    Perhaps its me?

    Jk asked a R Sen, McCain if he would consider to be his running mate. McCain declined the offer.

    Isn't John Kerry basically telling the democratic party that , of all the democrats he could choose as his mate, he chooses someone from Bush's party....

    Can this be his ruination?

    What do democrats think of this?

    What about his second choice? Will he dig through the treches to find one second best vp from his own party? Or will he continue to search for a running mate on Bush's side???

    If I were Kerry, I'd take McCain for my vp (if McCain had wanted the job) because that ticket would win the election.

    I'm a Democrat, and it doesn't bother me at all that Kerry was interested in McCain. McCain is a good man and has integrity. To me it shows that Kerry is actually willing to reach accross party lines to move this country forward, something Bush said he would do ("I'm a unifier") but has not done at all.

    I feel the same exact way about Zell Miller.

    This says that Kerry knows his own party doesn't want him because nobody wants to go against Billary's wishes and take the vp spot. Listen the Clintons still run the Democratic party and they want Hillary to run in '08. Look for there to be a big nomination fight at the Demo convention with the Clintons running the show behind the scene.

    Kerry/McCain wouldn't stand a chance in hell.

    Now that is a load of crap. In 2001, all I ever saw Bush do was reach across the aisle to Democrats. He even invited the Kennedys over to the White House to watch the movie about the Cuban misslie crisis. How was his kindness rewarded? Judicial nominations filibustered, hate rhetoric unchecked and tacitly approved... Democrats hate Bush more passionately than they hated Reagan.

    The evidence is against you. The polls show Kerry/McCain would win fairly easily if the election were today.

    It takes more that an invite to dinner to reach across party lines. You have to actually build a consensus. Can you name any legislation that Bush built a consensus on, prior to Sept 11?
    Hell, he couldn't even keep all of the Republicans happy he was so far right (remember the senator from Vermont that left the party?).

    Nope, the 1st amendment hating McCain combined with the traitor Kerry would galvanize Repubs to vote in numbers never seen before. Big difference between Demos and Repubs, you guys actually believe polls.

    Jumpin' Jim Jeffords? He is farther to the left than half the Democrats in the Senate, and was basically a holdover from the pre-Reagan revolution in which Republicans could still be liberal. You guys can have him.

    There's a difference between being a unifier and being someone who will allow the dems to jeopardize our national security to pacify their eurosocialist liberal cohorts.
