sounds good on tv and it looks good on a sign
Obama personally knows the guy & DNC really doesn't want to pluck another senator for VP, especially a red state guy when they are trying to build a majority.[/QUOTE]
An unlikely choice but a good one. Kaine is a southern governor whose done a good job in his state. Personally, I would have liked to see Obama pick Evan Bayh or Wesley Clark but Kaine is still a good choice.
Another possibility would have been Kaine's predecessor Mark Warner. Warner is another Bill Clinton, charismatic, southern governor and very ambitious. Warner would probably be the frontrunner for the Veep nod but he's running for the Senate and he's whipping Jim Gilmor in the polls right now.
