Obama / Warner ?

After Va. Governor Tim Kaine endorsed Obama, Obama mentioned Mark Warner. At that point:
The crowd of VIPs roared, and then began to chant: “VP! VP! VP!” Smiling, Obama only referred to his and Warner’s matching blue ties. “I want you to notice how we’re dressed tonight,” he said.

Warner for VP. I like that idea a lot. Warner is a centrist, pro-business Democrat (and pretty damn smart as well). That will certainly help Obama with those like me, who fear many Democrats are closet socialists. Think about it, Barack!

I like the prospects of that ticket too. The major detraction would be a lack of foreign policy experience for either candidate.

I'm trying hard to be open minded about Democrats these days. But the economics usually kills any chance they have.

I saw Warner speak at the World Economic Forum (not live -- C-Span). He was pretty impressive on international affairs.
