A partial transcript of Tonight's City of Chicago and City of Aurora edition of Public Affairs [featuring Pete Giangreco] is included, below:
Jeff Berkowitz: Who would that choice [for Obama’s VP] be?

Pete Giangreco: Well…I would love if Senator Lugar[R-IN] were willing to do it; I think he would be an interesting guy.

Jeff Berkowitz: Do you think Barack Obama would make that offer?

Pete Giangreco: Oh, I have no idea. I think it is a little presumptuous to be talking about Vice-Presidents when we haven’t quite sewn up this nomination yet.

Jeff Berkowitz: Who else is on the short list [for VP]?

Pete Giangreco: Oh, I have no idea.

Jeff Berkowitz: Who would you predict would be on the short list…

Pete Giangreco: Oh, there are a lot of talented people.

Jeff Berkowitz: Give me…the top three or four, in your guess, for VP?

Pete Giangreco: Maybe Evan Bayh

Jeff Berkowitz: …isn’t he supporting Hillary?

Pete Giangreco: Yeah, sure, who cares?

Jeff Berkowitz: …Keep going, he is, of course, a senator from Indiana.

Pete Giangreco: I think folks like Claire McCaskill, Kathleen Sebelius.

Jeff Berkowitz: Claire McCaskill would be?

Pete Giangreco: The [2nd year] Senator from Missouri. Kathleen Sebelius, who is a two term elected governor from a very red state, Kansas, where Barack Obama’s mother’s family is from, is interesting. She gave the response on the State of the Union. She is a really solid person.

Jeff Berkowitz: Keep going.

Pete Giangreco: Janet Napolitano [Governor, Arizona] is an interesting choice….Don’t forget John Edwards would probably make a good VP.

Jeff Berkowitz: Bill Richardson [Gov. of New Mexico]?

Pete Giangreco: Bill Richardson has shown tremendous ability.
