"The First Brilliant Move in the Vice Presidential Search"

Al Giordano:
Associated Press has a cryptic one-sentence report out:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Obama taps three people to lead veep search, including Caroline Kennedy.

Now, if only she’d pull a Cheney (the head of Bush’s VP search efforts who picked himself).

The signals sent with this move are multiple. They suggest a search for a running mate that is ideologically compatible, acceptable to the Kennedy wing of the party, that acknowledges the generational aspect of the change at hand, and, importantly, it brackets the disqualifying words uttered by one Veep aspirant late last month and looms as an ever-present reminder of vigilance regarding such unspeakable acts. Obama has picked someone in Caroline Kennedy who nobody is going to be able to push around. Nice.
