Kerry Aides See McCain As Perfect Running Mate

The Boston Globe listens inside Sen. John Kerry's campaign for speculation about his running mate. "If there is a consensus among Kerry aides about who would be the boldest and most potent pick, it is Senator John S. McCain of Arizona -- a Republican."

"While Kerry has talked about his search with few people other than his wife, campaign manager, and the head of his search committee, Washington power broker James A. Johnson, many high-level staff members believe -- based on Kerry's past and recent comments -- that McCain will get serious consideration."

MSNBC reports "Speculation is running rampant over a possible Kerry-McCain ticket, in part because that trial balloon has not been shot down."

The Dallas Morning News says McCain is "Kerry's favorite Republican."
