  •  I don't think Clark (0+ / 0-)

    Did himself much good this week, Richardson was better as a governor, than a presidential candidate, so my choice is still Webb.

    •  Webb may be the better pick from my POV (0+ / 0-)

      However, politics being what it is and Richardson having endorsed Obama at a key point and with some political risk, I would bet a little bit more on Richardson than on Webb.

      I look in my crystal ball and say:

      Richardson 35%
      Webb 20%
      Clark 15%
      Sebelius 10%
      miscellaneous former general or colonel 10%
      miscellaneous other 10%

      •  Richardson could tip New Mex (1+ / 0-)

        But I think he's a boring campagner.  Webb you never know what he will do next, threaten to punch Bush, bring a gun to the Senate, I like him, he adds a little flash, and a lot of substance.

        •  Richardson is a big yawn (0+ / 0-)

          He's also too far right on economics. Hwever, he would not just blunt, but obliterate McCain's modest strength with southwestern latinos. He would run up the score in NM and CO and put NV into play. But the big thing is that the deal may have already been done.

          Webb would help a little bit in all the important border states and the southern part fo the midwest, where the 2008 election will really be fought. Webb is the best pick of the people often mentioned in the media. I just suspect that a deal may have already been done. I'd be okay with Richarson or Clark ... or most frequently mentioned VPs other than Clinton or Bayh (and even with them, I'd remain a loyal voter and prossibly a contributor and campaigner).
