OK you're batting zero for predictions on vice president for both parties, not to mention JoCo DA. Whaddya think of the choice?

And let me hasten to add I wasn't any more accurate on my veep predictions than you were.

I only made a prediction on the Dem side for VP, but it wasn’t a definitive one (that being the KS Governor). The choice of Biden was astonishingly stupid. Had he picked Gilligan-Sebelius, it would’ve taken the luster off McCain’s pick (and made McCain look desperate — indeed, KGS might’ve even curtailed Palin being picked). For the GOP side, I was hoping McCain would go for one of our top three most experienced Governors, but he chose Palin, one of our up-and-comers, instead, and fortunately for McCain, not a divisive choice.

McCain, of course, should be able to win now, but the race isn’t over, yet, and he still has a habit of making lots of gaffes. I’d put Palin out front and center more than himself. She combines looks, a pleasant personality AND an air of authority, too. If McCain wins, she may well find herself as President in less than 4 years, which I give better than 50% odds on.
