Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Something I was thinking of reading the OT yesterday was what Kos said lately: it's too early to really figure out how a VP candidate would work out by looking at polls. A lot of it is about name recognition.

Now, I like Obama's thinking about electoral politics. He has a long horizon and he thinks in structural terms about what his ticket needs to get people to vote for him. So I think he'll pick a running mate who will be a good fit over the longer term. For my money, I can see both Edwards and Webb working out, but Edwards would be risky -- it depends on whether Edwards can push through a narrative that he has renewed himself.

... quantity, while the ability of Webb to translate the same theory into practice is not as firmly established.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
