The Corner


I’ve seen several stories on how he’s the numer-one choice among Democratic voters to be Veep. Two thoughts: First: this may be true, but 8 months before the election and just after the primary battles, this is probably mostly to do with the fact that Edwards is one of the only Veep-quality Democrats fresh in peoples’ minds. Second, this is all so premature. Kerry gets only a few chances to make real news now. He gets his convention speech, maybe that trip to Iraq he’s hinting about and his choice of Veep. Meanwhile, the President of the United States is always news. Kerry’s not going to pick his veep for a longtime, particularly because he’s such an indecisive guy when he can be.
