Item: MAC: MIKE STILL IN VEEPSTAKES

Analysis: The question is: On which issues do Bloomberg and McCain agree? Not that many...

Item: Camille Paglia thinks Kathleen Sebelius would be an ideal VP choice because she "is a polished public presence who epitomizes that cordial, smoothly reassuring, and blandly generic WASPiness that has persistently defined the American power structure in business and government and that has weirdly resisted wave after wave of immigration since the mid-19th century."

Analysis: Can you imagine Paglia as a vetter? "Did you ever read Michel Foucault?"

Item: The New Republic's Michael Crowley makes the resume case for former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-GA).

Analysis: A compelling case. But what's missing from this profile is what's missing from every veepstakes profile: evidence of whether Obama likes Nunn, trusts Nunn, knows Nunn, and could work well with him for eight years.
