2008 Slog Poll: Obama’s VP Pick
posted by August 18 at 13:10 PMon
The announcement is coming at the end of this week. Maybe. Probably. Unless it’s not.
But Obama definitely has to decide on a VP by next Wednesday, when the mystery man or woman is scheduled to be formally introduced at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. So with that deadline looming let’s see what the Slog mob thinks should happen.
Remember, we’re talking here about what should happen, in your humble opinions, not what will happen.
I’ve tried to give you the most inclusive list possible below (minus people who have already taken themselves out of the running). Vote wisely. And be advised: I’m going to make this into a sort of runoff voting experience, wherein each day until Obama makes his choice I knock a few of the least popular candidates out of contention. There will be fewer choices tomorrow, even fewer on Wednesday, fewer still on Thursday, and so on.
Ready? Let’s see how much of a mind-meld you all really have with the Democratic nominee…
Who should Obama pick as Vice President?
Poll closes at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Next round of voting begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday.
