KERRY-McCAIN....The LA Times, the Washington Post, and the New York Times all have stories about a possible Kerry-McCain ticket today, but I think the LA Times has the scoop:

The Massachusetts senator broached the idea with McCain at least seven times, first raising it about 2 1/2 months ago, the source said Friday. All the conversations occurred over the phone but one, which took place on the floor of the Senate.

The last conversation was about a week ago, the McCain associate said. Each time, he said, McCain "respectfully declined, but firmly."

Seven times? WTF?

Look, the idea of a bipartisan ticket has some public appeal, even if the kind of activist liberals who read blogs don't think much of the idea, so I can understand Kerry being intrigued with the notion. But seven times? For chrissake, that just makes him look desperate. It's time to move on.
