

Kaine went to Rockhurst HS, class of 1976. So he's a local boy made good.
