A lot of press speculation lately as to who will or should be the VP picks for each of the presidential candidates. What would be the most important determinant for you if you were running for president and had to pick a VP? Mine are (in order of importance).
For me, a VP who would be unlikely to conspire a plot to have me assassinated. Perhaps someone who doesn't even really want the job, or is only willing to do it part time while they sell Mary Kay. A popular conspiracy theory implicates LBJ in in the assassination of JFK, so I don't think I'm without reason here.
