Gearan in NY Times

President Mark Gearan was quoted on the Feb. 14 New York Times article “So Begins the Vice-Presidential Mating Dance.” The article addressed the desire for the vice-president spot on the election ticket, and whether the list for potential candidates should be secret. Gearan said, “It can be helpful to some people to be on the mentioned list, and go through the speculation. But a lot of times, in home states, it may not be. You're mentioned, you look like you have Potomac fever and then you don't get picked. This period is very critical, to allow for the careful research and complete look at all the dimensions someone might bring to a ticket.”
