McCain-Clinton Ticket????????

Mike King's picture

Found an interesting article at that while quite extreme, was indeed interesting.

What if there was such a thing? Would Her Highness subordinate herself to be placed as a number 2, would McCain be maverick enough to do such a thing? Could it be a precursor to the demise of the two major parties?

Would be an interesting subject over coffee.

He has enough right wing problems now. He wouldn't get one-third of the republican votes with that VP. You know that!
This is case of a well qualified VP who could be President if necessary but that isn't the reason they are picked---now is it?

This plan of yours is similar to Shinsecki arguing with Rumsfeld and the JCS about how to do Iraq AFTER the war! A foolish and expensive idea of Shinsecki---not to mention just a safe alternative. They will throw out roses for our boys to walk on!!!! Didn't they throw out roses for Ali Babba and the forty thieves? Open, Sesame!

but that would never make it past the Republican Convention. After all, you have those "diehards" like mudcat would never stand for it...then again, mudcat thinks that McCain will take Lieberman and then HE will be president in four years, so that tells you how touch reality mudcat is. Keep the faith.

Even a dead fish can go with the flow.

The idea, which I believe came from a Michael Medved article, is unashamedly hypothetical but does provoke a thought process for those of us who still cling to the optimistic. For McCain to select Ms Clinton would leave the Republican Party no room to select an alternative that would have a chance of winning.

Further it, in my view, would give candidates the opportunity to place allegiance to state above that of their individual parties. I believe that should something of this magnitude actually take place we would witness a substantial "move" within the Legislative Branch because should they win these Congressmen would be quick to abandon a sinking ship. Those legislators not following suit would then be deemed obstructionists whose careers would be over.

Granted, all this is surely hypothetical, but is it not the type of "out of the box" thinking that could possibly cure the ills we now have inside the beltway?

Just my two cents worth.

McCain will pick Lieberman as his VP. Obama may pick her, but that won't help him or her. Get used to President McCain and 4 years later - President Lieberman.

Write it down. This is what will happen after all the nonsense.

These picks must be your personal picks, because they sure aren't going to happen!
McCain picks a semi-democrat when he already has enough trouble with the right wing of his party! What state would Lieberman help him in?

Obama picks a white woman who would give him headaches every day with her constant wanting to be number one. A white man probably who can bring in a couple of states. Richardson a probability.

The party brain trust will provide the best alternatives in order to get elected---the best person has little to do with it.

Remember Kennedy picking Johnson? Johnson brought in the whole mid-south for Kennedy.

Try to think about who would help you get elected---not who should have it! Anybody can be President if required! Even Harry Truman.
