  •  Only Clark is a better political choice (0+ / 0-)

    And that's to cinch Virginia.

    Might be other reasons not to give the VP slot to Clark. He might be more valuable elsewhere.

    Choosing Bayh hits all the bases:

    * Establishing Indiana as a swing state

    * Gaining moderate creds that could turn votes in other "red" states and force the Republicans to spend more money on their own turf.

    * Unifying the party with a likely Clinton VP pick.

    * Gaining a VP nominee who specializes in nuclear non-proliferation

    * Helping a down-ticket governor's race (Indiana!)

    * Gaining a VP who has had success working with Republicans on what should be nonpartisan issues (foreign affairs)
