    a promotion, a stepping stone or a legacy.

    Clark, Nunn, Sebellius.

    Sebelius is out because if your gonna have a woman it ought to be Clinton, or you will drive her supporters insane.

    That leaves Clark and Nunn.
    You can have Bayh or strickland but they have no charisma at all. Rendell would be good in PA and with the Jewish vote, but has skeletons. Same with Richardson, but add to it 2 minorities on one ticket!?

    Bloomberg, Economics and Jewish vote, but wont carry hard working white vote. He will add to the Elite meme.

    That's my take.

      Nunn is just too conservative to be promoting to heir apparent of the Democratic party.

      And the Jewish vote will go Democratic like it does every year, by close to the same margins as it always does; the only Jewish problem people should be asking about is the GOP's, when one looks at the numbers, let alone what some of the wingnut McCain endorsers have said.

      Do we really want another YEAR of trying to explain to everyone why the Democratic nominee voted to authorize the Iraq war before they were against it?
