    Ok, time to start moving along, right? :lol:

    The Republican Convention will be starting within a few days. Any predictions on who McCain is going to pick as his vice president?

    How about Condoleezza Rice? Now .... that might take a little wind out of the Democrats sail? Not that it would change my vote for Obama ... but it sure would make an exciting ticket for the Republicans, no?? :D

    apparently rove wants romney, and im inclined to think thats who it will go to. i cant imagine his party would let him take lieberman. and the other names just arent that appealing, except huckabee who is the obvious darkhorse.

    Personally... my favorite pick would be Sarah Palin... not only do I like her style, experience as an executive in being governor, but you would also have to like the pick of a woman in an election year when a lot of Hillary supporters are very disgruntled...

    I am not really sold on Romney.. I like his business sense, but he still has a lot of negatives that many groups will focus on. I don't think Rice is interested and has NO shot at being picked. Huckabee will not be picked, and I am happy about that. Rudy will get some other position and not VP.

    I think Romney is the front runner in terms of odds of getting it, though... Lieberman a close 2nd

    Damned shame the Neo-cons burned the bridge with Colin Powell, isn't it?

    With him on the ticket, I expect that the republicans would actually win, despite Bush's abysmal record.

    But you know how it is...lost trust is never found.

    They used that honorable man to lie for them, and I doubt he'll ever forgive the GOP for doing that to him.

    Outside of a wild card, the only names I can think of are Lieberman (fail), Romney (fail), and Hutchinson (would pull the CLITonian vote). condi won't do it.

    it's going to have to be someone who leans farther right than Mccain's history of votes on social issues. Someone who will tempt voters out from being apathetic on the right wing.. especially, in the event that mccain dies on office.

    I do like Steele.. and not just because I'm from MD... but I really think he is in a good place now with what he is doing... though I fully expect him to become more of a political force in upcoming elections and I would not be surprised to see him actually in one of the next Presidential races

    :thup: I think Colin Powell is one of the last Republicians that I still have respect for. I agree with you and wonder if George Bush knows how bad he screwed up, losing him. He is one of the best!

    As far as Bush knowing how bad he screwed up? Not a chance! :doubt:
