Who do you think John McCain should pick as his VP for November. Plenty of possibilities, it certainly wasn't limited to the 9 in this poll!

Note: The poll isn't 'who is your favourite Republican' or 'which VP has the cutest ass' ;)

He won't choose Rice.

He's going to have a very tough time beating the Democrats as it is, seeing as the US fears Republicans after Bush's f*ck up

Anyway, if you recall Condi is in Bush's cabinet, therefore associated with Bush. Granted, she was against the Iraq war, but for McCain to choose her would be a big risk.

Granted, Rice is amazing and I'd LOVE :hearts: to see her as VP but the only way McCain is gonna win is if he complete sevors any ties to the Bush administration

if hillary is the democrat nominee
then condi
else
if obama is the nominee(99.9 %)
any latino guy
latinos will win this election against obama and his african american+loony liberals+youth voters
unfortunately mccain is too nice to adopt karl rove tactics :cry:
that is what i admire about hillary

obama is winning by a landslide
and this country will become a loony left nation
time for me to finally leave this country

He isn't going anywhere near a Bush Administration official.
Rice isn't a politician, she's never campaigned for anything
for herself. She would do badly.

Powell is the same. He's an egomaniac as well at this point, and
very liberal on many things. I think he'll back Obama, aiming for
a top Cabinet post again.


Huckabee, no. Southern pull, and not much else.
Romney, no.
Same reason - Romney would kill McCain. Americans will vote for a black, a woman,
hispanic, an old guy. They will not vote for a Mormon. His campaign proved that in 2008.

The governors of Minnesota and Florida, yes, definite maybes.
Gov. of Alaska, not anymore. She had a child recently with downs syndrome, and
is devoting herself to her family more than poltics these days.
Gov. of Lousiana, maybe. He's too young though. But, I'd prefer him.

I see him going with a Governor or a female Congresswoman with some business or
economic experience. He needs something he doesn't have.

May 7th, 2008, 05:13 PM
Graham, Huckabee, Hagel, would be disasters.

McCain needs to shore up his conservative base, since he has none.
He also needs someone the talk radio crowd can embrace. None of the
above do that.

Right now, I'd say McCain is going to lose in a big way.
Actually, no matter who the GOP candidate is, they would lose, to
either Obama or Hillary. It's just historical cycles, added to
negative economic mood.

I think a woman, minority, younger candidate would help him

He really needs someone who is a brilliant campaigner...who can spark
his campaign with enthusiasm.

He's going to want someone who's ultra-conservative, because he's getting all of this talk about how he's too liberal to win the republican nomination.

Jack Baur ('24').

Tony Blair.


John Elway.


Judge Judy.


Ted Nugent.


Sean Hannity.



Actually, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn would be a good pick, from TEnnessee,
moderate conservative, very talk radio friendly and active.


Someone from Colorado, New Mexico, PA, Missouri, Florida, who has a heartbeat,
personality, and a clean record.

Catholics are in play if Obama is the presidential candidate
any that spring to mind ???

I don't like McCain at all or any Republicans really, but I think figuring out VP candidates is interesting no matter what. I've read some things on him picking Crist from Florida - if Clinton is the nominee he can fight 50/50 in Florida, and if its Obama he pretty much seals that state up I'd imagine.

florida is in his bag given that obama is the candidate
he needs to make a push for ohio or pennsylvania
if he bags 2 out of the 3 he will negate any of the red states with huge african american populations turning blue

rofl it's not going to be Condoleeza rice or maybe she can cuz with Condi on board they can be more racist than usual cuz well they have a black person on their ticket...so obviously they can't be racist :rolleyes:
Romeny would be a mistake....although actually maybe not...cuz as VP the focus won't be on him as much and so maybe his Mormon faith won't be as big of deal breaker. He could def. draw in some fiscal conservatives while I think social conservatvies would vote for John McCain regardless or just not turn up.

it'll prolly be someone randmon i've never heard of. Maybe Jeb bush...lol that would be awesome if McCain tied himself even more closely to the Bush Presidency. :drool:

i really doubt McCain is too nice to employ the Karl Rove tactic. He won't do it himself but other people will do it for him. He is a politician after all he knows how to get his hands dirty not matter what his "image" might say otherwise. Republican party will just have to thread the needle and not go too far..cuz in the U.S. it's more than okay to be racist as long as you're not blatant about it. actually I hope Karl Rove and co go too far and say or do something outrageously racist cuz that'll def. give Obama a good chance to win the Presidency.

karl rove wouldn't do well with mccain given that he spread the lies about mccain fathering a child of a black mother and dragging his adopted daughter into it to effectively end his campaign run

Theres some talk going around that it could be Giuliani - it would certainly boost McCains chances of winning in Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire and even Pennsylvania....plus the two don't hate each other (like Romney, or Rice).

I still can't decide whether Rice-Giuliani-Pawlenty plus I forgot Charlie Christ :rocker2: (although Florida should go to McCain over Obama....unless a few million blacks move there :lol:)

It's not totally out of the realm of possibility. She wants to be president more than anything and there's no way in hell she's going to win the nomination or be Obama's running mate after trashing him. She'd have to wait till 2016 at the least. In the mean time she's been cozying up to McCain at Obama's expense. He is old and in questionable health and there's the possibility that he could bite the dust (one way or another ... you never know with the Clintons :o ) leaving her president before 2012. And she could bring some of her supporters over to his side. It would be weird though.

Jack Bauer would never sink low enough to align himself with a Republican. The show portrays Republicans in a terrible light as it is anyway. :lol:

The constitution should be amended to allow Arnold to run as McCain's VP. :silly:
