The Congressional Black Caucus forwarded two names to Barack Obama’s veep team: Sam Nunn and John Edwards. (Story at Townhall.) The Nunn pick is in line with what I wrote about the veepstakes in February:
Obama’s pick is a bit more difficult to game out. I think he’d also go for an older “statesman” type to bolster his weak foreign policy/national security credentials. I’m thinking Lee Hamilton. Moderate Democrat. Long resume with experience on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the Iraq Study group, Hart-Rudman Commission, the President’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, and, of course, the 9/11 Commission circus.
Nunn would bring weight and gravitas to the ticket.
John Edwards would bring what? Hairspray?
Speaking of which, I have to get in another Pooh photoshop. This one’s from reader Erin. Instant classic:
Reminds me of Allahpundit’s 2004 classic:
The more things change…

Obama admin happy to provide proof of historic levels of transparency, but you’ll have to *FOIA it (*expect 3 to 6 decades for delivery)
