Two Other Females Mentioned As Possible Obama VP Choices

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.

    I'd say if Hillary can control Bill's propensity to fool around; as well as she did from the White House; then, she might be a good running mate for Obama, especially when it comes to what she brings to the table for Health Care in America!

    Hillary better stay home and keep an eye on Bill before he gets involved in more sex scandals.

    Obama should name his wife as VP, because if or when he gets to the White House, we all know his wife will be running the House. She is the one pulling and pushing Obama. She's in charge. Wake up people. God help us all.
