...but since a VP candidate is usually chosen to bring big state electoral votes...

Like Delaware (Biden)? Or, Wyoming (Cheney)? Or, Palin (Alaska)? Or, Gore? (TN) a Southern State paired with a Southern State. It seems to me that all that conventional wiscodom about picking the VP candidate for what he/she could bring to the polls was abandoned after Reagan and Bush.

I'm just tweaking you a little bit. I know that the ticket would never be Santorum and Ryan -- 2 young, handsome, smart, Catholic, pro-life leaders, although I'd vote for them in a heartbeat. And Wisconsin is used to being like Rodney Dangerfield, although we've produced a lot of great leaders here. (Even Dick Cheney is a product of our flagship University.)

Why do you think the left makes such a hulla-balloo? They are scared to death, and they are going to be trounced in the recall election. They are already talking about changing their candidate because Gov. Walker is polling so strong. I wouldn't be surprised to see WI turn red in the November election. The unionistas have awakened a sleeping tiger.

Wisconsin has Gov. Scott Walker, Rep. Paul Ryan, Sen. Ron Johnson, and a whole back bench of lesser known, but highly competent, leaders in the legislature.

Pssssst! Shhhhhh! We're greener than Oregon.

Well, I suppose Biden like Cheney was supposed to offer gravitas LOLOLOL. Sarah was to get a base - without her I don’t think McCain had much of a base. No explaining Gore...a giant idiot!

Someone here suggested the Governor of New Mexico - female minority. I guess the press would be happy since they wouldn’t have to go so far away to go through her trash as they did with Sarah. Allen West might help but as a 1st term congressman I don’t see his experience as stacking up against a governor. On the other hand, he’s in Florida.

Glad this isn’t my decision because this election is probably the most important in many decades - if not ever.

Other than the sermon I heard at church this morning, that is the best news I’ve heard all day my friend. Thank you.
