Are there any other things I should considered in deciding on which to draw from at this early stage of my retirement?

How long will it be until you are required to make minimum withdrawals from your IRA? Will the minimum withdrawals be more than you need to withdraw, if you weren't forced to? Will those minimum withdrawals put you into a higher tax bracket? Do you want to do some conversions to a Roth IRA now to avoid future minimum required withdrawals that will be more than you need and may bump you up to a higher tax bracket?
