Via The Boston Globe, I see that The Note at ABC News has a VP pick for Kerry:
The ABC News online political newsletter "The Note" reported that Kerry held a late-night meeting last Thursday at the Washington home of former secretary of state Madeleine K. Albright and that the person he favors for his running mate attended. The newsletter said that in checking the schedule of Kerry's prospective running mates, only Representative Richard A. Gephardt of Missouri was in town.
Hmmmm -- what if "the person he favors for his running mate attended" this meeting because "the person he favors for his running mate" is Albright?
I know the Right sees her as incompetent -- but how does the public at large see her? I'd say smart, gracious and tough. A foreign policy wonk who seems like your grandmother.
If the meeting involved Kerry, Gephardt, and Albright, I'd say she was the best choice in the room.
