'tis the season for brackets. And the PoJu loves a gimmick. So do we, in fact. Since we're wildly speculating this week about possible running mates for the prez candidates, you can find Ken Rudin's Perspicacious Picks for Vice President — tourney style, and on the GOP side, if you click on the image to the left. Granted, none of these possibles will be meeting on the court (or the bowling alley, despite April Fools Day fun), but it sure is fun to pick 'em.

Political Junkie Rudin (PoJuRu) also stopped by with more trivia questions (my, is he well-rested!) — too many, in fact, to include in the mere 38 minutes we give him each week. So if you want to win kudos from Rudin (Krudins), riddle me this:

Context: Sen. Joe Lieberman is rumored as a possible VP choice for McCain.

Question:Who was the last person to run for Veep with two different men at the top of the ticket?

Answer correctly, and you've got bragging rights for at least a week. Or until the real tourney overtakes political buzz.
