Veepstakes

Wes Clark on MSNBC.
My friend made the case to me that Wes Clark would be a good VP candidate. I think this may be right. Clark can't run a campaign, but he seems like a good surrogate. Jim Webb has the same advantage. They are good choices, not because they balance out Obama's lack of "toughness", but because either of them would help challenge the Republican narrative on national security. Webb showed he could do this in his thumping response to Bush's State of Union, though he may be a chancy pick: usually, people go for someone who won't rock the boat.
