Quick picks for running mates:

Obama goes with Bayh. Whether or not this is wise has yet to be determined. Biden has way too many soundbites criticizing Obama's Iraq strategy. Hillary would turn his campaign into a circus. Richardson is too inconsistent. And the Virginia guys are simply too risky. Bayh mirrors Obama. That's my bet.

McCain's pick is less clear. I'm going with an out-of-left-field darkhorse and saying Kay Bailey Hutchison. He wants Lieberman or Ridge, but the GOP would never allow it. He can't stand Romney, although I wouldn't be surprised if this ended up being the ticket. Pawlenty is a maybe, but I don't see it happening. Jindal would be a great choice, but would take away McCain's "no experience" complaint against Obama. Hutchison would be superb. She would mirror McCain in many ways and potentially bring in some of the disenchanted Hillary supporters.

Just my thoughts. Tomorrow we'll see...when Obama "reveals his running mate to the world"

Give it a rest, Senator. You're not the center of the universe.
