Edward Witten for VP?

After years of work on a candidate theory of quantum gravity, there's word that the father of M-theory may well be Obama's future VP candidate. After all, it is a well-known fact that Witten was actively involved in former democratic presidential candidate George McGovern's campaign. Moreover, he has published articles in The New Republic and The Nation and has donated more than $50,000 in democratic campaign contributions from 2000-2008. Witten's desire for change clearly rivals that of any other VP hopeful. Not to mention, he's pretty darned smart. So, look out Chet Edwards and Joe Biden, your VP hopes are hanging by a string. ;)
