Could it be that McCain is campaigning with Ridge because Ridge is Pennsylvanian?

Or is that little fact too much to contemplate.

Sick of the media.

McCain said he would announce when Obama did. Obama just sent out txt messages to his campaign and supporters saying he was going to anounce and instructionson where to get the info.

The left is doing anything and everything they can to pick our Veep nominee, as they did our POTUS nominee.

The question is, will we fall in line with it, like we did with McManiac?

Ridge is my prediction for McCain’s VP. It has been since Ridge was campaigning for him in Delaware during the primaries. Yes, Delaware.

You have advice on how we can get out of the line? I’m all ears.

Let’s hope you’re wrong. Mr. Boring meets Mr. Boring. Ridge may be okay in some areas, but he’s already displayed his stunningly dull and uncompelling (not to mention un-leaderly) personality when he was in Homeland Security.

If Ridge can carry Pennsylvania, I would support him.

That is the only consideration. Would like to see how he polls there.

He will hem and haw about abortion . . so no need to worry about that.

Though I suppose it could be worse. It could be Tommy Thompson. LOL.

Ridge is a good choice, he’d still be PA governor if he hadn’t been tapped by Bush. He’s certainly a far better choice than any of the also rans.

I didn’t think Fauxbama had a chance in PA anyway, but with Ridge as VP, I’d say PA is definately going to be McCain’s.

Tommy Thompson would deliver WI, no doubt. Ridge would guarantee PA.

Not sure what your problem is with either of these? They are both far better selections than any of the Also Rans or Carly.

Since we liberated Iraq, maybe Baghdad won’t be a bad place to live?

I haven't seen the latest statistics but it's probably safer than the Democrat-run enclaves of Philadelphia, Detroit, or Washington DC.

Ridge is in favor of murdering babies.

Just another excuse NOT to vote for Juanito if he picks the butcher.

We could try coalescing around one or two CONSERVATIVE Veep possibilities, and flooding McManiac’s campaign with our demands. LOL

Exactly when did American voters abdicate their right to pick candidates and leaders to the press?

If McCain selects Ridge, it will be about as exciting as when Dole picked Kemp.

Ok, if we agree on some candidates, I’ll help rally.

I don’t think Ridge will be the VP pick.

McCain needs someone much more conservative.

She is a good woman. But I would not vote for a woman to be President. That is factored in for V.P.
