Halperin gives you the run-down of election insight in some sort of dingbat aphorisms …

-Obama’s running mate: will seem safe, but will be risky.

-McCain’s running mate: will seem risky, but will be safe.

-Obama’s pick timing: sooner than you think.

-McCain’s pick timing: later than you think.

It gets worse from there. Sort of like The Note, only without the substance …
