It's Gephardt

Just got some scuttlebutt, top Gephardt aide Joyce Aboussie has been sent a private plane to join Dick Gephardt for....one can only assume the announcement that Dick Gephardt will be the next Vice President Nominee for the Democratic Party.

UPDATE: If Aboussie is being flown out and ordering staff to be ready for a change, it's hard to imagine that it is anything, but gearing up for an announcement that he is the VP nominee. He and Aboussie are incredibly close and she is his right hand. Unless this is a bit of disinformation, this is the real deal.

Dick Gephardt

Isn't he the one that grew up with union stories at the dinner table?

I just can't buy it will be Gephart - That will shock me -

I just heard on the drive home radio...from a DEM operative in NC...that it will be Edwards (she said it would break at around 9:30am tomorrow) she said she was 99% sure of it.

That Edwards has met Kerry twice that the press isn't reporting about?

I heard somewhere that Edwards was flying out as well. Is Kerry just drumming up cheap sensationalism before he makes his pick?

It makes sense Missouri is a swing state (although he has never one statewide or even run statewide to the best of my knowledge) and keeps labour happy

I think it will be Gephardt, I hope it will be Gephardt.

But this is not final word that Qerry picked Gephardt.

This is a supposition based on a rumor.

Conventional wisdom says that Gephardt couldn't deliver Missouri if he handed out $100 bills across the state. He hasn't run statewide for a reason.

No, I think that was Hillary whose mother sang, "Look for the Union Label," or "Solidarity Forever" at her nappie time.

At least, that's what Hillary said.

BTW, what's a WASP mommy singing a Union song for anyway?

The same reason she was named for Sir Edmond Hillary seven years BEFORE he climbed Mt. Everest when he was a beekeeper?

That's why I've always said Gephardt is going nowhere. Since 1994 he's been the biggest loser in the Democratic party. He's intimately tied to the biggest loss the Democrats have had in the 20th century.

I can't think of a less exciting ticket. Those two joined together could probably suck the free energy out of the Cherenobyl coffin.

I doubt it. He's just waaaaaay too boring. He would not bring the spark needed. I STILL think it could be Hillary...I pray it would be Al Sharpton.

Gephardt is a wise choice on Kerry's part, and Gephardt is clearly the most qualified Dem to be president. Indeed, he is more qualified than Kerry. It is a signal, that Kerry is not going to fundamentally disagree with the Bush policy on Iraq, even though he claims with his insipid generalities that he is.

yea I guess he likes certain Dicks but I know he hates Bush. I assume he probably likes Colin though.

My guess is...

Kerry will have EVERYone there for his big announcement. Gephart, Edwards, Hillary!,Dopey, Sneezy, Moe, Larry and Curley, Bill and Al, Clark and Dean. It'll be a love-in and they'll all hold hands and sing and afterward go see Michael Moore's movie again. The networks will wet themselves and we'll see nothing else (except the usual Bad News From Iraq) until the convention.

Is there anybody who'd be swayed on the basis of a Gephardt pick that is not voting for Kerry already. If DG is indeed the VP Nominee, I'm afraid he'll be having an "Al Gore" moment when the results from his home state roll in.

There's already one Dick running for VP. We can't possibly have two Dick's running for VP - Kerry's Dick notwithstanding.

Go to "Time Out"

"Wise" and "Kerry" in the same sentence is a Freeper Foul.

Sit in the chair for thirty minutes.
