I had stated my Veep preference soon after Kerry became the presumptive nominee. The conventional wisdom has the money on Edwards, but I am not sure if that would be the best pick right now. You know the Clinton establishment has their eyes set on 2008, and don't want to have to deal with an up and comer like Edwards, should Kerry let the elections slip away.

Now, the question is who WILL he pick. I still think Edwards is too ambitious of a politician for serious consideration at this point. If I were a betting man, I'd go with Iowa Governor Vilsack. Iowa polls show Kerry leading, and this pick will not only lock in those electorals, but provide the geographic balance needed of a veep pick.

We'll all find out next week.
