just a quick diary - haven't seen this mentioned yet...

I was watching Leno last night, with Arianna Huffington as guest.  When asked who Obama would choose for VP, she first said Jeff Foxworthy - as he had been the #1 guest that evening.  After she got the laugh and the applause, she went on to say that Obama might reach across the aisle to look for candidates from the Republican party.  Namely, Senator Chuck Hagel, who's been one of the most outspoken Republican critics of the war and Bush's policies in Iraq.

Not a bad idea.  I've been saying for a long time that we need to start thinking about politicians in terms of their abilities, rather than their party affiliations.  I don't know much about Chuck, but he smells all right.
