Gov. Tim Kaine, Virginia Democrat, says he doubts Sen. Barack Obama will ask him to be his vice presidential running mate, though he added that he would be willing if asked.

“If it happened, it would be hard to tell him no, but it’s pretty hard for me see that happening,” Mr. Kaine told the Associated Press yesterday. “It’s really not something I spend a lot of time thinking about.”

Mr. Kaine had told the Daily Progress of Charlottesville earlier in the day that he didn’t know what would happen if the offer came his way. Then he added, “I signed on to help Barack win. If he wants me to help him in that way, it’d be hard to say no.”

Speculation about Mr. Kaine as a potential running mate has lingered since he endorsed Mr. Obama in February 2007, one of the first governors to do so.
