Re: The Candidates and Their Cabinets

...a little more about that question. Richardson could be a good running mate for Obama but not for Clinton. A Clinton/Richardson ticket would look like a Pres. Clinton admin. rerun and that has already been a problem for her. Clinton could call on Sen. Bayh of IN or Former Gov. Warner of VA as running mates--both of them thought about running and both are young and from states where Democratic support is hard to come by statewide. Former Gov. Tom Vilsack of IA was the first to withdraw--he could be a possibility. On the Republican side: Huckabee could position himself as a VP candidate, if things don't keep going his way. He would balance McCain well. I can't see him playing second string to Romney or Guiliani but politics are politics. A killer ticket could be either McCain/Huckabee or Huckabee/Thompson. Both would satisfy almost every element of the party. There is a solid balance of conservative domestic ideology and foreign policy know how. If the Dems. are smart they will go for that combination as well: Obama/Edwards would be good but potentially week. Getting Biden or Dodd back in the race as a VP nominee would look good for their experience but I don't see either of them ticketing with Clinton.

  • The cooperative business model can help reverse wealth inequality.
