Kerry will pick Gephardt — and he'll be glad he did.

--John J. Miller in National Review

Kerry will surely want a running mate eager to eviscerate the opposition, particularly in the debate against Vice President Cheney (or, failing that, a Vice President who will bring his home state along -- and Dick Gephardt has a better chance of doing both than Edwards).

--Joe Klein in Time

Please tell me this is just the same sort of pundit idiocy that gave us so many stories four years ago about how Tom Ridge was a lock for Bush's #2 slot. I just don't think I could bear the mealy-mouthed fossil Gephardt in the #2 slot. Don't do it, John.
