Word on the Street: Barack’s VP

“Do you think Barack Obama should choose Hillary Clinton to be his running mate?”

Nicole, 23
"I think that he should choose whoever he feels would complete his ticket. He's a very resourceful guy, so I'm actually curious to see what sort of other tricks he has under his hat."
Mark, 25
"Not for a second should he choose Hillary Clinton for his running mate. I think the Clintons have shown that most of their rhetoric is just that: rhetoric. I think they have done a real good job of deceiving the people that typically vote Democrat because they are low-income."
Dylan, 25
"I would just like to see someone who is going to change things in this country. If that's who he thinks it takes, that's fine with me."
Adam, 26
"No, I don't. I think that there's too much baggage there. Some of the things that her campaign did regarding him caused too many problems between them to really allow a cooperative partnership once they are the White House."
Julian, 26
"Yes, I do. Mainly because the Democratic Party is divided right now and we are in a situation where we need to win. I personally feel that there are a lot of questions about Obama like his association with Reverend Wright that make people feel uneasy. And Hillary has a lot of people that support her. And overall it’s about unity and getting a Democrat in the White House."
