McCain Picks -------







Condi Rice - serves two purposes:O) Race and Gender

I've heard he may pick Huckabee to secure the South and evangelical vote.

Where this may be a smart move, I wonder how well they actually get along...

Also, haven't I read more than once she has zero interest in the position? Maybe if Bush whispers in her ear a bit she could be convinced otherwise.

if this is all that matters?

does it matter that her significant other may be same gender?


race

gender

significant other

aside,



she has proven to be incompetent

at least Colin Powell had the good sense to quit
and stop toeing the company line


Condi is spineless

The absolute best thing for Obama

would be for him to pick Hillary to be on the ticket

with him

him as VP

and Hillary as the Presidential candidate



it would also be the best for the Dems
and the hardest ticket for McCain / Hutchinson? to beat.

to think

that mccain won't
pick

Obama has the power


is he smart enough to know how to use it?

BVS 03-10-2008 02:34 PM

Would anyone take a Clinton/ Obama ticket seriously after the jabs they've made, especially Clinton?

the Clintons realize that this is her only hope as well.

but considering what the Clintons do to the people around them who aren't Clintons, i think Obama might pass, should she, the #2 candidate, be so beneficent as to extend the #2 slot to the present #1.

I know you don't remember the 1960 kennedy / johnson war for the nomination
(i don't either, but I have watched the documentaries)


I do remember the Bush / Reagan battle for the nomination in 1980.

Bush traveled the country calling Reagan's plan for tax cuts and defense spending increases Voodoo Economics * every chance he got. It was more of a slash and burn campaign than Bush / McCain in 2000 even. Well at both the 1960 and 1980 party conventions everyone kissed and made up and went on to victory. Ironically each VP became President. :shrug:




*
In the primary election, Bush represented the centrist wing in the GOP, whereas Reagan represented the conservative wing. He labeled Reagan's supply side-influenced plans for massive tax cuts "voodoo economics." During the election, Reagan once famously described Bush as a "Brooks Brothers Republican."

Irvine511 03-10-2008 02:56 PM

was Bush beating Regan in 1980?
