VP Madness...let's all play!!!!!!

CQ Politics has a fun game they call "VP Madness" where folks pick the Vice Presidential candidate in several rounds:
It's time for presumed Democratic nominee Barack Obama to turn his attention to a running mate. To help, we bring you the second installment of VP Madness, where users decide who Obama should choose as his #2. Vote in the head-to-head match ups below to determine which candidates advance to face each other in the next round. You can view the latest results by clicking the button at the bottom of the page. The winner will be revealed on July 1 in plenty of time for Obama to consider your choice.

In the GOP Edition, former Arkansas Governor (and former presidential candidate) Mike Huckabee was chosen as John McCain's best bet.

Here's a video where the CQ political experts introduce the candidates:



I chose: Bob Casey, Tom Vilsack, Richard Gephardt, Anthony Zinni, John Edwards, Brian Schweitzer, Evan Bayh, Wesley Clark, Kathleen Sebelius, Tim Kaine, Max Cleland, Tim Roemer, Bill Richardson, Janet Napolitano, Colin Powell, Bill Bradley

Post your choices in the comments!

John Edwards is my heartfelt fave.

I also have a soft spot for Florida Representative Robert Wexler. If you saw him during the Rules Committee debacle then you know why he is such good choice.

But of course I am okay with almost anybody but Hillary. She is the only way that Barack can lose. That is why you keep seeing FOX News and the Republican talking heads promoting her.

BTW I saw your article in the Daily News. I thought it was well written and informative. Good work.

Thank you very much!

Yup-I'm also rooting for John Edwards. Hillary (&Bill) wouldn't work as a VP and I don't think there is another Dem woman out there who has enough of a national profile or enough experience to be his VP.

I actually was a JE supporter till he dropped out.
