My favorite conservative Southern Senator.  Smokin cool

http://www.kplctv.com/Global/story.asp?S=1689921&nav=0nqxLJ3t

Louisiana US Senator Mary Landrieu as John Kerry's running mate? It may be on the way.

John Kerry will be in New Orleans Friday, and Mary Landrieu will be at his rally.

The Kerry Campaign is putting in bleachers and sound systems to handle the thousands who will be on hand for the noon time event, free and open to the public.

Kerry has been in Florida all day and will be arriving Friday morning for the rally at Woldenberg Park.

Just about every Louisiana elected official will be there, from Gov. Blanco to Congressman Bill Jefferson, to Senator John Breaux, and yes, Mary Landrieu, flying in from Washington.

We caught up with her in Washington to get her comment on being mentioned as a possible running mate for Kerry: "I would consider it. But it's too premature right now. There are many people being considered, and it's not something you actively seek. It's something that just works because that's what the party and what the country is looking for."

University of New Orleans Political Scientist Dr. Susan Howell says Landrieu would be an exciting choice and would help the Kerry campaign in the south.

I'd love to see how these two fair in a debate. Big grin




Which of the two do you think will win over with the voters?  Smile











Thanks for the links Bruno  Smile

i dont know who she is but surely seems to be a good choice in getting bush out of office, female from the south, if it gets more votes in the south and women, then im all for it!
only question is if she isnt "too french" sounding, since that seems to be a bad thing these days in the u.s., i am not sure if it could also hurt the campaign.

I hear you man.
I can't believe the anti-French propaganda campaign the middle part of my country fell for.  Sad

I am not sure if this would attract the 'bubba' vote in the deep south but will certainly draw a lot of independents and moderates that may have accidentally voted for Dubya in 2000.

She does tend to vote for Alaska Issues such as opening ANWR, so the loss of her vote in congress would hurt.

The VP doesn't have as much power as people think.

Better to keep Mary in the Senate where her vote counts.

Well she is certainly better than Kerry. Maybe they ought to trade places.

But I would say that her centrist stance will guarantee her a simple poster-child duty as VP, without any real influence. Kerry is too much of a liberal and egoist to allow that. She would just be a vote-getter.

L-188:
Actually, Louisiana's new governor is also a Democrat from the same wing of the Democratic Party as Mary Landrieu. Therefore she'll most likely pick another conservative Democrat like Landrieu that will vote the same.
This is Louisiana, not California. Don't worry, Mary Landrieu nor John Kerry will take your guns away.  Smile

Keep in mind, President Kerry will be too busy undoing the damage by Cheney, Bush, Rumsfeld, Ridge, Wolfowitz, A$$croft, Halliburton, Rove and others we don't even know about. Therfore the last thing Kerry would concern himself with is trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens.

Kerry has been in politics long enough to know that gun control is a losing argument in many states.

Sorry but the Assault Weapon ban that with luck will expire this year was on his watch, As was the "Brady bill" which has done nothing it was promised too.

But again, why should I vote to remove somebody from congress such as Mary that tends to side on my issues?

Kind of the same reason Why I will probably not for for Tony Knowles, who I passed at REI today BTW, over Lisa Murkowski in the Senate race.

To vote for Tony would be a vote for Daschle to run this state, and my thoughts about nepotisim just don't overpower that fact.

That joke of a newspaper we have here in San Francisco (Chronicle) ran an article about Diane Feinstein being a possible choice.
They obviously are just trying to sell papers.
The dumbest thing Kerry could possibly do on the campaign is pick Diane Feinstein. Even Walter Mondale was wise enough to pass her up in 1984.
Picking a female VP is risky as it is. Then picking a Jewish one from a state that's going to vote Democrat anyway is just stupid!

L-188:
Daschle is a good man from a conservative state that hasn't gone Democrat since 1964. He has been in the Senate long enough to know that it's not a good idea to preassure Senators from conservative states to go along with ideals important to big city liberals. He will just turn the heat up on Prick San torum, Arlen Sphenkter, Coleman and other GOP Senators representing the wrong states.
The Dems have ousted D'Amato, Roth, Gordon, Grahm (MN) and Abraham.

On the contrary. It will rue the day if it allows this ultra-conservative Administraiton to wreak havoc on this nation another 4 years. You think he's an extremsts now? Wait till he has no more elections to win. The U.S. won't have a friend left in the world, left to this man.

We're still at a point, I fear, where a woman on the ticket will draw away more votes than it will attract. Kerry will make a safe pick, like Richardson, or, I believe, Edwards. I think a Kerry/Edwards ticket is the strongest one to pit against Bush and Cheney. And I think the Dems sense a weakness with Cheney on the ticket.

And L-188, threatening a U.S. Senator like that? Perhaps the FBI would be interested in that. Your arrogance and ignorance grows by the day, I suspect, out of fear that Bush might actually lose.

I think we are "rue-ing" the day that Bush got put into office by that hideous combination of the soporific Al Gore, Ralph Nader, Florida Republican thugs, and Rehnquist and his band of judicial activists.

Four years of rueing.

No more rueing, I say.

As far as the collective post-Kerry win "rueing" of our Bush loving Swiss friend is concerned, all I can say is have some more muesli with your morning coffee and ... relax. At least you will ensure that HRC won't be Prez in 2008.
