Romney for Vice President

    Hell has frozen over. I was a McCain supporter at the beginning of the primary process, then a Huckabee supporter, and then finally a McCain supporter again. My point you ask? I was not a fan of Governor Romney. Mitt’s an accomplished guy, but I thought his sudden change of heart on the social issues was really convenient. He went from moderate northeastern Governor to | Read More »

    And the Democrats accuse us of using scare tactics

    Taking a page right out of what they call the Republican playbook, the DNC has launched this wonderful website to “scare us all straight”. This group paints each possible VP with their own Bush/Cheney brush. The funny thing is, they even have the nerve to bring up links to Abramoff as if their party hasn’t had it’s own issues with fundraising – Norman Hsu, Charlie | Read More »

    Quest for the Democratic VP

    Someone posted here on RS that Obama should ‘run by himself’. While that might be the best solution, the media has actually published a list of qualifications straight from the burning bush. The New York Times describes Obama’s [search] (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/30/us/politics/30veep.html?_r=1&ref=politics&oref=slogin) for a VP as a ‘quest’ involving a small army of researchers looking into past histories. While this generally is a wise tactic, how would | Read More »

    Kudlow interview makes convincing case for Sarah Palin as Vice Presidential candidate.

    I must admit that my head is in a tail spin regarding who McCain should select as vice presidential candidate. Really. I think Romney would be an inherently bad choice given what both what he said about Mike Huckabee during the campaign (and that counts here in fly over country) and McCain.

    Tim Kaine: Not Ready for Prime Time

    Rumor is that Barack Obama will soon announce Tim Kaine as his vice presidential nominee; I tend to agree with Jim Geraghty that Republicans ought to welcome such a selection. If Obama chooses to double-down on lack of experience and foreign policy credentials, it can only improve the contrast with John McCain. But why make that argument myself when one of Kaine’s local Virginia papers | Read More »

Here are the qualities some McCain advisers believe he should seek and find in his running mate:1. Business background2. Military service3. | Read More »

    BREAKING: Novak reports McCain will tab Veep this week

    Bob Novak tells the world that his sources tell him that John McCain will pick his Veep this week. The reasoning? He wants to take some of the press away from Obama’s foreign adventures. Novak will give no names, but he points out that “Mitt Romney has led the speculation recently.” If the campaign wants to steal some of Barry’s thunder, Romney is not the | Read More »
