I can very much see Clinton choosing Bayh as her running mate should she win nomination. Bayh would be very much in the "establishment" mold.

"However, if Hillary wins (God forbid), I have a feeling she will not choose from the other candidates."

I would bet real money that Liza is right. I would place Evan Bayh at the top of her list. He recently endorsed her, he is a popular, moderate Democrat from the Heartland of Indiana. He will help her look moderate in the Midwest, which she MUST win to win the Presidency. He also doesn't upstage her. He is well liked and rather blah...

My second choice would have been someone like Mark Warner in VA because of his history of being able to sell Democrat politics to a Southern state, BUT Warner is running for Senate and will undoubtably be around in 2012 if something goes very wrong in 2008.

Other choices...if she picks a rival, it would be a Richardson because of experience and his ability to carry swing state NM...and maybe have some effect on Arizona.

Sleeper choice...

Janet Napolitano, but would America be ready for two women?

I actually voted for Wesley Clark in the 2004 AZ Democratic primary in the hope that Kerry would choose him for VP or make him Defense Secretary. So, its hard to say whether or not people might already be thinking that way about the candidates. I also think that Dick Cheney's reign of terror has infused in the system the expectation that the vice president should be powerful, and people may want to have a say in that choice. A strong runner up is the logical choice for VP.

However, if Hillary wins (God forbid), I have a feeling she will not choose from the other candidates.

Hmmm ... an interesting conjecture, but I suspect if there is any such effect, it's minimal. I don't see people donating to a candidate in the expectation he will become Vice President.

It'd be interesting to see how many donors are giving to both campaigns...figuring that Hillary will win & voicing support for Obama as Veep.
