    would be an "elder statesman" type who'd serve just a single term, someone who might be too old to run for President himself in 2016, then in 2012 Obama could run with Schweitzer since he'd be termed out in MT, grooming him for a run in 2016. Or for that matter, he could do the same thing with one of the women VP candidates mentioned if he thinks having an African-American President/female VP ticket would be too much of a shock to the American voters' systems; elder statesman for 4 years, then Napolitano or Sebelius or even McCaskill.  That would totally blunt any talk of "inexperience" or "naivete", taking away one of the Republicans' key talking points going into the election season.
