Kerry told to seek mate with 'balance' - The Washington Times: Nation/Politics: "Democratic leaders are advising Sen. John Kerry to take great care in picking his running mate and select someone who neutralizes his Northeast liberal reputation and doesn't eclipse him in the charm department. "
What politician would NOT eclipse Kerry in charm? Ross Perot, maybe? Hillary? Nader? James Trafficant (assuming he will get out of prison in time)? Kerry will have a very difficult choice if he follows this advice.
