THE VEEP STAKES: Jesse Jackson

THE VEEP STAKES: Jesse Jackson is, not surprisingly, urging Kerry to pick a black vice presidential candidate. Betsy Newmark says, “The only reasonable choice I could come up with from Kerry’s point of view is Harold Ford of Tennessee. Ford is a real up-and-comer in Democratic politics and would have a chance of bring Tennessee into Kerry’s camp”.

In contrast, Robert Novak writes that others are urging Sen. John Kerry to consider everybody’s favorite plagiarist, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware.
