i think he would, and it's why i can't consider myself an Edwards fan.

I don't think any of the 3 (Hillary, Obama, Edwards) would be on the same ticket.

Hillary would choose a blue-dog? Democratic Governor or Senator. Could very well be some one out of office. Are there any good prospects from Virginia?

Obama would need some gravitas to balance his ticket. Much like Edwards would,
in the foreign policy / defence department area.

^ I'm sure Mark Warner of VA is a top-tier VP candidate.

A Clinton/Obama ticket (or vice versa) would be pretty electrifying.

On the GOP side

Giuliani or Romney could do well to add Condi Rice as their VP. She seems to be trying to rehabilitate her image with calling for the closing of GITMO and stepping up efforts in the Mid-East.

McCain would choose someone that would appeal to the so-called "values voters".

I think it would be more "electrocuting"

as in dead.

perceived as way too left.

I realize this may have stong appeal to you.

and what might be my "dream ticket" may not translate that well in compiling those swing states to get that magic 271 electoral votes.

After eight years of George Bush, that might be what the doctor ordered.

[q]Giuliani stands by support of publicly-funded abortions

TALLAHASSEE, Florida (CNN) -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told CNN Wednesday he supports public funding for some abortions, a position he advocated as mayor and one that will likely put the GOP presidential candidate at odds with social conservatives in his party.

"Ultimately, it's a constitutional right, and therefore if it's a constitutional right, ultimately, even if you do it on a state by state basis, you have to make sure people are protected," Giuliani said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash in Florida's capital city.

A video clip of the then-mayoral candidate issuing a similar declaration in 1989 in a speech to the "Women's Coalition" appeared recently on the Internet.

"There must be public funding for abortions for poor women," Giuliani says in the speech that is posted on the video sharing site YouTube. "We cannot deny any woman the right to make her own decisions about abortion."

When asked directly Wednesday if he still supported the use of public funding for abortions, Giuliani said "Yes."

"If it would deprive someone of a constitutional right," he explained, "If that's the status of the law, yes."

But the presidential candidate reiterated his personal opposition to the practice.

"I'm in the same position now that I was 12 years ago when I ran for mayor -- which is, personally opposed to abortion, don't like it, hate it, would advise that woman to have an adoption rather than abortion, hope to find the money for it," he said. "But it is your choice, an individual right. You get to make that choice, and I don't think society should be putting you in jail."

And the Giuliani campaign noted later in the day that the former mayor would not seek to make any changes to current law, which restricts federal funding to cases of rape, incest and the life of the mother.

Giuliani also vowed to appoint conservative judges to the bench, though denied such a promise was a "wink and a nod" to conservatives in support of overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision on abortion.

^ Hehehe... that's a great clip.

I don't support Hillary because she's a woman, but I admit that there's a seductive pull to the prospect of being a member of the generation that elected the first female President.

Isn't that what you've been telling us over and over and over again? That there was no point in even having an election? Did we all dream that up?
The clear shift in the public mood about the war has obviously changed McCain's chances. If not for that, McCain would have an easy time in the national election. He should win the nomination though, but it will be up to events in Iraq over the next 18 months which will determine who wins the national election.

Who's delusional? Those that advocate immediately withdrawing all US combat forces from the area of greatest Al Quada activity on the planet, or those that want to increase the number US combat forces in that area?

well, you, firstly, but as Dread has pointed out, it's gone from delusional to downright offensive to the men and women in uniform. and, please, stop blaming DEMOCRATS when it's REPUBLICANS who've botched this war from the very beginning, and it's REPUBLICANS who are in favor of pulling out as well as THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

but, also, a doddering old fool with no money who thinks a casual stroll in Indianapolis warrents 100 American soldiers, with three Blackhawk helicopters, and two Apache gunships overhead as well as a bulletproof vest.

As long as Republicans insist on dragging out this war, activists are going to continue to put them out of work:

Tell me the logic in pulling out all US combat forces from the area of greatest Al Quada activity and deploying them to area's that are devoid of Al Quada activity.

In the long run, developing a non-hostile and stable government in Iraq is a higher priority than the same task under way in Afghanistan because of Iraq's location, resources, current development and demographics vs. that of Afghanistan.

What are the potential consequences of the rapid withdrawal the Democrats are proposing? Who will replace the vital task being performed by coalition combat troops on a daily basis in Iraq? How does giving Al Quada a virtual safe haven in Al Anbar province through the withdrawal of US combat Forces from that province improve the coalitions ability to fight Al Quada and prevent current Al Quada terrorist activity in Iraq from spreading outside Iraq?
