McCain’s VP List

Sources say: The list has been whittled down to six contenders:

  • Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty;
  • Former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell;
  • Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney;
  • Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin;
  • U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn; and
  • Former Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge.
  • As I’ve been saying, Sarah Palin is the “wow” candidate out of that group. She has what McCain needs to spice up his campaign.

    Sources familiar with the Republican’s VP search process list Pawlenty and Romney as the odds-on favorites but said there was some preference to pick a woman or minority as McCain’s running mate. That would mean Powell, Palin, the 44-year-old Alaska governor, or former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina.

    Lieberman, Ridge, Powell and Palin are considered more wild-card picks than Pawlenty and Romney, according to sources familiar with the McCain search.

    Well, I hope he listens to Newt’s advice, and doesn’t go for one of “the boring white guys”. Boring is not the way to go, this year. McCain needs to go wild!

    Desperately seeking Sarah
    Americans need a little Palin Power

    Sarah Palin the current Governor of Alaska is John McCain’s ultimate choice for VP. I do believe a woman is next in line for the presidency. All Conservatives like her. She is popular in Alaska. Hillary supporters would relish her. She would solidify a 12 or possibly 16 year Republican executive.

    John McCain’s boring campaign is wearing thin. I need a little Palin Power to get me interested again. They would say ‘but she is only a half term Governor!’ And your point is?

    That’s all I have to say about that!”

    Statements like that make it sound like he considers Palin an affirmative action pick.

    Alice,
    I am not a chick so I will differ to you on this one, I did however think that as long as Hillary were in the mix it would be a Me Too! pick. Now not so much. The little I know of Palin, I do have a positive vibe.

    (maybe that is because she is good looking you never know)
