Whom for VP ?

Assuming that Hillary, (white female member of Congress), is the eventual Dem nominee for Prez, does it help her or hurt her to choose Barack Hussein Obama, (black male member of Congress), as her running mate ?

And does the calculation change if the nominee is Bill Richardson, (hispanic male Governor), or any of the white male members of Congress (current or emeritus), who are seeking the Dem nomination ?

If we're having a pool, my pick will be Richardson. He's been Hillary's lapdog going way back, and she's comfortable with him. What not to like, he answers to the name Bill, is little chubby, moderately intelligent, a womanizer, and does what he's told.

Richardson might be on the list, since I think that Hillary will need a Governor to share her ticket. Two Congresscritters are slightly less appealing, and she'll need every edge that she can get.

That'll be about eight months too late.

The announcement of Cheney, Edwards, and Gore as VP picks were in July; Kemp and Lieberman were announced in early August.

Obviously, the machinations had been ongoing for months. So the likely nominee will begin putting together their short list once the election year dawns.
