Obama's VP: Daschle

I had to make a prediction, so there it is now.
We know Obama likes Daschle, we know Daschle was vetted, and we know he has a speaker slot on Wed. We even know he's floated as a potential CoS in the WH. It makes sense too, of the whole VP process we've been watching unfold for Obama.
What do you think of an Obama/Daschle ticket?
What Daschle has said this week about the VP slot:
Daschle said, Its clear that there are certain candidates who would improve the chances of the campaign in certain states. But, he added, that hes advised Obama to make his decision primarily on two factors. Pick somebody first that can take your job if youre not here, Daschle said. And, second, somebody for whom you have good personal chemistry because youre going to work together for the next eight years so you might as well like it.
Update [2008-8-19 23:55:14 by Jerome Armstrong]: I missed this at the end of last week, but Markos also is picking Daschle. He points back to a Trapper John prediction of it on July 30th. Now, Trapper John couldn't have been more wrong, given the last three weeks of McCain gains, in his summation of where Obama's candidacy stands against McCain, but his logic for why Daschle is still sound.
