    Condi would be a better pick, too. We don't share the same beliefs, but I do have respect for her as a woman who is also black.

    Well in all seriousness she is much more qualified than Palin.

    As much as I despise Condi, she would make a better VP pick than Palin.

    A neighbor just told me that Condi did not want the VP job. Don't know if that's true or not.

    Condi's pro-choice and possibly a lesbian.

    Condi has the real thing at home, why go for the watered down version?

    edit. that and, it would be highly awkward to have to watch Barack and Condolezza debate...

    I would at least have an ounce of respect for McCain if he picked Condi.

    I heard Kay Bailey Hutchinson also turned McCain down, if it's true that Condi did too.

    That's interesting that McCain supposedly asked Condi and Kay about the VP slot before Sarah. It's obvious that he's gunning for the women vote (or the Hillary women still mad that she did'nt get the nom). that old bastard still has some tricks up his sleeve...

    Commentary: Is McCain out of his mind?
    By Paul Begala
    CNN Contributor




    Editor's note: Paul Begala, a Democratic strategist and CNN political
    contributor, was a political consultant for Bill Clinton's presidential
    campaign in 1992 and was counselor to Clinton in the White House.

    John McCain needs what Kinky Friedman calls "a checkup from the neck up."

    In choosing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to be his running mate, he is not
    thinking "outside the box," as some have said. More like out of his mind.

    Palin a first-term governor of a state with more reindeer than people, will
    have to put on a few pounds just to be a lightweight. Her personal story is
    impressive: former fisherman, mother of five. But that hardly qualifies her to
    be a heartbeat away from the presidency.

    For a man who is 72 years old and has had four bouts with cancer to have
    chosen someone so completely unqualified to become president is shockingly
    irresponsible. Suddenly, McCain's age and health become central issues in
    the campaign, as does his judgment
    .


    In choosing this featherweight, McCain passed over Tom Ridge, a decorated
    combat hero, a Cabinet secretary and the former two-term governor of the
    large, complex state of Pennsylvania. iReport.com: 'McCain pick might be a
    gimmick'

    He passed over Mitt Romney, who ran a big state, Massachusetts; a big
    company, Bain Capital; and a big event, the Olympics.

    He passed over Kay Bailey Hutchison, the Texas senator who is
    knowledgeable about the military, good on television and -- obviously --
    a woman.

    He passed over Joe Lieberman, his best friend in the Senate and fellow
    Iraq Kool-Aid drinker.

    He passed over former congressman, trade negotiator and budget director
    Rob Portman.

    And he also passed over Mike Huckabee, the governor of Arkansas.

    For months, the McCainiacs have said they will run on his judgment
    and experience. In his first presidential decision, John McCain has shown
    that he is willing to endanger his country, potentially leaving it in the hands
    of someone who simply has no business being a heartbeat away from the
    most powerful, complicated, difficult job in human history.

    Who knew she was a future GOP VP candidate?

    ^^I haven't seen that much hard-hitting journalism since...well, ever. I like how the other anchor sarcastically told her not to 'go overboard.'

    He's organized and led an effective campaign organization. By comparison, McCain's had nearly went bankrupt. He also has a set of coherent thoughts about foreign policy. McCain doesn't seem to think clearly at all.

    WHEN is McCain going to understand that people that were pro-Hillary were so because of her stand on the issues and NOT because of her gender??

    God help us if McCain gets elected and then croaks while in office...

    This "very little experience" crap is ridiculous. Obama was a law professor who taught constitutional law for 12 years, has been on the board of directors of a number of organizations, was an Illinois state senator for 7 years and is a US Senator. That's a lot of experience for someone who is only 47 years old.
