Obama team weighs Nunn, Edwards as running mates

clipped from
Former presidential candidate John Edwards and
former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn are on a list of potential running
mates for Democrat Barack Obama, according to a Michigan
Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, who leads the Congressional
Black Caucus, said Thursday members of her caucus suggested the two
at a meeting with the officials vetting candidates. The vetting
team, Caroline Kennedy and Eric Holder, indicated the two were on
the list.
Cheeks Kilpatrick said, "Former Sen. Sam Nunn's name has come
up, as well as John Edwards' name has come up among our CBC
members. I reported that to them and they had both of those names
on their list."
