I would like to see John McCain pick Mitt Romney to counter McCain's neolib agenda.
As far as Obama goes...I'm with the OP on this one...No one really helps or hurts him....unless he goes with John Kerry...his name has been whispered about in the last couple of days.
John Kerry! I could only hope!

I see your point completely. But I disagree about Kerry as a poor choice for Obama.
Although he's still, at times, that bumbling goofy Senator we all love to chuckle at, his experience and connections in government, along with a whole 'lotta cash, could be just the thing Obama needs to bolster some of his soft spots.
I think if you look at Kerry's seniority along with his seat on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, he could potentially fill that experience gap that everyone seems to think is lacking in Obama's campaign.
Not to mention, Kerry & McCain have a pretty close relationship in regards to Veteran's affairs so any jabs about the troops from McCain would be fruitless with Kerry as a running mate.
With Kerry getting 59 million votes in '04, having him as VP would seal New England up and probably sway the mid-atlantic states down to Penn. and Marlyand to an Obama lock.
Just my opinion but Kerry would be far from the disaster you propose.
