Is There Hope for Clark to be Obama's Veep?

CQ politics notes an interesting connection between the Wednesday night theme of the Democratic convention, Wes Clark's PAC, and the featured speaker on Wednesday night:
Gen. Wes Clark's slogan -- "Securing America's Future" -- is the theme for the night Barack Obama's running mate is scheduled to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
Clark's political action committee is called WESPAC -- Securing America's Future.
It is probably just a coincidence of bland messaging, but it is still encouraging. Picking Clark would be a wonderful way to stick it to McCain, and also to the punditry that went along with the Republican hyperventilation over Clark's non-incendiary comments. It would be a great step away from Democrats who can't message well, either.

Picking Clark would be a sign that Obama really is serious about shaking things up in D.C., not only in terms of policy but also in terms of media. Running directly counter to a recent media hissy-fit would be head and shoulders above what I have come to expect from Democrats.
