I think RR hit is on the head ... Who wouldn't want to be the Oldest Presidents VP ... by the President being so old, that means that their Chance of Being President are REALLY high ... higher then just about anyone else in the race .... I think it comes down between Huck and Romney, with Huck getting the Nod ...... And in about 3 or three years, we will have President Hucksterbee ...... What a country ...

Only 20? That really sounds low. All you have to do is look at Juan McCain's age to realize the VP job is just a heartbeat away.
1. Haley Barbour: A very conservative, a former governor of Mississippi.
2. Marsha Blackburn: The TN Congresswoman is attractive,
3. Tom Coburn: A rock-ribbed conservative with outstanding credentials on illegal immigration
4. Charlie Crist: Florida has been a key swing state in the last two elections
5. Jim DeMint: Relatively young, feisty, is a decent speaker,
6. Elizabeth Dole: Liddy is a little long in the tooth to be Veep,
7. Rudy Giuliani: having a pro-abortion moderate with a messy private life probably wouldn't do much to paper over McCain's problems with conservatives.
8. Mike Huckabee: Dogged, charismatic, and seems to be well liked by evangelicals, .
9. Duncan Hunter: Very conservative, has enormous credibility on border issues,
10. Kay Bailey Hutchison: she could help McCain reach out to the women's vote.
11. Joe Lieberman: McCain's friend Joe Lieberman, Given how much trouble McCain is having with winning over conservatives,
12. Sarah Palin: She's the extremely popular, very young governor of Alaska.
13. Tim Pawlenty: The governor of Minnesota, which could be a key swing state in 2008. He endorsed McCain early on.
14. Mike Pence: The relatively young Indiana Congressman is a favorite with conservatives
15. Rick Perry: Texas is an important state for Republicans. Perry is fiscally and socially conservative,
16. Rob Portman: he spent a decade in Congress in the key state of Ohio. He's also a long time friend of John McCain.
17. Colin Powell: a little too old to be Veep, and wouldn't do much to excite the Republican base. he's also very popular with the American people, is considerably more accomplished than Obama, and would steal a lot of Obambi's thunder if he turns out to be the nominee.
18. Condi Rice: She's very closely connected to Bush, and she has turned in a less than stellar performance as Secretary of State.
19. Tom Ridge: is a longtime friend of McCain who spent a decade in the House On the other hand, it's doubtful that he could carry Pennsylvania.
20. Mitt Romney: Although there seemed to be a surge of enthusiasm for Romney it was more "anti-McCain" than pro-Romney it's hard to see McCain offering Romney the job.
21. Mark Sanford: The governor of South Carolina is under 50, McCain isn't going to need much help holding the South.
22. Fred Thompson: "The Fred" he's another very old looking guy. Plus, would he really want to give up Law and Order
23. John Thune: He's a young, extremely conservative senator from South Dakota, who spent 3 terms in the House
24. JC Watts: He is a former football star who does have some baggage

donwhite, I live in SC and don't think Obama has a chance of winning here in November. McCain will do well in this red state.
