I am asking because many suggest Kerry or Edwards as the VP nominee. Whether we like it or not, both lost their chance (yes, I know, Ohio, etc. but the final result is the same).

Thus, I am not sure about having a "loser" on a ticket. (Oh, and I supported Edwards in both the 2004 and 2008 primaries).
