Al Kamen ’67, who writes the "In the Loop" column for the Washington Post, asks for readers' guesses on who Barack Obama's running mate will be. (Kamen says the Democratic primary race is as good as finished, and the nomination will go to Obama, J.D. ’91.) Kamen is running a contest and asking readers to e-mail in their predictions.

His column in today's Post also comments on the rhetoric of former attorney general Alberto Gonzales, J.D. ’82. During a speech at Washington University in St. Louis Tuesday, Gonzales apparently likened the George W. Bush administration to the presidency of Abraham Lincoln.
