Okay, McCain, You Can Start Worrying Now


I had to read this headline twice-- I wasn't sure I'd actually read it right. Nebraska Republican Chuck Hagel has said that he'd consider an offer to be vice-president not for fellow Republican Senator/Vietnam War vet John McCain, but Democrat Barack Obama. Here's the story about it:

I hate to get mean so early, but I'll add that the New York Times is reporting that Obama has a double digit lead in polls over McCain, 51-36 percent.

Please, please-- I blew out all the candles on my birthday cake this year; can I get my wish that McCain picks Lieberman, Romney or Huckabee as his running mate, just to make absolutely certain that he'll lose?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let's hope so -- though Chickapee signed on for Fox$$$$$$

Lieberman can then be the kiss of death twice ;->

Almost no one likes Romney as a candidate, not even Michiganders.

p.s. I love Chuck H!

GObama!

Hagel's statements don't surprise me at all. He's the genuine Republican maverick nowadays, not McCain.

P.S. GObama!

That is pretty amazing, when was the last time that a president and vice president were not of the same party...

Andrew Johnson ;->

Thomas Jefferson before that?

He's no Hannibal Hamlin...

I was hoping for the Kerry-McCain Vietnam National Unity ticket in 2004. Alas . . .

I think McCain/Huckabee has a great ring to it. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Oh, wait, even better maybe--McCain/Giuliani!
