He was Vice President prior to his run in 1960.

A rather dominant face in the GOP at the time, don't you think?

Sure, let's reduce the issue to McCain's sloganeering.

But he finished term. I'm still not following your comparison here...

At least I hear your reasoning - focused on not completing a term.

Other than that aspect, I think it's a pretty fair comparison.

The drilling position is somewhat specific, but tell me her specific plans for the other two.

I was referring to having been a candidate for major, national office, and yet very slim on real goals and plans.

Bingo. And her supporters somehow feel that that makes her a reasonable candidate for President.

Which is why I'll refer back to my original comment: They're as muddled as she is.

Wow, I really shouldn't have to. Her plan for 2012, if that's what you're looking for, has yet to exist.

If you read the thread enough, you would know that I have not committed to her.

It's the same person.

Let's beat the dead horse again: we don't know her plans, nor is that really all that important for now.

That's not substance. That's style.

In a way, I agree.

Which is why, again, I haven't committed to Heath 2.5.

I have to wonder who out of the GOP you would think makes a reasonable candidate for president, though...

Jindal?
Perry?
Thune?

I wonder the same about Noonan and Parker.

As far as I can see, there has been change since he took office. Perhaps you don't like the change, but it's there.

To be completely honest, I don't think I've seen a reasonable Republican candidate for president in a very long time.

Fair enough.

That's not to say that I haven't written her off entirely, but I do anticipate that her resignation will backfire if she should run for president.
