Selecting Lieberman would indeed anger the party. Lieberman is a trusted friend of McCain. They've been friends for decades. But unless McCain
discounts what's good for the party completely, he'll pick someone else. Lieberman is not young and doesn't come across as filling in where McCain
is weak. It would be a completely selfish pick, on McCain's part and probably cause him to lose the election.
I don't see an upside, either. (Of course, for ME, as an Obama supporter, there's a HUGE upside, but we're talking about McCain's campaign.)
I agree with you, it's going to be Romney or Pawlenty. Or it could be Tom Ridge. BUt at this time, I'm thinking Pawlenty because of his age and
"nice guy" thing he has going.
I doubt picking a female would have any effect on Hillary supporters. They love Hillary for who she is, not because of her gender.
Kay Bailey Hutchison
is a pretty "good" Republican. She's anti-abortion,
anti-affirmative action, anti-gay rights, opposes getting out of Iraq, government funding for health care and alternative fuels. She favors prayer in
schools and the death penalty and the Patriot Act...
I think she would probably do fine. And she just might be selected to show that the Republican party can be "progressive", too! But I doubt it. Not
many people know her.
