A whole lotta veeping around

Whole lot of speculation in the blogs that Kerry is about to name Dick Gephardt as his VP choice. Archpundit started it, then Political Wire and Kos picked it up. There's a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth in the various comment threads, as the blog population really doesn't like Gephardt (not that I can blame them). I'm just going to say two things: The only comparison that matters for Kerry's choice, whether Gephardt or someone else, is to Cheney, and I'm not going to worry about the rest of it until it becomes more than blog speculation. (I say that with all due respect to Archpundit, who has some sources and is claiming to get this from a good one.) When we know more, I'll say more.

UPDATE: The die has (maybe) been cast, depending on whom you ask. If you really want to read more about this now, Archpundit has a roundup of reactions, while Ezra gets on the not-so-bad bus. (Oh, and read Ezra's Gadflyer article. It's good, and I want people like him to get more non-blog exposure.)
