The New York Post says Kerry has decided on Gephardt for veep. I saw Susan Estrich on Fox News last night saying she’d bet her house the pick was Edwards. Personally, I think the Post is probably right; by all accounts, Kerry was deeply offended by Edwards not “knowing his place” in the Democratic hierarchy, and I get the impression that John French Kerry is not the kind of guy who’ll drop a grudge easily.
But then again, I was the political genius who declared Kerry “toast” about two weeks before Iowa. I also flatly predicted that Kerry would pick Evan Bayh for veep, which looks, ah, unlikely at this time. And then there’s this (hat tip to Pejman).

UPDATE, 8AM: As if to mock me, the AP and most of the networks are now saying it’s Edwards.
UPDATE, 8:30 AM: Kerry emails supporters that it’s Edwards (from NRO).
This is why I don’t go to Vegas.
