Sen McCain's Vice President

Thu Mar 13, 2008 7:42 pm

http://news.aol.com/elections/story/...ential-search/20080312163909990001

The search is on ladies and gents . . .

Who should it be?

The link provided gives four choices . . . Romney, Guiliani, Thompson and Huckabee . . .

I choose:

None of the above.

I'd really like to see Evan Bayh, but of course - he's a democrat, and that isn't going to happen. So - that said, where does Sen McCain go now? Gotta be able to win over the far right religious screwballs whilst keeping his current center-leaning right wing position on many things including ANWR and Immigration.

Ideas?

Shame Lieberman put himself out of the VP running. That would have been an interesting and, I think, somewhat decent ticket.

From the list, I would say Romney. I wanted him over McCain and am still somewhat surprised he had to drop out so early in the primaries.

He's #1 in the AOL poll I posted as well.

Sure fire thing: Alaska's Governor is out . . . she's preggers and doesn't want the job anyway.

I'm thinking someone like Huckabee - not Huck but like him . . . can relate to religious right, but hasn't lost all his sense of reality. I know that's really an oxymoron . . . but.

I like Bayh a lot too. I think he would be very good for Obama.

The choices in the poll seem to be the obvious ones. Romney would have the best shot out of those 4, but he aint McCain dont get along at all apparantly.

Other names thrown out a lot include Pawlenty and Sanford. He could go with one of his close friends, like a Lindsay Graham.

This guy's name has been tossed around in some circles:


After all, Georgia was one of the few states to maintain (and in the case of Georgia, strengthened) Republican control in the mid-term elections. Governor Purdue is a former Democrat (He was a typical conservative Southern Democrat like Sam Nunn, Richard B. Russell, Herman Talmadge, and Zell Miller.) who switched parties due to having no chance of any advance in the state Democratic Party due to the stronghold folks like Miller and Roy Barnes had on the party. Georgia prior to 2004 was very much a Democratic stronghold despite the Republicans gaining during the 1980s and 1990s, and Purdue's victory in 2004 started a tidal wave of state legislators switching parties.

I bet he waits to see who the Dems nom before he decides. If it's Obama, the VP will have to be a southerner to keep those southern states from being in play as has been suggested. If it is Hillary, McCain could pick pretty much anyone he wanted.

I agreed with Superfly only because it would be a good choice for how the country is run. Now, if we want to talk about electability and helping the party in the general election, I reserve the right to fudge on my choice.

Quoting D L X (Reply 7):

Do you really think so? That might be right, but I wouldn't be surprised if he looks at it as giving the appearance of "having his house in order" and picking up early support if his choice is a popular one.

I quite disagree . . .

Quoting Superfly (Reply 9):

I hope so, but I'm not counting any chickens yet . . .

Now - I disagree with your first statement because, as it relates to the second, if McCain chooses poorly then Sen Obama will have a better shot at beating him. (note how I discount Sen Clinton completely). It's going to be about electability first and foremost, and then everything else.

So if Sen McCain chooses poorly, he stands a decent shot at losing the big chair . . .

I like Fred Thompson too . . . he's got hands like catchers mits - first time I ever shook hands with him I couldn't see my wrist  silly  - but is he electable??? That's the question.

So, yes Larry - it does matter my friend.

ANCFlyer:
A Clinton - McCain match up would almost be a repeat of the Dukakis - Bush match up in 1988. The only difference is that Hillary Clinton will never have a lead over McCain at any point in 2008 unlike Dukakis's 18 point lead after the convention.
An Obama - McCain match up would be closer but McCain would still win.
Unless McCain does something stupid like pick a controversial polarizing figure as VP (which he wont), he will easily get the keys to the White House.

Fred Thompson is one of the least offensive Republicans out there. At least him and McCain will occasionally have a drink and accept evolution as fact. Fred Thompson is not a Bible thumper but knows how to talk to them and play them like a fiddle.
Both McCain and Thompson would sell them out in a heartbeat if it's politically advantageous to them.

The Democratic primary/nomination process is starting to remind me of a hard-fought slug-fest hockey or basketball playoff series...two teams beat each other up so much that after one of them wins that series they get blown out in the next one. Not that McCain will blow out either Clinton or Obama, but the more time passes, the more the Democrats fracture, the better the odds for McCain.

He voted to increase income taxes and reduce sales taxes in Louisiana.

Supports intelligent design - that won't win him any Southern Baptist favors.

And he finally beat Governor  hissyfit  in a Gubernatorial Race.

Jindal just left Congress to become our governor. Also, he's just 36 years old. Give him eight years in LA to get our issues straightened out...which he's already started doing with some major anti-corruption legislation recently passed...then we'll put him back on the national stage.

Maybe, but she would be a clever choice in many respects: She's about as black as Obama (stealing votes from "I vote black" folks - if there are any), she's about as female as Clinton (stealing votes from ... well, you got it), she's more conservative, which may help convince dyed-in-the-wool conservatives to get over it and vote for McCain.
And of course she's experienced and highly intelligent.

Quoting NoUFO (Reply 43):

Points taken,

Counterpoint: She's been a Bush mouthpiece for nearly eight years, echoing everything he's said, and accomplished literally nothing as SecState, nothing. She's part of the 'established' administration, one that many, many people - on both sides of the aisle - want to be rid of.

It would be a very bad call.

Hm, I see. I wasn't aware her reputation wasn't that great at all and thought her loyalty (she's the last dinosaur in Bush's cabinet after all) would make her an even better call.

What obvious hatred?

Romney made it clear several times now that he disagrees with McCain on certain issues but overall, he supports him.

Come on, did you see the body language when he made his endorsement announcement? The fact Romney endorses McCain was done professionally. The two are not buddies. They don't have a good relationship and thus would not be a good ticket.

She is 53 years old, never married and never photographed in public with any sort of significant other

I remember reading something about her and a canadian minister couple of years back.

What is it about her sexuality that would be an issue? Is she a lesbian?

She is 53 years old, never married and never photographed in public with any sort of significant other. I don't know what she is, but she would definately have to answer some uncomfortable questions if she were to become a candidate for political office.

What is she? Janet Reno's black sister that the family doesn't talk about?

As far as McCain....He needs

A:Somebody that will pull conservatives into the mix.
B:Probably somebody that will pull in the northeast voters
C:Somebody who isn't linked at all to the current admin.

I hate to say it but right now Mitt seems the best fit for those requirements.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Mitty will push independents and moderate dems like myself away.
