Skip to comments.How McCain Can Beat Obama
Posted on 06/04/2008 2:34:10 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
There is a very straightforward way for John McCain to ensure a success against Obama this fall (beyond all the valid points regarding Obamas inexperience, his huge mistake on the success in Iraq, his questionable associations, his liberal record). Hillarys supporters want to go somewhere other than Obama. If McCain selects a stalwart, conservative women VP this election is over before it begins. Obama cant lose the 50% of Hillary voters who garnered her the most votes for any presidential candidate in the primaries. And if McCain selects a woman VP, I am fairly certain many of those Hillary supporters will cross over.
What is important about this is the selection needs to be made on merit and be a conservative to help bring in the conservative base. There must be plenty of excellent options out in America. Please feel free to propose your ideas for a woman VP candidate for John McCain in the comments section below!
Brilliant........implement at will.
Of course one has to consider the alternative. We're screwed.
This is a shame because though I detest and distrust Hillary (and distrust McCain and am scared of the totalitarian utopia Obama envisions), my own impression is that she's the smartest of the three candidates running.
Hillary will want to be VP
Easy - McCainiac can choose the Hillabeast as his VP. Might as well. The GOP seems to embrace liberals into their inner sanctum anyway.
Condie Rice as McLaims VP.
Sarah Palin of Alaska except for the fact that her own state will hate to lose her.
If HoBama chooses Chillary...he better hire a ‘royal taster’ at the White House!!! LOL!
Politically, it's smart for McQueeg to nominate a conservative woman as VP. The field, though, is limited to the point of non-availability. Condi -- not particularly conservative, she -- is far too smart to want the office. Sarah Palin would be nearly ideal, but has a newborn with Down's syndrome; she won't take the offer. Kay Hutchinson? Gagmewithashovel.
However, as noted, it is smart for McQueeg to find a conservative woman. Therefore, slack-jawed dummy that he is, he won't do this and will pick some Rockefeller Republican.
This election would be an absolute cakewalk for the 'Pubbies -- Osamabama is the most beatable major party candidate in decades, perhaps forever -- but for the ineffable stupidity of the candidate and his 'wing' of the party. They are eminently capable of, and well on the road to, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Hmmm, they'd both better.
It would be our luck and not surprising if McCain selected someone like Olympia Snowe.
Let Obama take Condi and get the nonsense over with in one move (grin).
I don’t think this would work at all. The women who want to vote for Hillary because she is a woman would only vote for McCain if he picks a pro-choice woman. These “womyn” hate pro-life women more than they hate most men. I don’t think that McCain would pick a pro-choice woman knowing the response from the pro-life conservatives in the Republican Party.
That's what I have been assuming he will do. I KNOW it is the only thing he would be comfortable doing-- choosing a RINO or even a dem.
Ummmmmm . . . . . . . . shine a light on all his negatives??!
Just a thought!
Nope, some of them will stay home or vote for McCain out of pique but there won't be many Clinton-females voting specifically for a conservative female veep.
Dick Morris answered the same question on John Gibson’s radio show. He told John Gibson that McCain should say, “I hate smoking, too!”
McCain-Hillary ticket for President?
It would be worth it just to burst the bubble of the Obamessiah and his mindless robots.
He wouldn’t stand a chance!
Obama is FAR more dangerous to America than McCain or Hillary.
He — and his nefarious “friends” — must be stopped at ANY cost.
Did he mention whether he thought sucking prostitutes’ toes would help or hinder Obama’s chances? :-)
MCCAIN===THE ‘MAN’ WHO WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT
WHY DON’T YOU RUN ON WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT AND NOT
DRILLING FOR OIL, SECURING THE NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN BORDERS,
VICTORY IN ASIA, MAKING ENGLISH THE NATIONAL LANGUAGE AND KEEPING
THE TAXES LOW.
IS THAT TO BIG OF A JOB FOR THE MAN WHO WANTS TO LEAD THE
BEST NATION IN THE WORLD???
There is always one article or the other with a sure-fired plan for McCain to win. I am not sure how a woman or a minority or both helps him against Obama.
It is the same old posturing and maneuvering we all saw during the primaries. Republicans over-thinking things and ultimately outsmarting themselves. It is my hope that McCain will pick someone who still gives a damn about America and that has the knowledge to know what needs done and the guts to do it.
I really think (and I know it would be a nightmare but better than the alternative) if McCain did pick Hillary he would get TONS of her voters, they hate Obama and have been threatening to vote McCain—THAT would help them along nig time.
Sorry didn’t mean nig time....I meant BIG time, I must have been thinking about the scary thought of Obama as POTUS and made a typo...lol
