Hillary Rodham Clinton is considered a potential contender for Barack Obama's running mate, but two other women are also being mentioned.

Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius and Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano are rising stars in the Democratic Party. It's thought they might appeal to alienated Clinton supporters. Neither is openly saying she'd be interested.

Both Sebelius and Napolitano have downsides. There's no guarantee their states would go Democratic, and each has been a governor only since 2002.

Among other names being mentioned are New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson, former Senator John Edwards, Delaware Senator Joe Biden, Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, Virginia Senator Jim Webb and former Senator Sam Nunn.
