God, we couldn't get this lucky. Via Ambinder:

"The following three Democrats are being vetted by Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy and there is independent evidence that Obama is taking a serious look at them:

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Gov. Tim Kaine, Sen. Evan Bayh.

Additionally, allies of Sen. Joe Biden say that he is under serious consideration, although he is not being subjected to the same level of vetting.

The huffing and puffing over Kaine is the result of Kaine's allies getting excited...and confirming what has been reported here and elsewhere, which is that Kaine is being vetted and that Obama is seriously considering him. Based on discussions with high-level Obama aides, I do not get the impression that Obama has made up his mind yet. These aides do say that Obama is narrowing his choices.

Now -- the way to look at these names, I think, is to analyze what picking each would say about the Obama presidency and what he expects in a vice president.

Sebelius and Kaine are both governing choices, not campaign choices. They're not going to match Obama's enthusiasm levels; they're not going to do all that well at the VP debates; they're not even going to solve political problems (even Kaine). But they are solid; they are centrist-in-style; they are Washington outsiders; they know how to balance budgets and deal with Republicans. As an historical analogy, think Clinton's choice of Gore."

Ok, that's a lefty view. But here is it is from the Right. "Anybody but Clinton".

Either of the above choices works for us on the right. It's not so amazing that the Light Being would pick a Biden or Kane so to not dim his - er, bulb. Ann Carpenter at Town Hall does her own vetting.

"Evan Bayh: Too young, too inexperienced to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

Joe Biden: Most likely to say something on October 30 that will blow it for Obama.

Tim Kaine: Massive eyebrow problems. Sort of creepy. (Photo evidence). I live in Virginia and can't think of anything notable he has done.

Kathleen Sebelius: Will outrage all the Hillary people because Obama picked a woman other than Hillary."

That last one is the most true.

The only "pick" that should scare us and which gives Obama the best chance to win is Hillary Clinton. Unless he does the backlash is going to cost him dearly in November.
