The shaman class has several interesting choices when thinking about PvP content in Wrath of the Lich King. Still, the most obvious choices when playing Elemental Shaman are Draenei for the Alliance and Orc for the Horde. Alliance players don’t have another option, so it’s an easy decision!
All of the Horde race options for Elemental Shaman can work in PvP, and your choice largely comes down to personal preference, playstyle, and aesthetics. Orcs are harder to stun and offer good burst, Tauren are tougher and have an excellent CC ability (albeit on a long cooldown), and Trolls have CC resistance and the always-strong Berserking.
Until the release of The Burning Crusade expansion, there were no Alliance races that could be Shaman, so the introduction of the Draenei (affectionally known as space goats) meant a whole new class for Alliance players. Unfortunately, in WotLK, they remained the only choice for Alliance Shaman.
