Veepstakes: The next Cheney?

The DNC has launched a Web site called "The Next Cheney," which provides some Dem research on some of McCain's top VP possibilities.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch looks at the wealth of both Tim Kaine and Eric Cantor.

REPUBLICANS: Sen. John Thune was on hand with McCain Monday at the Buffalo Chip Campground near Sturgis, S.D., home of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Thune said he warned McCain a politician might not get a friendly welcome from the biker contingent. 
 
DEMOCRATS: Ready for the silly veepstakes knee-jerk of the day? Speculation went aflutter after Sen. Evan Bayh's staff softball team cancelled a game tomorrow, citing "too many people out of town." 
 
IndyStar breaks down the numbers in advance of the upcoming Obama-Bayh visit: "Obama opened his 18th campaign office in Indiana on Monday and expects to open 25 to 30. McCain has yet to open an office here. And Obama is running his third campaign commercial here since the primary; McCain has not bought Indiana TV time." 
 
A poll being released today by Lifetime television finds that 55% of women voters think Obama's choice of a female running mate will make no difference to them; 62% said that of McCain. The full poll, which hopes to explain why Sen. Hillary Clinton lost the primary, will be released at 1 pm. 
 
Meanwhile, Clinton will revive her PAC to help congressional candidates. She will also campaign for Obama in Nevada Friday and in Miami on Aug. 21. Obama is not scheduled to appear with her, but there's "a chance" he could show up in Nevada.
