Greater Boston's Jeff Keating recently solicited VP predictions from, in his words, "three of the smartest political commentators around": me, Joe Sciacca of the Boston Herald, and Jon Keller of WBZ (and former Phoenix reporter). Our responses are on the GB blog. Just how wicked smart the three of us really are, I'll leave to you all to judge.
I predict Gov. Tim Kaine of Virginia for Obama, with Sen. Claire McCaskill as my second pick; and Gov. Mark Sanford of SC for McCain. Sciacca says Sebelius or Edwards for Obama, and Crist or Romney for McCain; Keller says Crist for McCain and either Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybek or Joe Biden for Obama. See the link for the reasoning behind our choices.
