Strickland or Webb for Obama

I can't take credit for this at all. I'm basically just parroting my husband--but he knows everything.

Bill says that Obama should consider the following two people for veep:

1) Ted Strickland, Governor of Ohio:
pros: could swing Ohio; minister (Obama could say he's got a new minister!), centrist, Hillary supporter (unify the party), white male, he's a GOVERNOR not a Senator, has foreign policy experience.
cons: hmmm, well, white male, centrist, Hillary supporter (but that's just me).
Bill says just leave him to do the business of Ohio and campaign only in Ohio and neighboring key states, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky. All Obama has to do to win is hold all the states Kerry won plus Ohio.

2) Jim Webb, Senator from Virginia:
Pros: popular, Bible thumper, could maybe bring Virginia, centrist, is he another Hillary supporter?
Cons: another senator.

Okay, that's all for now. Trying to get back in the blogging game.
