    of the United States is..... "


    unacceptable?


    That was Steve Schmidt just now on Morning Joe... and HE isn't saying that the portrayal in Game Change was wrong.

    He also says that we need to start making Vice Presidential choices for actual considerations like can this person step into the job rather than for political considerations like what group does this person help with?

    FWIW, he thought John Edwards was ill-equipped for the big job, too.

    I came in here, ready to say something like 'Oh joy... another Palin thread... can we let it go, please???'

    But you have a legitimate point. Won't happen, but it's a valid point.

    Are you talking about having a separate election for the VP?


    I won't be able to see the movie, I don't get HBO, since Showtime is free.


    but going on what I know...


    We simply don't have enough actual facts to vote for Pres and it takes for fucking ever just to get down to Two candidates.

    Could you imagine the insanity of it all?

    How would the VP be picked?

    Would it come from a list of the Pres noms wish list?
    Would people put their names in to run separably, and then we have to have them campaign..

    krist; Would they even have to come from the same party?

    Imagine; McCain/H. Clinton
    Obama/Jeb Bush
    Biden/The Real Frankenstein.

    Or imagine getting Two hard core left or rights in at the same time.

    bleh, getting sick to my stomach just thinking about it.

    Bingo. Funny thing is, no one in the GOP appears to understand this.

    He should of talked about how the people elect a President. They elected a inexperienced Junior Senator that never ran a thing in his life.

    from what I gather, the gop doesn't care anymore and seemingly neither does Palin.

    but then, her :15 with me were up, completely, when she didn't run.

    Incorrect.

    while factually true.

    they elected the cool, young, tall dark and handsome black guy instead of the harpy.



    FOX news is the most fair and balanced.....H. Clinton

    No one is contesting the content of Game Change and the book has been out now for more than two years. I read it. The McCain-Palin DEBACLE is just a small part of the book. There's hundreds of pages dedicated to the tedious details of Obama's campaign and the extraordinary care they took NOT to have a big mess on their hands such as Sarah.

    The silly Republicans are now chiding Steve Schmidt although they revered him when in 2008 and they adored Palin. Can't have it both ways.
