The ‘RAT “Dream Team” is really the “Nightmare Pair.” Kiss America goodbye if they get in in November.

Texas gov. Rick Perry - I don’t know why I haven’t even heard that he is on the short list.

VP choices rarely help, but they can hurt.

That goes for both McCain and the Obamanation.

Do no harm is the only real goal with the choice.

Gov. Perry has quite forcefully denied any interest in the Vice-Presidency. He intends to run for re-election.

Lieberman has declined. I'm not sure who would be best for the ticket. I have heard many names but don't have much info on any of the possibilities. Pawlenty, Crist, Thune. Lots of good people. Who would bring the most to the ticket?

He is not on the short list, because most repubs here in Texas have come to dislike him so very much.

I don’t think Hillary or Obama could beat McCAin alone. Hillary would have the blacks pissed at her if she took the nomination from him and Obama would lose the women and hispanic vote without her.

I concerned they could mount a stiff challenge together.

“He is not on the short list, because most repubs here in Texas have come to dislike him so very much.”

Why?

He seems to be a conservative, governor of a large state, seems to come across well on TV... that’s about all I know about him but at least I don’t know of anything negative.

But if Obama picks Lyndon LaRouche or Mahmoud Achmadinejad as his running mate, he might win in a landslide.

He is in a box. He cannot pick someone smarter or more likeable. He needs someone who makes him look competent, smart, honest, and trustworthy. Toe tapping Senator Larry Craig could make the RINO relic look good.

The best chance of stopping BHO from becoming President is to pull Democrats away, and Lieberman would be the best asset to do that. I hope he will reconsider, he’s right on defense and the war, and by golly, he could actually win this time!

So what is your plan?
All these candidates have good days and bad days. Obama has given many crappy speeches and can not talk without a script in front of him that is why his puppet masters as Rush puts it do not allow the media to talk to him off the record or ask questions
that are not given ahead of time so he is prepared to response .
Do you recall the waffle answer to the question about HAMAS ?
He is idiot when he is not reading from a teleprompter. Are you aware of these facts?

I'll always have a speciel likeing for Newt and Keyes ... but as you say ... McCain needs someone that will make him look good and either one of Newt/Keyes would leave McCain more clueless than what he is now.

I honestly don't know who would be a good VP. ..

Hell, I ain't even accepted McCain as a good pres.

I'm going to go way out on a limb here and say... Tom Selleck.

Wait! I'm serious about this. He is far more conservative than McCain. Strong on 2nd amendment. Pro-military. Pro-life. Smart. Humble. Able to give great speeches off-the-cuff. Everyone knows Tom and he is loved by millions including liberals (except Rosie O'Donuts). He is known around the world and typifies the way we want the world to see Americans. He would be a great VP and he could be ready to become president in 4 years.

Yes, a black woman — but a smart, sharp, conservative black woman with adequate credentials to be President. Yes, the pickings are pretty slim — but there should be a few out there to choose from. Any suggestions?

Oh yeah, Crist is definitely in the closet.
Putting him on the ticket wont give McCain Florida. We are SO not happy with Crist. He’s not Bush Lite. He’s just Lite.

Obama may have started the primary smelling like a rose, but the blush is now off--way off. Along with a Hillary V.P. his ticket would have enough negative baggage to sink a battleship.

Although I'm sure McCain will do his darnedest not to take the only big advantage they would be handing him. Expect him to run to the left of center instead.

Face it, Obama now needs a V.P. with the squeaky clean image he himself had a few months ago. I find it hard to imagine him picking Clinton. While McCain needs to throw conservatives a bone with his V.P. pick. But I won't be holding my breath.

We may have gotten our answer in post #41 from Sunbunny.

Many closeted types have had brief marriages for their bios. Look at McGreevey.

Rick Perry couldn’t get elected as dog catcher after he presided over the nightmare with the FLDS. He took the side of TX CPS in rounding up all those innocent children at gunpoint. He is toast. Kind of like Jeb Bush who presided over the dehydration/starvation death of Terri Schiavo. There are consequences when those in power trample the weak, not to mention the Constitution.

I was absolutely HORRIFIED watching John McCain’s speech tonight. He looked awful and sounded worse. If he doesn’t pick Mitt Romney for VP, we are doomed, I tell ya, doomed!

Also, I watched Hillary Clinton’s speech tonight and I gotta tell ya, she was brilliant. Obama’s speech was so so, an empty shirt.
