Always a bridesmaid...

I heard an interesting rumor tonight, via . He posited that Edwards is trying to cast this as a two-person race (Obama-Edwards), and then said something surprising. The rumor is that Edwards might consider a veep run, round 2, with Obama.

When you think about it, it makes some sense. Edwards is still a young guy politically speaking, and could easily run on his own after being vice-president. However, if he doesn't, and doesn't get the nomination, his political career is practically over (approaching Harold Stassen territory then.)

I think that, especially if Edwards or Obama is the nominee, Richardson becomes the Veep candidate. He's got "experience," and knows more about foreign policy, but not in a threatening Darth Cheney sort of way. He reaches out to different constituenies - the West, gun owners, latinos, etc. And if it's Obama/Richardson, adding Richardson won't turn off any more racists than Obama will alone.

I love Richardson for Secretary of State.
