Wikipedia As A Prediction Tool?

It appears that if you want to find out who will be chosen as VP candidates in the future, all you need to do is monitor Wikipedia.
Just hours before McCain declared his veep choice of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, her Wiki page saw a flurry of activity, with editors adding details about her approval rating and husband's employment. Perhaps more tellingly, some of the same users editing her page were almost simultaneously updating McCain's Wiki entry, adding information dealing with accuracy, sources and footnotes to each.

While Wikipedia seems to be an excellent VP prediction tool, it remains a terrible place to dig up dirt on your political opponent, ain't that right Lee...
