Speculation abounds about vice-presidential picks, even for the Democrats. The Democrats are getting some silly ideas.
I would be very suprised if either Clinton or Obama were to pick the other as their running mate. Either Clinton or Obama would have more real power and influence if they stayed in the Senate than if they became Vice-president. And what if the Democrats lose in November? Then whoever didn't get the nominations would be able to say "I told you so" and would be primed to go in four years. Also, a presidential candidate would want someone more dependent on them and someone without all the accumulated baggage. A fresh face would be preferable.
As for McCain, I suspect he will go with Gov. Crist of Florida. Crist is the right age, a governor of a swing state, conservative and popular. McCain's main problem is the right wing of the Republican party and he doesn't have to worry about appearing more moderate.
LEAVE APPLE ALONE! (*sob*)
