66. Is Kerry smart enough to choose Wes Clark?
Clark is beyond a doubt the most qualified, and IMO the best candidate for VP.

His qualifications are obvious, his charisma is obvious, but will Kerry choose him, or some milk toast VP who won't outshine him?

We are all smart enough to choose Clark. I just hope Kerry is.

When, oh when, will Kerry put us out of our misery and tell us who his VP will be?
