VP Poll is running a VP poll (look for it right under Today’s Funnies, quarter way down mid-page). Click Here (to get there) Romney in lead at 40% and Palin in second… Palin for VP blogspot

    McCain should make an unconventional pick

    I’ve felt since the FL Primary that McCain is going to be the next President. Obama and Hillary the only two real Dem contenders at that point were just too inexperienced. Right now he is basically tied when he should be several points behind. As we get closer to the election and Americans become more familiar with Obama, particularly his complete lack of executive, business, | Read More »

    If not Hillary, then why not Richardson?

    Presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Barack Obama has chosen, and his selection of Sen. Joe Biden for the ticket’s second spot has not helped his faltering campaign:

    Four VP Gambits

    1) THE FEMALE GAMBIT — Sarah Palin. Upside: Conservatives will love her. Women will vote for her (not all of them, but some of them just to break the “glass ceiling”). Good campaigner, means Biden will have to be careful in his debate attacks to not be seen bullying and we all know how careful Biden is. Downside: Trooper gate, does she fit McCain’s personality | Read More »

    Lets Discuss Possible Woman VP Candidates

    Lets have a serious discussion on what woman McCain could possibly nominate for VP slot. Please give your pros/cons to them. Gov Palin- many on here seem to have fallen in love with her but she comes from Alaska a lock for GOP and is only in her 1st term of Governor. Has she really been tried and tested? Does her librarian image hurt her? | Read More »

    Top Five VP Considerations

    I would suggest Colin Powell, Michael Steele, Elizabeth Dole, Charlie Crist, Mitt Romney? Reasons for or Against?!



    If John McCain chooses a Latino running mate, it would ensure a majority of Latinos voting for the G.O.P. for decades to come. Latinos are the swing vote in this election. Their political power will only increase in future elections. Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp, Bill Bennett, John McCain and many other conservative leaders understood this years ago. John McCain’s courageous support for the recent immigration | Read More »

    In the Interest of Balance

    With all the exultation in Red State over Biden, I figured jptrenn’s diary entry makes a few points. Namely, that Biden’s background is ‘normal’ compared to some of the recent players for the presidency in D.C. Land and McCain should be careful who to pick for his ticket.

    Biden, check. Palin, checkmate.

    I’ve already shown how Sarah Palin would be a smart pick by John McCain to be his running mate. In light of recent events, she’s looking like a smarter selection .The announcement made early this morning by the Obama camp that Delaware Senator Joe Biden is Obama’s choice to share the Democrat presidential ticket with him sets the stage for McCain to name his own | Read More »

    The Case for Chris Cox as McCain’s VP

    What does Christopher Cox bring to the table in terms of executive experience and the economy? A LOT!!What does Christopher Cox bring to the table in terms of legislative experience and the economy? A LOT!!Christopher Cox had a very important role in President Reagan’s White House.What does Chris Cox bring to the table in terms of private sector business experience and education? A LOT!!

    As expected, VP choice doesn’t matter

    Pretty much no one cares that Biden is the VP nominee for Obama. Of those who do, 13% say it makes them “more likely” to vote for Obama and 10% say it makes them “less likely.” Without seeing the internal numbers, my guess is those 13% are mostly already Obama supporting Democrats who think Biden will help and the 10% are McCain supporting Republicans who | Read More »

    VP Kay Bailey Hutchinson?

    Dick Morris just suggested it on H&C. It seems tantalizing but I don’t really know all that much about her, other than I love her accent. Thoughts?

    Tactical Error

    I thought releasing the VP pick via text msg was a great idea and of course tantalizing the media with the pick was also a good idea. But not releasing the pick before office workers left (or are leaving) for the day on the east coast was a tactical mistake. It would have been a great time to generate conversation at the office and at | Read More »

    Cyber Tea Leaves Pointing to Chet Edwards???

    OK – I know that this is going to show that I’m very nerdy and bored while I’m at home and my little girl is taking her nap on my day off. I have been typing in a few URL’s and noticed something: When I type these in – something comes up – either the site is parked by or there is news | Read More »

    Last Veep Thoughts

    Obama can’t pick Biden because he looks like a crook, and at the same time looks like he should be on the top of the ticket instead of Obama. He can’t pick Sebelius, because any woman except Hillary would send Democrat women into a frenzy, plus she gave a response to the state of the Union that could have been given by a skeleton robot. | Read More »
