    In the news today was the question to Condi as to whether or not she would consider a run as VP with McCain. :rofl: Even if I were to completely ignore the fact that she is as close to Bush as anyone, which is probably as large a liability as one could have with Independents, it would still be obvious that she doesn't have the presence needed to run for office. However, I would love to see McCain run with a Bush loyalist who is the personification of "boring!!!".

    The dream team is McCain-Cheney. That ticket would come in 3rd after "undecided".

    I also like McCain's line: "I am older than dirt and have more scars than Frankenstein."

    That reminds me of a local would-be politician who ran on the line: "I am as common as dirt". Haven't seen him since. :biggrin:

    Clinton proved that having a Boring VP is a good idea. You don't want your VP stealing your interns....i mean limelight.

    Bush proved that a president can step back and let the VP run the executive branch.

    At least Gore had a deep resonant voice. When Condi talks she sounds like she's about to cry. :biggrin:

    ...course I find Hillary to be a bit grating as well.

    McCain-Powell would be the real rep dream team. I don't think McCain would choose anyone with two z's in their name for that post. When you look at video of Obama on the stump, you see in the background a mix of gender and race. When you look at McCain, you see old white guys. This is a huge problem for McCain.

    If one follows the money then Tim Pawlenty is the bookies' favourite for the Republican's VP nomination @ 4/1 with Rice @ 12/1 and Powell @ 33/1.

    Obama is now 8/11 to be the next US president with Clinton pushed out to 6/1 and McCain @ 6/4.
