Chicago Sun-Times
The scoop from Washington

Caroline Kennedy and Eric Holder, Obama vice president vetters, left Democratic National Committee headquarters as Plouffe started briefing.


Asked about this spotting, Plouffe said, "that's too bad."

Ploeuffe said the Obama vetting team remains at two people--Caroline Kennedy and Eric Holder. Jim Johnson, jettisoned after questions were raised about sweetheart mortgage deals, has not been replaced."


Every time I mention Caroline Kennedy's name as a Vice Presidential running mate for Obama, whoever I am speaking to, their eyes light up as if I've come up with something remarkable; but to me she is a no-brainer as his running mate. She should pick herself, and after Obabm serves two terms, she will become the first female president of the United States of America; Imagine that.

I said after her and Ted announced their support for Obama that she was positioning herself for 2012 if not VP.
Obvious to me ..I hope she does!
