VICE PRESIDENT….According to scuttlebutt being reported in every major newspaper, John Kerry will have announced his running mate by the time I wake up on Tuesday. Since I’ll be sleeping through this announcement, consider this an open thread to predict, cheer, boo, or just generally kvetch about the future vice president of the United States.

UPDATE: It’s John Edwards! Good choice.

UPDATE 2: The New York Post apparently disagrees. Or used to, anyway. They really need to watch this jumping-the-gun business….
