McCAIN/CLINTON ticket anyone?

Just throwing it out there for the peeps to comment on the VEEP possibility...might be a great alliance and a sure win in the fall. Any thoughts...

McCain would keep having to tell Bill to get out of his chair.

namaste said...

nah! unless the veep can influence supreme court justice selections. then... maybe.

;)

Mike said...

Hmm... I don't think Hillary would want McCain as her Veep. It may be the only chance he has of getting into the White House, though. :)

mccain was on the daily show last night and said that he was asking dwight schruit (from the office) to be his vp!
and one of the morning people i listen to said that hil is going to run as an indy.
so much to look forward to this fall!

Not going to happen, but fun to think of the look on Obama's smug face at the announcement if it did!

As an HRC supporter I would love it. Obama's taken the election from Hillary--why shouldn't she take it back? I don't think she would do it--obviously she wouldn't want to be tasked with carrying out McCain's policies. I don't think Obama is smart enough to pick her himself.

Um, no.

Chatti Patti...interesting thought isn't it...I think McCain wouldn't go for it but it is interesting speculating. :)N


Paul, you are right...3 is a crowd. Are you really a hermit? :)N

Maria, only if McCain kicks the bucket and then conservatives will be livid. you are right...too little influence for the VEEP for it to be plausible. :)N

Mike, touche, I think you have it right. Hillary wants no part of number 2...:)N


BA...if you are right, get ready for some crazy general campaigning! it will be a circus. She'll be the benedict arnold of the democratic party...love it. :)N

Karen, the smug face turning into shocked face would be worth the announcement. you are right not going to happen. :)N

anonymous, thanks for the comment and I think there are a lot of Hill supporters that will go to the McCain camp. He is a moderate contrary to what the media will portray him as...I think Hill and McCain aren't as far apart as Obama and McCain are. thanks for stopping. :)N

Sandi...you are very decisive, what a woman! :)N

DB said...

Lol. I would vote for that taking into consideration McCain's age and health history. ;-)

I actually read somewhere about a (long-shot) Obama/Collin Powell ticket. I laughed at first, then thought about it...

If anyone crosses party lines to be VP, McCain is the only one who would consider it (and once did consider it!) and that clearly can't happen.

Nikki said...

I think the Collin Powell ticket is not that long of a shot, though it would have to be reversed. Obama would have to be Veep. Far righties would freak out, but the Ann Coulters of the party are already calling Hillary more conservative than McCain. I say make them put their money where their mouths are...:)N

Paul is a Hermit said...

Yes, I am a hermit, Nikki, but taking advantages of modern inventions, like electricity. So, if there is a more severe code a hermit is supposed to follow, I'm failing.

Nikki said...

hey Paul...I have never known a hermit before nor do I know what that entails. I am glad you are taking advantage of modern convieniences, especially the computer! I sometimes think I am a hermit myself because I am a major homebody, I like to be in hanging out in my own space. I appreciate you reading the blog and your great comments...:)N

A McCain/Clinton ticket would be great. It would insure a Barack Obama win as a mandate!

Nikki said...

Anonymous...thanks for the comment! Nothing can ensure a mandate at this point except the utopian Obama-ites that Obama will get the nomination for the dems. Unless the rest of the nation is ready to creep to the far left, I see it as ignorance voting on girations felt at rally's. Hillary voters are already bitter and a more moderate older version of her in the form of John McCain, feels more comfy vs. the historically inclined voters in the Obama camp. Hillary voters are more savvy than Obama voters. sorry I said it. thanks for the comment and for reading! :)N
