Obama VP Shocker: Edwards Emerges as Finalist

No, not the Silky Pony, silly, but rather an obscure Texas Congressman.
Presidential candidate Barack Obama is hours away from naming his running mate, as little-known Texas congressman Chet Edwards is emerging as a finalist.

Democratic officials say that Edwards was one of the few Democrats whose background was checked by Obama's campaign, and he was a finalist for the job.

Edwards is among a small circle of people mentioned, including Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius and Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware and Evan Bayh of Indiana.
Apparently the Edwards who doesn't cheat on his cancer-stricken wife comes with the approval of Nancy Pelosi.

: Allahpundit thinks Obama/Edwards has great tabloid potential.
Exit question: How unspeakably awesome would it be to see headlines in major papers about “Obama/Edwards” side by side on the newsstand with Enquirer coverage of an “Edwards love child!”?
