    Exclamation Oh fucking hell: John Kerry to be Barack Obama's vice pres pick?!?

    Wtf, did he smoke some serious crack while on vacation?!!!

    Whynot just take the presidency, put it in a nice box and wrap it in a bow, and have it mailed to McCain's old folks home.

    BOSTON (WBZ) ― Barack Obama has yet to name a vice presidential nominee and some are wondering if he might turn to Massachusetts to round out the ticket.

    John Kerry for vice president?

    Don't dismiss the notion just yet.

    Some political insiders are telling WBZ it could happen.

    So why would Obama reach out to Kerry as his choice?

    Kerry brings more money and name recognition to the table than any other name on the Obama list so far. Americans do tend to love a comeback kid and this would be the most amazing political comeback since Richard Nixon came back from the dead forty years ago.

    "I'm not looking for any new job, I'm running for re-election," Kerry told WBZ last week.

    Asked about the V.P. buzz, his press secretary told WBZ in a statement Thursday night:

    "If I was bi-lingual, I'd say no in multiple languages. The only job John Kerry is running for, contemplating, or considering is the one he already has."

    If you're laughing off the idea of Kerry back on the national ticket again, I don't blame you. While he came close four years ago, his campaign was widely derided as, to put it politely, clumsy.

    But consider some reasons why Obama might now turn to Kerry as a running mate.

    Polls show many voters question Obama's foreign policy credentials to be a wartime president. As a decorated veteran and longtime member of the senate foreign relations committee, Kerry could fill that gap.

    Obama suffers from being a new face on the political scene, but Kerry - warts and all - is well known to the voters, and in 2004, he did draw more votes than any democrat ever has.

    And judging from a new anti-smear web site funded by Kerry's political action committee, Kerry would eagerly assume the role of attack dog... Allowing a nominee who prefers to float above the fray to minimize the amount of political hardball he has to play.

    One other note: the vice presidential nominee will address the convention on Wednesday night, August 27.

    The theme set for that evening - a salute to America's veterans.

    The Obama campaign says we shouldn't read anything into that. We'll soon see if they're blowing smoke on that one.

    I swear to god. They're TRYING to lose what should be a sure thing.

    Kerry is probably advising him too, what with the pantywaist way the Obama campaign has been traipsing along lately.

    If Obama picks Kerry as VP then he's an idiot and he's throwing the election away.

    But I doubt Kerry is even in the running. Since Obama's playing his pick close to the vest just about every name is being tossed out as a possibility.

    It was very difficult for Kerry to lose that election, but he managed it.

    I think Obama's peeps are throwing names out of people that are no way in contention, just to throw everyone off the trail....

    I highly, highly doubt this.... I mean really, Kerry is the kiss of death on a ticket. Obama's not stupid and he won't pick him.

    Louis, good point.

    Kerry brings more money and name recognition to the table than any other name on the Obama list so far.
    Actually, that would be Hillary...by far.

    i never understood why people hate kerry so much. sure, he's not the most charismatic guy but he's very intelligent, and he's got class. but i guess that and the fact that he speaks french makes him a snobby elitist or something... i always liked him and teresa.
    but then i like al gore too and i never understood why people didn't like him either.

    I don't hate him, he's just weak and ineffective and got smashed by Bush because of that. HE brings nothing to the table, least of all any kind of personality. He's a zombie on stage.

    I like John Kerry. I thought he was a great candidate and I voted for him. Unfortunately, his reputation was demolished after his run with Bushy.

    Still, this would be the kiss of death for Obama.

    I don't hate John Kerry either. I just think he's boring. Plus, anytime a decorated war veteran can let a draft dodger like George Bush call his military service into question then he doesn't deserve to be president.
