Historically balanced tickets in the past few years:

Ronald Reagan, a very conservative candidate, chose the more moderate George H.W. Bush as his running mate in 1980.

John McCain, a moderate Republican, chose Sarah Palin who is a very conservative and rather young woman, as his running mate in the 2008 election. He also hoped this would add the appeal of the ticket to women.

When JFK, a New Englander, chose lyndon B Johnson from Texas, it was in an attempt to gain support from Southern Democrats.

These are just a few, because I think if you look at most presidential elections throughout history (since the 12th Amendment in 1804 which split the ballots for Vice President and President) you will find that most candidates chose someone as their running mate who will in some way complement their strengths and add greater appeal to the ticket as a whole.

How can a vice presidential candidate help balance the ticket?

In the US, presidential elections place the nominated people from the two major parties, on the same ticket. This means that when presidential hopeful, Barack Obama headed the Democratic presidential ticket, his vice president nominee was Joe Biden. The main "balance" created by Obama, was to have a seasoned well known democrat, Biden, paired with a newly known presidential candidate, Obama. The voting public then sees a ticket whereby their votes can be made based on a Chicago, Illinois new comer, Obama and a well known Biden.There are better examples of this balance attempt, however. Perhaps the best one was when President Lincoln ran for reelection in 1864. Lincoln was assured to receive all the Republican votes, and he decided the best way to gather Democratic votes was to have the Tennessee Democrat, Andrew Johnson as his running mate. This was a great balance that would attract both Democrats and Republicans to vote "together" for a well balanced ticket.
