The GOP and DEM conventions are fast approaching, guys; so the VP choice needs to be made.
Both the Obama and McCain Campaigns are keeping things pretty tight and close, but “hints” are coming out as they begin asking potential candidates for their “papers” (security clearance; potential “smoking guns”, etc).
I think that they both need to meet certain criteria:
They can either solidify a shaky voting block or deliver part of a voting block.
They don’t lead to a loss of a particular voting block and
They are “safe” and relatively non-controversial.
McCain is asking for the papers of Virginia Rep. Eric Cantor, the Chief Deputy Minority Whip in the House:
What he could bring to the Ticket:
Strong support among Conservatives (which could help quiet their luke-warm feelings about McCain).
He is Jewish and a Strong Supporter of Israel.
Nothing is coming up real controversial…yet…
Obama is still keeping things pretty hush-hush…
Thoughts on Canton?
Who is Obama seriously considering?
