2008_08_vps.jpgAfter earlier reports that Senator Barack Obama would be ready to announce his vice presidential running mate this week, now it seems that he may do so as soon as Wednesday. According to the NY Times, the focus is "mainly on three candidates: Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana, Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr. of Delaware," (though there are hopes Obama will choose a female running mate, like Senator Hillary Clinton or Kansas's Governor Kathleen Sibelius--a CBS News-NY Times poll 61% of Democratic candidates like Clinton as a VP). Recent issues: The Georgia-Russia conflict, Musharraf's resignation suggest that Obama needs more foreign policy experience in his VP. On the other side, Senator John McCain will announce his running mate on August 29.
