It's "John-John" After All

Displaying the sort of media savvy that will propel him to the White House, John Kerry acted quickly to put an end to excuses to use the word "Veepstakes."

I think the importance of picking Edwards is not so much that picking him will bost the Kerry campaign, as that not picking him would have sunk the campaign. The clamor from the masses for a Kerry-Edwards ticket, and against a Kerry-Gephardt ticket, was overwhelming. Insofar as Kerry is trying to feed off of the energetic grassroots he inherited from Howard Dean, picking someone other than Edwards would have represented a remarkable deafness to his supporters.
