Did I just notice...
Julian Castro, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, is the odds-on favorite to be Hillary Clinton's running mate, while South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is Donald Trump's.
Here are the top three in each (with my thoughts in italics):
Julian Castro, 5/2
Young, Hispanic, offsets Marco Rubio.
Tim Kaine, 6/1
I've read that Virginia is expected to be the most crucial state this time around.
Martin O'Malley, 8/1
Consolation prize for working so hard?
Nikki Haley, 4/1
Shores up any Republican candidate with women and people of color.
Marco Rubio, 5/1
Been talked about forever: young, Hispanic and from Florida.
Ted Cruz, 7/1
Only if Cruz comes up short and strikes a deal at the convention.
John Kasich, 7/1
Republicans can't win the White House without Ohio.
