There was never any truth to the Kerry-McCain ticket rumors. They were a fabrication. McCain is a Republican. Now he's campaigning for Bush. This is a disappointing development.

Really? Reports to the contrary seem to have been wide spread.

Sorry you didn't get the call Sherry.

Kerry/Sherry would have been fun.

I found the reports of a Kerry-McCain tickets pretty strange and unlikely. They are from different parties, have different political philosophies, and in my view would have been the Political Odd Couple of the Year. Yes, it was discussed. But what does that mean? The New York Post has really flubbed it by claiming that Kerry picked Gephardt as his running mate. This is a screw-up for sure as his choice is Edwards, not Gephardt.

I have to wonder if the "rumors" about the Kerry/McCain ticket were a ruse to begin with, planted by the Bush Administration, merely so they could craft these negative attack ads assuming it to be true. As far as I've read, there were only rumors of Kerry wanting McCain, and I never read anything where Kerry acknowledged the rumors. The only things I read was McCain saying that he'd never run for VP, only in response to the rumors, not a Kerry request.

How "clever" of the Bush Administration, if that's true. But still...look who's running the "negative campaign" now? Or are Republicans only allowed to be negative? After all, Bush talked down the economy the minute he was elected, then reversed course after the damage had already been done.

No "Bounce"

Edwards Makes Little Difference in Polls

Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) - John Kerry's choice of John Edwards as his running mate was received favorably by the public, polls suggest, but it has made little difference so far in the race with President Bush.

Kerry strategists are trying to lower expectations for a "bounce" in the polls that presidential candidates sometimes get after choosing a running mate or attending a convention. Bush strategists were quick to raise expectations of a double-digit "bounce" for the Kerry-Edwards team by the end of the Democratic National Convention.
