Stressing fiscal responsibility, lower taxes, job creation and lean government, Bayh's tenure as governor was highlighted by eight years without raising taxes, the largest single tax cut and largest budget surplus in state history, "welfare-to-work"–type social programs, increasing annual school funding, high academic standards and new college opportunities, the creation of over 350,000 new jobs, the strengthening of law enforcement and improved environmental quality. He signed the 21st Century Scholars Act in 1992, legislation that states that every child in Indiana who is eligible for the free lunch program in a public school, graduates from high school and signs a pledge not to experiment with illegal drugs is entitled to a full tuition scholarship to an Indiana public university of his or her choice. By the end of his second term, Bayh had an approval rating of nearly 80 percent.

Instead of partisan bickering about who said what, I'd like to have an open discussion on who Above Politics thinks Obama will choose for his VP. I encourage someone else to make a similar thread for McCain.
My bet's on Evan Bayh.

Personally, i get this feeling that Obama's VP doesnt really mean anything, whereas the McCain campaign seems to be hanging on for deal life on finding a good quality VP.

I would love to see Joe Biden or Chuck Hagel. Biden because he's a pit bull and Hagel because he's a republican who has been against the war in Iraq.
Forget Colin Powell. If you think the people out there that are not voting for Obama because he's Black are pissed, just wait and see if he picks Powell.

Bayh is a good choice in my opinion, seems like things have gone down hill in here since he has been out of the governors office.
