I don't know.  I'm seeing McCain as being president thanks to his War mongering friends rigging the votes and I wouldn't be surprised if George Bush becomes his running mate.

He's just another Bob Dole, an old, unelectable twat. The people behind the scenes have decided it's time for another Democrat.

Rigging the vote not necessary, at least not if Hillary has the democratic nomination. If it's Obama, then the vote really will be about the war.

W is not eligible for VP because he not eligible for the presidency. Same goes for those rumors about Bill being Hillary's VP

This is as goofy as the crackpot idea that being born on a military base in a foreign country to American citizens makes one ineligible for the office of president. It was a crackpot idea when it was supposed to be Al Gore, for starting life in the District of Columbia, instead of an official state.

The real reason is that the masses are pissed off at government right now vis-a-vis the economy and the war and they believe that changing parties = changing course. Stupid bastards.

The war and the economy will cause the main damage since we have a Republican President currently and the economy will be further in the shitter come voting time.  That, and the economy is inextricably linked to the War on Terror, which McCain is even more hawkish on than Clinton and Obama.  The Democrats will probably also kill him on healthcare by claiming that he doesn't care about the poor uninsured.  Sure, it'll all be sad to watch this theater of the absurd, but that's how I see it going down.  I've lost faith in the ability of people to think rationally.  My only hope is that whoever is elected pulls us the hell out of Iraq and Afghanistan ASAP.  Assuming that happens we know it's a Democrat, so I would then hope that s/he is unable to push through his/her health care plan.  Basically, if McCain wins the war will bankrupt us.  If a Democrat wins, there's still a chance the war will bankrupt us and there's a risk of further health care messiness.  I would predict that McCain could squander our money faster, but the changes the Democrats would make would screw us in the long run and be harder to reverse.  It's evil versus evil and I'm not taking either side.

The whole "born in Panama" thing is SO blown out of proportion. Not only was McCain born on a military base, but it was located in the Panama Canal Zone, which was a United States territory at the time, up until Carter gave it away.

I could never consider voting for somebody who wants to be in Iraq for 100 years.

I mean, seriously, just 100 years?! Why don't you just throw up the white flag, McCrazy! Surrender-monkeys like him are traitors and should be hanged for wanting to cut-and-run.

From RawStory via JonesReport -- McCain explains Sunni/Shiite 'confusion': Al-Qaeda 'not necessarily just Sunni' --

Quote
Sen. John McCain, defending his recent troubles differentiating between the two major branches of Islam, suggested today that the terror network al-Qaeda encompasses both Sunni and Shi'a.

When asked today by a Fox News host about recent gaffes in which he confused Sunnis and Shiites, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee smiled, shook his head and replied, "I've been to Iraq eight times, I know the leaders, I know the situation on the ground, I know that Sunni and al-Qaeda are closely tied... The question I was asking and the question that needs to be answered is, How widespread is al-Qaeda's influence in the region as well as in Iraq?

"I believe that al-Qaeda does a lot of things," McCain continued, "including with organizations and parts of the populations that are not necessarily just Sunni." McCain did not elaborate.

Al-Qaeda is a decidedly Sunni organization, having been founded in 1988 by an alliance of Sunni militant groups around the world. Iraq, and Iran in particular, are on the other hand predominantly Shiite nations. Sunnism and Shi'ism are ancient and distinct denominations of Islam.

Some are concerned that the hawkish McCain, a vociferous supporter of the war on terror, is unable or unwilling to clearly discern whom it is allied forces are battling.

Less than a month ago, while visiting Jordan with Sen. Joe Lieberman, McCain said several times that Iran was supplying al-Qaeda, prompting Lieberman to correct him on-camera.

Just in the last week, McCain has misstated details of the ceasefire in Basra and again confused Sunnis and Shiites while referencing al-Qaeda during a Senate hearing with U.S. commander of allied forces Gen. David Petraeus.
