Let the veepstakes begin

Since the race for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination began, roughly, on Inauguration Day 2005, it is not too early to speculate on who might be the leading candidates for the eventual nominees’ vice presidential pick.
The media’s attention is focused for now on the three-way dust-up between Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY), liberal Hollywood mogul and former Clinton supporter David Geffen and Senator Barack Obama (D-IL). The media cannot avoid a story filled with Hollywood drama and the politics of sex and race. Geffen, who hosted a megastar fundraiser for Obama, told the New York Times, “Everybody in politics lies, but (the Clintons) do it with such ease, it’s troubling.”
By comparison, the Republican nomination race is as exciting as MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Like Olbermann’s show, no one is watching. ...
...One thing is for sure. If Hillary wins her party’s nomination, her vice president won’t be David Geffen.

My Guess? Here goes
..Throwing darts here, but if one of these are correct, then I knew it all along !
Here are some good GOP picks.
Giuliani- V. Hillary / VP John Ashcroft
Giuliani V. Obama/ VP J.C. Watts
, Michael Steele, or Herman Cain.
Romney / Gingrich
McCain/ Romney or Cain
McCain / Cain has a nice ring to it.
Or at least an echo.
Geographically, and politically balanced.
Them Dems: You wrote : "If Clinton or Obama eventually becomes president, their vice-president will serve his term in a virtual witness protection program." Absolutly right.
Obama / Gov. Granholm of MI- a Cal-Berkley / Harvard Lawyer, a pretty, young Hillary
- with political accomplishments
- without an impeached husband.
Could be problematic when the press notices that she is prettier than Barak.
Hillary / Obama - Could REALLY need his help to win if she hasn't destroyed him completely but she would return the Veep's power and influence to John Nance Garner levels!
Too soon to tell with Hillary, her choice will be sooooo poll and focus group driven that it will be decided at the convention. By Bill.
