The Barack Obama VP Guessing Game … Clinton? Biden? Sebelious? Bayh? Kaine?


Obama, please pick a VP so that everyone can stop guessing and speculating as Question_markto who it will be. Everyone seems to think they know who will be Obama’s Veep.

According to the pundits at MSNBC Senator Joe Biden of Delaware will be Obama’s choice. This makes some sense in that Obama will need a Dick Cheney type on the ticket due to his lack of any experience and leadership. However, a VP Biden choice comes with its share of baggage as Biden has a knack for inserting his foot in his mouth. There seems to be another problem with Biden as VP, he says I’m Not The Guy”.

The Tribble Ad Agency state they have credible evidence that Kathleen Sebelius will be Obama’s VP. This will get a woman on the ticket; however, Hillary Clinton supporters may be outraged by the fact that it is not their women.

Speaking of Hillary Clinton, Ralph Nader believes that Obama will pick Clinton in the end as his VP running mate. In the end as Hot Air states, all predictions for the VP are nothing more than speculation. There is one major downside in all this media attention and speculation. The VP choice may fall flat after this fever pitch leading up to the decision.

The smart pick, according to Nader, is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Nader phoned into Politico Tuesday afternoon to offer his prediction that a surprise nod to Clinton is actually what Obama has in store—never mind the talk of mistrust between the Clintons and Obama.

      Obama said he is going to text message his supporters first of his decision…who is he kidding, he wants as many people on his website as possible so he can get their E-Mail address…and ask for a donation…

      Maybe everyone he asks says NO

      Anybody would beat the Shrub/Cheney fiasco that has been in office the past 8 years. Martin/Lewis, Abbott/Costello, Rowan/Marin, Sonny/Cher… Any of those combinations would have beat this clueless bunch.

      My bet is Hillary, not because he wants her, but because he really wants the White House. That’s going to energize republicans to get to the polls even if they have to crawl!

      If Obama’s advisors are doing their job correctly, he will be instructed to chose HRC.

      My gut says he may go with Kaine.

      McCain should NOT pick Lieberman or Ridge. I think if he is being advised correctly, he will go with Mitt Romney.

    6. dave on August 20th, 2008 3:09 pm

      Who cares.
      Lets get this election over with so McCain can run our country like the True Patriot he is and let Obama and the evil left crawl under a rock where they belong.

      One thing is certain: neither of the parties will consider Beth Holloway. She would accomplish more for the American people, and would have more popular support, than anyone else.

      In other words, she’d overshadow the top guy. And in politics, that’s the ultimate sin.

      I’ve already nominated moderator Klaasen, in this space, but so far neither party has responded.
      Their loss, and ours, as far as I’m concerned.

    8. brie. on August 20th, 2008 4:07 pm

      Obama wants everything to build up to the big fireworks….

      I think the choice maybe Hillary…not that they like each other…but he is assured the women Democratic vote and also those that maybe are considering McCain because she lost..the race was really close…

      If he doesn’t choose Hillary I wouldn’t doubt she will ask for a write in on the ballot…it could separate the party but then again since he is loosing ground, she just might win…!!!!

    9. brie. on August 20th, 2008 4:25 pm

      Biden says Obama is clean…would you mind explaining his forged birth certificate, what is his real name, he is a Muslim but won’t admit it, part of a congregation for over 20 yrs that was black racist Muslim, won’t salute the flag…how can anyone think that is right and be in support…

      He doesn’t like America as well as Michelle but yet he is running for President….

    10. katablog on August 20th, 2008 5:14 pm

      Obama’s pick should be Hillary, but I don’t believe for a minute that his ego will allow him to do that. I say his pick is Evan Byah but then who cares.

      If McCain wanted to walk away with the election at this point he would choose Alaska’s governor, Sarah Palin. 1) he’d pull in the disenfranchised Democrat voters 2) He would get more of the conservative base to hold their nose and vote for him. 3) what a coo to put a woman on the ticket! 4) all the millions that signed the Drill Here, Drill Now petition would also have to take a second look at McCain.

      Lieberman would be a disastrous choice for McCain and I mean disastrous like in who can lose this election worse. It would be like “Two Grumpy Old Men” and the Democrats would have a field day with their combined ages.

      I strongly doubt that McCain is smart enough to pick Palin, but I can tell you he’s stupid if he goes with Lieberman.

      #10— You are exactly correct in all of your musings. I agree though, let’s get this overwith and move forward to the debates and the election in November.

      Most Americans would also agree that this years choices have been horrible! For the first time EVER, I actually have to keep lecturing my better half that he HAS TO GO VOTE. He is so disgusted, he has been talking about not even showing up at the polls. I know many who feel the same. What a shame.

