Speculation on Kerry VP Hunt:

According to the Washington Post, John Kerry has been intensely deliberating over his choice of a running mate, acknowledging the need for a moderate or conservative candidate to help him appear more centrist.

On Wednesday, he met for 90 minutes with Rep. Dick Gephardt and friends of Kerry told the Post that Kerry considers the former House minority leader a ready-made president and unlikely to upstage or overshadow him.

At the same time, Sen. John Edwards has been campaigning hard for the job, raising money and heading rallies for Kerry. Edwards also benefits from the support of Democrats close to former president Clinton, and in Congress and from favorable polling among registered voters.

The Post notes that Kerry, however, has expressed concerns about Edwards√?¬Ę√Ę‚??¬¨√Ę‚??¬Ę lack of presidential quality, remarking to aides after the primaries, “What makes him think he can be president?”
