i also wonder if this isn't something of a sacrifice fly.

it's now looking worse and worse for McCain ... perhaps this puts a 21st century potential GOP star into a national figure for the future?

dunno, just speculatin'.

I do have to go and work today.

I need to make some money, since Obama is going to raise my taxes.


But, later I share my opinions why this was a very good pick by McCain.

Yeah, and Obama was against removing Saddam from power while his Vice Presidential Candidate voted the same way as Castro, against using military force to remove Saddam from Kuwait in 1991.

McCain's foreign policy experience began when Biden was still in High School and more than 15 years before Biden was in the Senate. Its absurd to suggest that Biden has more Foreign Policy experience than McCain. Biden has lived most of his life in the state of Delaware. When McCain entered congress in 1981, the longest place he had ever lived in his life was Hanoi Vietnam.

if we're going to talk about judgment, when it comes to the single most important decision a candidate has to make, tell me, who has made the pick that is better for the United States?
Obama picked a VP candidate who voted against removing Saddam's military from Kuwait in 1991 with military force. Even the French supported military action against Saddam at that time, sending an entire Light Infantry Division to support the US led military intervention to remove Saddam from Kuwait. Probably the most important vote of Biden's career at that time, and he got it wrong. Biden wised up in 2002, but had a very different position from the person he is running with in 2002 on whether or not to remove Saddam from power.


As yourself, which ticket is more representitive of America, the Republican ticket or the Democratic ticket. While she has much less experience than McCain or Biden, she is the only one on either ticket that has executive government experience. When was the last time the country elected a ticket that did not have governor or former governor on the ticket.

Obama picked Biden partly because they thought he was a great attack dog. I hope he goes after Palin in the debate, I'm sure the women of America will love that.

Definitely not the conventional choice for McCain. There is some risk involved, but McCain needs to take some political risk in order to win in this environment.

Biden's son is in the National Guard. Any word on what Palin's son is in?

What is it with this stage thing? And why am I not surprised Diamond brought it up?

It seemed obvious that it was modeled to look like the White House from a distance, which is what everyone was looking at it from at Mile High Stadium.

Face it guys, Johhny Mac outsmarted everyone GOP/Dems/MSM/Interference.Com-the man's shrewd.

I think we all should slap ourselves-if you're humble enough to do so.

McCain was just worried that it wouldn't look like the real Acropolis as he remembers it from his boyhood days.

it is something to think about... is she the obama for the GOP, and this run is perhaps setting her up for a future run at the big seat the same way the Dems set Obama up with his speech in 2004.
