Sure it’s only Iowa so far, but what the hell.
Obama, if nominated, just might select Bill Richardson as his running mate. Obama would get a huge boost among Latinos and Richardson bolsters his weakness in the area of experience. (OK, so the more-experienced Veep pick might bring back a few bad recent memories…).
Of course, much of this decision would depend on who runs against Obama. Given the immigration-related foaming at the mouth going on across the aisle, the Latino vote could be a given.
Any talk of running mates is of course merely academic until we have a clear leader after several primaries and after we have some level of certainty that Cheney will give up the position peacefully.
