The Next Best Thing to Being President
With John Edwards's decision to quit the race, expected to be announced officially today, John Kerry's nomination as the Democratic candidate for president is secure. Speculation about his choice for vice president can now begin in earnest. Mr. Edwards himself is an obvious choice: a skilled campaigner, he would also attract Southern voters. Other possibilities include Senator Evan Bayh of Indiana and Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico, who have both regional appeal and executive experience, and dark-horse candidates like former Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia. Amid this conjecture, however, one name is conspicuously absent: Bill Clinton.
Ah, the running mate speculation begins...but what would THIS ticket be called? "JFK2 & JFK3"?
