While I’m on the topic
I’m may as well get all of my Veep wisdom out of my system before Kerry actually makes a choice and deprives us of the topic. Hillary is a bad choice for many reasons. The Veep shouldn’t upstage the guy on top. The Veep should not be a senator from a state with a republican governor (thus giving them a seat). However, the Hillary option has one very strong element in its favor. The sight of Bill Safire and all the little freeper’s heads exploding would do wonders for our morale.
