John McCain is a Maverick who tells it like it is.

I'd like to see McCain pick Romney, but I predict Pawlenty.
I'd like to see Obama pick Kaine, but I predict Biden.

I really want Obama to pick Biden.

Biden is by far the best candidate.

Nobody knows who Kaine is, and Bayh is too much a political decision, just to get votes in Indiana/Ohio.

Obama and veep choice to campaign on Saturday

Aug 19, 9:43 PM (ET)

By CHRISTOPHER WILLS and BETH FOUHY

www.Newsmax.com

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Barack Obama's newly minted running mate will join the Democratic hopeful onstage Saturday at a rally in this capital city where Obama launched his White House bid, a campaign official said.

A senior Obama adviser told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday that Obama and his veep choice will appear in front of the former state Capitol where Abraham Lincoln once served. The last time Obama appeared there, he announced he was running for president.

The disclosure narrowed the window Obama has to reveal his running mate. The list of possibilities is widely believed to be down to Delaware Sen. Joe Biden, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh and Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who planned to campaign with Obama Thursday in his home state.

Obama strategist Anita Dunn wouldn't respond directly when asked if the Springfield event would be Obama's first appearance with his choice, but she suggested the two wouldn't necessarily be related. The campaign has said it will announce the choice on an episode of South Park, where Obama will appear at a rally playing himself sending a cell phone text message to supporters.

"We could pick up the V.P. any time an episode of South Park airs." Dunn said in an interview.

Well, he also was guilty of international plagiarism, which by my book makes him a step up on Obama, who plagiarized from the Massachusetts governor's race two years ago.



Two peas in a pod.

No, Biden only committed a political mistake in the 1980s and paid the price.

They are not "two peas in a pod".

I have been thinking this

and Nader has now said it

so I will post it.

Nader predicts Obama to pick Clinton
By: John F. Harris

August 19, 2008 09:30 PM EST

Count Ralph Nader as unimpressed by the crop of supposed finalists to be Barack Obama’s running mate.

“I don’t think he’s that dumb,” said Nader, commenting on widespread speculation that Obama’s choices are down to Sens. Joe Biden, Evan Bayh, or Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine.

The smart pick, according to Nader, is Hillary Rodham Clinton. Nader phoned into Politico Tuesday afternoon to offer his prediction that a surprise nod to Clinton is actually what Obama has in store—never mind the talk of mistrust between the Clintons and Obama.

“He just has to swallow hard and do what JFK did” in picking rival Lyndon Johnson in 1960, said the liberal activist and maverick presidential candidate.


It would be the smartest thing he could do.

It would give him an instant jump of 10 - 15 points.


Also, he could do this the same way Cheney choose himself in 2000.


Obama could say after interviewing everyone else, there were many fine candidates.

But Hillary Clinton has lived though eight years with one of our best Presidents ever and has been an outstanding Senator for 8 years. Plus, she has proven to be a campaigner that can reach the American people because she understands them. I could do no better as President than to have her available to assist me in bringing the change the American people want and deserve.


Will he see the wisdom in having the strongest ticket for November?

Poll shows McCain takes 5-point lead over Obama
Wed Aug 20, 2008 7:44am EDT

By John Whitesides, Political Correspondent

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a sharp turnaround, Republican John McCain has opened a 5-point lead on Democrat Barack Obama in the U.S. presidential race and is seen as a stronger manager of the economy, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

McCain leads Obama among likely U.S. voters by 46 percent to 41 percent, wiping out Obama's solid 7-point advantage in July and taking his first lead in the monthly Reuters/Zogby poll.

The reversal follows a month of attacks by McCain, who has questioned Obama's experience, criticized his opposition to most new offshore oil drilling and mocked his overseas trip.

The poll was taken Thursday through Saturday as Obama wrapped up a weeklong vacation in Hawaii that ceded the political spotlight to McCain, who seized on Russia's invasion of Georgia to emphasize his foreign policy views.

"There is no doubt the campaign to discredit Obama is paying off for McCain right now," pollster John Zogby said. "This is a significant ebb for Obama."

McCain now has a 9-point edge, 49 percent to 40 percent, over Obama on the critical question of who would be the best manager of the economy -- an issue nearly half of voters said was their top concern in the November 4 presidential election.

He better do it quick (time to bring the adults in)

before these pros that are advising him
with their viral, techie, animation style of campaigning get Obama voted off the stage, ala Sanjaya
