If true it's a pretty strategic and ballsy move to go with a female to steal away some of those women voters that maybe were behind Hilary and were on the fence. It's been a great time for women and minority candidates.

A move towards disenfranchised Hillary supporters?

From what I heard it's a total rumor and is NOT true.

On the one hand he gets his "out of the box choice" on the other hand the far right is happy because of her socially conservative views. Just like McCain could attack Obama for choosing an insider like Biden when he's preaching change, Obama could say "why are you challenging my age an inexperience when you chose someone three years younger than me who just became governor a couple of years ago"
