    Too bad. I like the guy even though my brother claims he's a bad Babe Ruth League parent.

    He's more important to Dems in the senate anyways.

    He's got baggage, but it's still a shame. He speaks his mind. He's a considerable asset in the Senate.

    It's going to be Hillary by default.

    I imagine we'll hear more and more politicians "bowing out" of consideration right before Obama makes his pick.

    I think Webb would have been a great VP pick for Obama. What a shame.

    Not to be flippant, but is it a shame because you really wanted to vote against the guy or because you wanted to see him in office?

    Because I think it would have really helped Obama, and I don't want him to win. I don't really want McCain to win, either, so I'm kinda screwed until 2012.

    I might go as far as to say Hillary is emerging as the front runner.

    Strickland, Webb and Edwards are out. There aren't that many options out there.

    There are even fewer on the republican side.

    Hil now the pronounced frontrunner at Intrade, but even there, nobody's willing to step up and take less than 4-1 on her.

    The two now closest to HRC on the bid side at Intrade are now Sebelius and Bayh.
