Now, of course, picking VP material based on a quota is a ragingly stupid idea, but at least he's making the gesture -- gesture being the animating force of the modern Democratic party -- and VP is, after all, a nothing job (McCain's pithy description of the job: to inquire daily as to the health of the president).
I don't think it will happen -- too many possible negatives -- but I can't help but quote the top of the ticket on this:
Bring. It. On.
