    Is that what he is telling us by choosing Sarah Palin as running mate?
    Is he trying to sabatoogie his own campaign?

    That's how it looks to me.
    :lol:

    I figure McCain knows he can't handle the Presidency and would rather enjoy his final years in retirement. Who wouldn't?
    He's been having fun seeing how far this bid for the presidency would go, but no way does he really want the job. Palin is his key to guaranteeing a loss in the election.

    PLease vote in the poll above.

    You know, that's actually pretty feasible.

    Wow you're so fucking stupid. His choice has energized the conservative base and women. She's worth 20 million votes, IMO.

    I think for most of his years in congress and the senate Mccain has be a free lance type. He is called a maverick a term I don't really care for. He has played both sides of the aisle. He was even considered for the running mate to Kerry. Had he done that Bush more than likely would not have won his second term. McCain would now be looking not at a run for the White House but a second term as VP.

    Now in a run for the White House he has had to buy into the hard line Republican message. He is not that person. Sarah Palin is a hard line red state Republican. She is supposed to grab the hard line voters. I think this has cost him more of the center which in this tight a race he could hardly afford to lose. I really think he listened to the Bush talking heads and fell for a candidate that the American voters will see through. She may have some experience but do they really want her a heart beat away from the big chair when the holder would be a 72 year old man. Not likely.

    He has sacrificed his run for the hard line view of things. Had he just stayed John McCain and picked who he really wanted things may have gone better. Though I don't care for his other options from those that ran against him there were some fine Republicans that he could have hoped for. One such person would have been Chuck Hagal R Nebraska. He would have appealed to the center. The hard line right might have said no, but what other choice did they have. They surely would not have voted for Obama.
    They would have gone to McCain anyway. He sold himself out to poor stratagy and will not see the White House from the inside.
