Caroline Kennedy for Obama's Vice President

Some Democrats want Kennedy to move from the search committee to the ticket.


Former GOP foe Mitt Romney is the rage in Sen. John McCain's circles as the Republican moves to pick a running mate with good business and economic creds—and moderately youthful good looks. But if you want a really juicy rumor, consider who some key Democrats want for Sen. Barack Obama's No. 2: his veep search aide, Caroline Kennedy. While many Democrats we talked to dissed the idea of a two-minority ticket, others feel it would boost the generational shift Obama represents. And, adds one fan of the idea: "Caroline is the good Kennedy." There's recent precedent. President Bush picked his vice presidential search team leader, Dick Cheney.
