and on a more morbid and openly and admittedly paranoid note,

i wonder when we're going to start finding the bodies of many of Crist's former tricks and boyfriends after having "committed suicide."

it happens, lots, in FL.

he is not a "Dick Cheney"

and is at the top of the list of reasonable minded Governors in the GOP group.

If he gets the nod.

The GOP ticket, will be, I think by your appraisal, the best of a their lot?

How so? In my opinion, Crist is one of the last people McCain should consider.

My top choice is Romney. He would be good, as would Palin, Hutchison, Pawlenty, and maybe Jindal. I don't think McCain needs Crist. He'll win Florida and most (if not all) of the south no matter what. Crist isn't that exciting, and McCain desperately needs to bring an exciting person onto the ticket. I don't see how a ticket with two boring gray-haired guys would beat Obama.

Among conservatives he is. As we saw in the primary, he can bring in huge crowds and huge amounts of money, and will make conservatives a lot more excited about the ticket.

yes.

still, it's going to be a fall wedding. plenty of time to cancel should Crist not be asked.

Didn't you tell me that one reason Crist would not be selected was because he was gay?

And he still managed to lose, with all of that included, to the guy who had much less money.

Maybe he's exciting to you, but he was unsuccessful. Once Giuliani dropped out, he was the favorite. McCain kind of came out of nowhere to win it. I think Romney massively underachieved.

McCain is still a better candidate for President, the right choice was made.

Just because you didn't win the nomination doesn't make you unsuccessful. Many nominees have picked primary opponents as running mates. Romney would have won if only conservatives voted in the primary, but the open primary resulted in McCain winning. And yes, Romney certainly would bring in money and excitement to the ticket, and also gain frontrunner status for the nomination in 2012.

I don't disagree that McCain was the most electable of the bunch, but Romney is far and away his best VP selection, IMO.

he is gay. this reconfirms that fact.

she's a beard.

happens all the time.

he hasn't been selected, and i wonder if the Republicans will take such a risk despite his "marriage."

I think it will depend on how strong they feel they are going to be in Florida this year.
