    There is only one VP candidate who has actually felt the middle classes struggle, Palin. Who do you think will serve your interests as VP?

    Neither one. It's not an important position, usually.

    interesting that you'd try to diminish the position. dick cheney constructe our energy policy with his oil company exec and lobbyist buddies and was one of the architects of our failed Iraq policy along with his PNAC buddies.

    Not to mention that 20% of all VP's end up being pres by virtue of resignation or death.

    But keep downplaying it so sarah doesn't seem as unacceptable.

    You do realize Sarah Palin has refused to release her tax returns until after tomorrow?

    And you do realize that Joe Biden's family only makes $30,000 more then Sarah Palin's does a year.

    Interesting that you bring up a VP that is on his way out. It's interesting that you don't bring up these comments.....

    Today we are voting on funding our troops on the front lines. We can disagree about whether we should be in Iraq at all and we can disagree with the President’s failed policies, but as long as Americans are in harms way, we need to give them the best possible protection this country has. To me, that is a sacred obligation. In terms of protection, there are a lot of reasons to vote for this funding – it provides $2 billion to fight deadly Improvised Explosive Devices, it funds 25 C-130s to replace planes worn out by non-stop use moving people and supplies around the war zone, it gives more assets to families, it funds much needed military health care, and it provides $1.7 billion for Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles. That is a good thing.

    Opps...the record speaks more clearly than the talking points I guess...:eusa_whistle:
