Chris Orr suggested a couple of months ago that Obama should pick Nunn as veep for the sake of headline writers worldwide. Nunn's presumed advantage in this regard might not be as strong as was thought: consider, for instance, the RCP blog headline "Is Kaine Able?" Webb, who sadly refused to be vetted, had immense potential (Webb of deceit, pornographic Webb sites, Webb cams, etc.); of the others, Biden, Dodd, and Reed are perhaps not entirely hopeless. ("The Dude, a-Biden"? Maybe not.) Sebelius (she bilious? ugh) is the worst.
