Sure, it's still premature to talk about Obama's running mate, but this isn't sexual performance we're talking about. Premature is OK. Obama has some room to be creative here, so there are probably 20+ names that could be in contention. I'm looking to start with 16 , from which we can narrow down to our favorite.

So far, I've got 14 names that are legit contenders and sweet sixteen-worthy:

Governors: Tim Kaine, Janet Napolitano, Bill Richardson, Brian Schweitzer, Kathleen Sebelius, Ted Strickland
Senators: Blanche Lincoln, Claire McCaskill, Bill Nelson, Jack Reed, Jim Webb
Others: Wes Clark, Tom Daschle, John Edwards

Among the nominees for the last two spots in the Sweet 16 are:

Joe Biden
Michael Bloomberg
Bill Bradley
William Cohen
Chris Dodd
Jim Doyle
Dick Gephardt
Anthony Zinni

Any other nominations? Which two from the second list would you elevate to the Sweet 16? Any objections to my top 14?

If he's real ballsy/crazy he could pick Colin Powell. Also lets not forget Phil Bredesen.
