I think it will be Vilsack for VP

I've come to that conclusion. Its a safe bet and it follows the midwest strategy that has been advocated by a lot of the Democratic establishment.

Let me make this clear: while I think Kerry will end up picking Tom Vilsack, he is by no means MY first choice. I would pick Mary Landrieu, Wes Clark or Dick Celeste (see below post for Celeste explanation).

But, it seems like Kerry's choice has come down to either John Edwards, Dick Gephardt or Vilsack. I'll put my money on Vilsack (though my heart will be on Gephardt, a man I have always admired.)