      Evan Bayh is very popular in this area.. so was his father Birch Bayh..

      I don’t think he will pick Clinton. I heard his comment reported today, he is picking someone who don’t think they are above the law.. guess that leaves out you know who..

      Saw this story about Obama’s half brother, lives on less than a dollar a month.

      The Italian edition of Vanity Fair said that it had found George Hussein Onyango Obama living in a hut in a ramshackle town of Huruma on the outskirts of Nairobi.

      Mr Obama, 26, the youngest of the presidential candidate’s half-brothers, spoke for the first time about his life, which could not be more different than that of the Democratic contender.

      “No-one knows who I am,” he told the magazine, before claiming: “I live here on less than a dollar a month.”

      According to Italy’s Vanity Fair his two metre by three metre shack is decorated with football posters of the Italian football giants AC Milan and Inter, as well as a calendar showing exotic beaches of the world.

      Vanity Fair also noted that he had a front page newspaper picture of his famous brother – born of the same father as him, Barack Hussein Obama, but to a different mother, named only as Jael.

      He told the magazine: “I live like a recluse, no-one knows I exist.”

      Embarrassed by his penury, he said that he does not does not mention his famous half-brother in conversation.

      “If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed,” he said.

      For ten years George Obama lived rough. However he now hopes to try to sort his life out by starting a course at a local technical college.

      He has only met his famous older brother twice – once when he was just five and the last time in 2006 when Senator Obama was on a tour of East Africa and visited Nairobi.

      The Illinois senator mentions his brother in his autobiography, describing him in just one passing paragraph as a “beautiful boy with a rounded head”.

      Of their second meeting, George Obama said: “It was very brief, we spoke for just a few minutes. It was like meeting a complete stranger.”

      George added he was no longer in contact with his mother and said:”I have had to learn to live and take what I need.

      “Huruma is a tough place, last January during the elections there was rioting and six people were hacked to death. The police don’t even arrest you they just shoot you.

      “I have seen two of my friends killed. I have scars from defending myself with my fists. I am good with my fists.”

      Yeah Maggie and I bet Barack Obama takes care of his brother’s plight the same way he upholds his promise to help the school in Kenya.

    14. minnesota dad on August 21st, 2008 2:11 pm

      I’m betting on one of two things:

      1) Hillary will be named VP


      2) Hillary will be showing up at the convention and raisin a little hell.

      She has been way too quiet lately. Either she has been told she is the VP candidate, or she and her troops are going to be challenging Obama at the convention.

      I am going to lean on #1. These people, like Aruba are pretty predictable. Going for the dramatic punch, Hillary will be put on the role call. Obama will not have named his VP yet. Hillary will lose in a close battle in the role call, but then pledge hers and all of her constituents/supporters support behind Obama. Obama will be so pleased about this ‘kum-by-ya’ moment that he will name Hillary VP. A love fest will follow and the media will trumpet how they have unified the Democrat party…..

      Mark my words……this is the party of Hollywood, and Spielberg or someone else is probably writing the script.


    15. A New Girl on August 21st, 2008 3:22 pm

      #14—Minnesota….Oh, God—it’s going to be one massive, completely overdone love fest anyway….isn’t it? Oh, Gee…I can hardly wait. NOT!

    16. dennisintn on August 22nd, 2008 9:17 am

      it really doesn’t matter who he picks. he/she will have no more influence on what the dems do than obama himself. the extreme left wing moneybags are now in complete control of the democratic party. there are, of course, several moderate and even conservative democrats in office but they have no more power or influence in affairs than i do.

      Back in May, Dr. Tantillo (‘the marketing doctor’), who has (a blog on branding) did a post arguing against the idea of an Obama-Clinton ticket–positing that from a branding perspective, it makes no sense, and actually wouldn’t be a good move for Clinton’s brand, either.

      “Because of the length of this primary fight, brand identity and loyalty to brand have become central. What this means is that a kind of brand mutual exclusivity has set in.”??Not sure if I agree or if this idea still holds at this point, but it is a compelling argument – (and one that I at least think goes a long way toward explaining Obama’s hesitation to choose Clinton as his running mate–even if it would go a long way toward building party unity and seemingly clench the general election for Obama.)

      It was announced today (August 23) that Obama picked Biden of Delaware.

      I forget whether Delaware or Rhode Island is the smallest state in the country.

      Anyway, it’s the Obama-Biden ticket.

      Good thing it isn’t Biden-Obama, as that would be called the “B.O.” ticket.

      Come to think of it, Barak Obama ….

      Well, anyway, enough of this.
