Presidential Candidates Announcing VP Choices

Posted by Mandy at 9:51 AM
If any of you have been waiting on pins and needles like I have, waiting for the Presidential candidates to announce who their running mates will be, the time is near!

According to Fox News, John McCain will announce his VP pick on August 29, on his 72nd birthday. Barack Obama will announce his pick this Thursday or Friday.

The buzz is that McCain will choose one out of the following:
Tim Pawlenty
Mitt Romney
Tom Ridge
Joe Lieberman

Some are even saying that Arkansas's own Mike Huckabee is in the running! I can definitely imagine a hot presidential ticket featuring McCain-Huckabee.

As for Obama, his pick is speculated to come from this group:
Tim Kaine
Joe Biden
Evan Bayh
Kathleen Sebelius

I assumed that Hillary Clinton would be his top pick, but now it looks like she might not be in the running at all. Perhaps that's because she was not keen on being VP. After striving to be the President of the Free World, being knocked down to VP didn't sound so appealing. There is still a chance Obama will surprise everyone and show up with Mrs. Clinton on his arm... but it's looking doubtful.

So, who are you rooting for? If you could choose the candidates VPs yourself, who would you pick and why? Would the VP choice sway your decision in who to vote for?

This information was taken from an article on Fox News. You can view the complete article here.

I am completely dumb founded. I don't know. I did say that if Obama wins Democratic Party and not Hillary. That I would have to write Jeff Noble in. Looks like he may be getting his wish.
