    Washington -- Rarely has so much speculation generated so little information. James Johnson, a well-regarded figure in Democratic politics asked by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., to screen prospective running mates, has for weeks quietly made rounds on Capitol Hill, talking to dozens of House members and senators and consulting party officials and stalwarts about the ticket. This much is known: The Kerry campaign is seriously vetting at least two candidates for vice president, but the process is still wide open, and the campaign has all but ruled out announcing the choice in May. In interviews with more than 20 Democratic...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Democrat John Kerry's campaign has begun background checks of top running mate prospects, including Dick Gephardt, John Edwards and Iowa Gov.

    House Dems lobby for Kerry-Gephardt ticket Midwestern ties, fundraising power cited by Rep. Brown By Lauren Shepherd Several House Democrats are pushing for a Washington-insider presidential ticket featuring the presumptive nominee, Sen. John Kerry (Mass.), and former candidate Rep. Dick Gephardt (Mo.). The idea of a Kerry-Gephardt ticket has started gaining ground among congressional members eyeing Gephardt’s 14 terms in Washington, his large fundraising network and his Midwestern ties. Rep. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said Gephardt would be the best fit for the Democratic ticket, despite the congressman’s lackluster performance in the party’s presidential nominating process. Gephardt dropped out after finishing...

    Texas could still play role for Edwards Thursday, February 26, 2004 RALEIGH, N.C. — A few weeks ago, this state's senior senator was considered a true long shot for the Democratic presidential nomination. But John Edwards may still have a shot when the primary marathon reaches Texas on March 9. Edwards has become the last man standing against front-runner and fellow Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts. Edwards has stayed up not by winning but, in the expectations-happy media battle that characterizes nomination fights, by repeatedly doing better than anticipated. His surprise second-place finish in Iowa killed off Dick Gephardt. And...

    Kerry Says Bush Has Forgotten Real 9/11 Heroes By Patricia Wilson MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Democratic White House front-runner John Kerry (news - web sites) on Tuesday accused President Bush (news - web sites) of showing up "when the bagpipes are wailing" and then forgetting America's real heroes -- firefighters, police and other emergency personnel.

Kerry's most important Southern ally has a suggestion to turn around Kerry's so-far losing ways below the Mason-Dixon - sign up John Edwards. U.S. Rep. James Clyburn told the Herald he'll urge Kerry to tap Edwards as his vice presidential running mate, saying Kerry's South Carolina defeat shows he needs a Southerner's help to beat President Bush here this fall. ``I'll encourage him,'' the prominent South Carolina Democrat said. ``(Kerry) can strengthen himself by getting Edwards on the ticket.''
