McCain Risks Alienating Conservative Base With VP Choice
Conservatives Warn of Backlash if McCain Picks a Pro-Abortion-Rights VP

Excerpt:

With Sen. John McCain poised to announce his vice presidential selection Friday at noon in Ohio, a revolt is brewing among anti-abortion activists in his conservative base that could include a walkout at the Republican National Convention next week and a huge battle on the floor — especially if he selects former-Democrat-turned-Independent Joe Lieberman.

On another thread, there's a link to some guy who has an inside source at the RNC...it's supposed to be a woman. I am absolutely sick over this now because I think the woman will be Meg Whitman. I'm sure she's a nice lady and I love eBay but as VP—a heartbeat away from the presidency when we are at war???

I SO hope not! Disaster. There’s no doubt she’s an excellent executive, but she’s also apparently worth $1.4 billion, too ... imagine how that will play.

She’s worth 1.4 billion and earned every penny of it. Where’s the problem?

The problem is how the 8 houses, Cindy’s millions and Whitman’s billions will be twisted and skewered by the Rat machine.

I thought they already kicked him out of the party. What is this, the freakin' Mafia?

He left on his own.

Maybe when Meg becomes President, she can put the country up for auction to the highest bidder on eBay.
