Matt Stoller makes the case for Wesley Clark as Vice President and it's a pretty good case. Indeed, it makes me wonder why I hadn't heard him randomly speculated about before since as far as speculation and case-making goes he's as good a choice as any. One idiosyncratic interest of mine in this would be that it would provide an opportunity for some discussion of how nutty the Kristol/McCain attack from the right on the Clinton administration's prosecution of the Kosovo War was.

Speaking personally, though, I think I may have already lost interest in VP speculation. I'm ready to move on to cabinet speculation, except I fear I'll jinx things. Plus at some point in the next couple of months someone needs to write the inevitable column calling on Obama and/or McCain to name a "shadow cabinet."
