I think its going to be Kay Bailey Hutchison. She seems to accomplish everything that McCain needs to do with this pick. She's strong on most
conservative issues, which will appeal to the base. She'll also help among moderate undecided women voters and possibly the angry Hillary voters
Baggage? Not much. She isn't 100% pro-life, which could cause a few problems, but her record is mostly in line with the party on the issue. She
was also the subject of an investigation in the early 90s, but it went nowhere due to a lack of evidence, so that one probably checks out OK.
Otherwise? No apparent problems.
Eric Cantor, the Virginia Representative.
Michael Steele, GOPAC Chairman
And yes, even Condoleezza Rice, despite the Bush administration ties. In fact, I think she'd make an outstanding VP candidate.
And I could certainly be wrong, but I do not believe that Mitt Romney will be a serious contender. The primary fight was just too ugly, and as
we've seen with the Obama/Biden ticket, those words will be used against the ticket. The fact that he's only recently become a conservative
hurts his chances severely as well.
