Barack Obama has begun the search to find his running mate in the race to be US president. With the Democratic party’s nomination under his belt, he’s apppointed a three-member team to vet potential candidates. This as Hillary Clinton makes it known that she will declare her strong support for Obama this Saturday and rally supporters around him.
To help find his running mate, Obama has appointed Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the late President John Kennedy, as well as a former deputy attorney general and a business leader.
One of the big questions now, of course, after a fierce battle for the Democratic nomination, is whether Hillary Clinton could become Obama’s running mate.
Party officials, hungry to get a Democrat back into the White House, now have the fretful task of weighing up the forceful arguments for and against an Obama-Clinton ticket.
