If he picks Hillary, there will be those who claim he was forced into it. I don't much care what they say as 'those' are not going to vote for Obama whatever he does. I would be okay with Hillary and maybe it's even his best choice. If we want the person a lot of people think is capable of being president, it'd be her. If he does though, he needs to watch his back :)

To be honest, I wish John Edwards would have displayed better judgment, because he seemed to me to be a good fit with Obama. Edwards has had experience with national politics but not too much to be considered an "insider", he would have drawn strong in the south, he matches Obama on issues such as abortion and the economy, and would have been a yang to Obama's yin in that Edwards would have been a white southerner in contrast to Obama being a black northerner (by default, I guess... he represents Illinois). Other than Hillary, I see very few people to choose from. John Kerry is a joke, Lieberman is a conservative, Al Gore is too obsessed with global warming to care about being vice president again, and I seriously doubt that Obama wants to walk behind Joe Biden's mouth with a pooper scooper, picking up the crap that falls out. Picking Hillary seems to be the best choice. Otherwise, I feel as though Obama might as well wait until the next election.
