Fafblog Weighs In On The VEEP-Stakes

And hilarity ensueth, as Faf examins the pros and cons of Joe Biden, Jim Webb, John Edwards, Evan Bayh, Hillary Clinton and Galacticus, Destroyer of Worlds. Galacticus comes off surprising well, ceteris paribus. I mean, yeah, he wants to devour your world. But he's not hiding his agenda. You know where he stands.

One sample: JOHN EDWARDS:
Pros: who could be more qualified to potentially succeed the president than the man whose sole qualification for the presidency was losing the previous race for the vice-presidency?
Cons: phony aura of fighting populism may conflict with campaign's preferred phony aura of sunny togetherness.
Merciless. Faf's often in a league by himself. But, as the comments illustrate, on this matter, at least, it is an open field.
