I will vote only for one Presidential candidate and that is Ron Paul, because he seems to be the only person running that knows what he is doing in to support the people

For Sen. Obama, my heart says John Edwards but I think Gov. Bill Richardson may be a more popular choice.

For Sen. McCain, I sincerely pray that he follows the sage advice of bill kriston and takes clarence thomas, but I think the smart money is on mitt romney because, what's better than a pander bear? Why TWO pander bears, of course!

Hillary is "ready to lead on Day 1" but hasn't bothered to begin thinking about a Vice Presidential choice yet? Of course now, if she has, that would really be premature.

And to think that we have only 6 more months of electoral disingenuousness to look forward to. After that what will we do for entertainment?

For Sen. Obama, my heart says John Edwards but I think Gov. Bill Richardson may be a more popular choice." Bill Richardson should be the one on top.... but he just doesn't have that charm. I feel we are of a person like him..

I will vote only for one Presidential candidate and that is Ron Paul," Can he still run?

For Sen. McCain, I sincerely pray that he follows the sage advice of bill kriston and takes clarence thomas," Clarence Thomas is not very popular, I have nothing against him. But, being a supreme court Justice, is he allowed to run?

You can forget Mitt, his religion has been deionized more than any other in the US.

Dear Mr. McCain and Mr. Obama,

I just to let you know I am available! Vote for Skip or skip the vote!

For a running mate: I offer myself to either Mr.McCain or Mr. Obama, but not to Hillary.

just wanted to make that point clear so there are no misunderstandings

Obama's weak areas are with working class whites and latinos: how about Jennifer Lopez?

Why is there never any mention of Ralph Nader, did he quit? Or is it because "they" don't want him to win?

sabiwabi,

I think it's more that "they" don't want him to run. It's just about as certain as anything can be in the realm of human decisions that he won't win.

I hope he is still going to run. His running mate, Eddie, is also cool!

**** ME...ME...ME....ME!!!!!!!

**** PICK ME!!!!!

McCain needs more than a 'running' mate, he needs a wheelchair.

Even though I support Obama, I'm really worried Sen. McCain's heart is going to give before the election.

Actually, I'm kind of hoping Obama picks Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel of Nebraska - Republican heads would be exploding in frustration all over the US of A!

And, not to mention, Republican Chuck is pretty anti-war and would probably support Obama's drive to bring the troops home.

If Republicans attacked that, they'd be like punching themselves in the head and America-supporters like me would be weeping with laughter for months, ha ha ha ha ha!!!!! :-)

Taka,

Mitt Romney would drive the right-wing nutters crazy. Well, crazier. A mormon and a "RINO". Even your hardcore partisan hack will have a hard time avoiding spontaneous internal combustion over that one.

Obama's wife will try to decide who he picks. She wears the trousers in their household. Doesn't like Hillary because she believes she is the Next Hillary.

But at this moment I'd say Obama - who still has no real message other than mouthing "hope" and "change" - is dangerously beholden to polls and to "netroots" activism, mass online emoting and hysteria, which young "liberals" and aged hippies alike now seem to equate with the expression of "true democracy."

Obama is also bound to the national liberal media which helped create him.

super delegate,

John McCain is the distaff partner in a morganatic marriage but Michelle wears the pants in the Obama family? And then there's Bill. Looks like we're doomed no matter what happens.

We've come a long way from "Obama is a muslim," I see. He's gone all the way from being a member of a religion that puts men ahead of women to being a hen-pecked husband. Amazing, truly amazing.

"a hen-pecked husband"

Can a hen-pecked husband beat a war hero?

"never-say-die Hillary Rodham Clinton"

Go, Hillary!

"Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards"

Edwards: I will not accept the nomination for vice president!

Wendy's counter clerk: Would you like a Frosty with that?

Taka,

Thanks for pointing out the obvious. ;)

The only question that actually matter's is who is Senator Obama going to choose to be his vice-president?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Madverts - That would be, who is Senator Obama going to choose to be his vice presidential running mate? That's if he actually gets past Hillary.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

If nominated, obama should choose Mondale. At least he knows there are 50 states and Afghanis don't speak Arabic.

Personally I'd like to see McCain pick Lieberman, that would throw the Republicans and the Democrats into fits. It makes sense though if you think about it, both moderates who are disliked by their parties (although Lienerman is an independent now).

Uh, sarge;

I said "the only question that actually matters".

Please read before posting.

Madverts, No, you said "the only question that actually matter's" - please check punctuation before posting. But aside from that, Obama is not going to have a vice president, he's only going to have a vice presidential running mate - if he gets past Hillary.

"Uh, sarge"

Is that supposed to make me feel inferior? Is your intellect really superior to mine? Hey, Madverts - I'm laughing at the superior intellect.

usaexpat - Personally I'd like to see McCain pick Obama - that would create the Nightmare Team!

RR - Good one.

Don't you have to retire in America at 65 under Federal law? Why is McCain still looking for a job?

"Don't you have to retire in America at 65 under Federal law? Why is McCain still looking for a job?"

He loves his country.

Naturally, your average Obama supporter doesn't quite understand...
