2008 Slog Poll: Obama’s VP Pick (Round 2)
posted by August 19 at 10:00 AMon
Yesterday we started our Obama VP runoff voting with a super long list of possible picks.
More than 2,500 votes were cast and today, with talk of an imminent Obama decision still churning, I’m kicking out all the contenders who received less than 5 percent of the previous Slog vote. Mwa! Mwa! and auf Wiedersehen to: Evan Bayh, Chris Dodd, Chet Edwards, Al Gore, Tim Kaine, Janet Napolitano, Claire McCaskill, John Podesta, Jack Reed, Kathleen Sebelius, and Mark Warner. Best of luck to you all.
Below is the narrowed-down, but still pretty long, list for Round 2. Vote wisely. And remember, we’re talking here about who you think Obama should pick, not not who he will pick.
Who should Obama pick as Vice President?
Poll closes at
8:30 a.m. on Wednesday NOON TODAY. Then, because of all the chatter about an Obama pick first thing Wednesday morning, we’ll commence a series of lightning rounds this afternoon and settle on a Slog VP pick by end of day today.
