St. Louis Congressman Richard Gephardt has had a private chat with presumptive Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry. Gephardt met with Kerry late Wednesday afternoon. It’s unclear how long the two talked. Kerry broke off from the campaign trail to be back in Washington as the same time as two other possible running mates were in D.C.: Retired General Wesley Clark and Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack. Gephardt reportedly has the back of labor, with union officials urging Kerry to put Gephardt on the 2000 ticket.
