With all the grumbling that has been going on about each candidates choice for Vice President, I thought it prudent to start a thread so members could
voice their opinions on who they think should have been the choice of both Mr. Obama and Mr. McCain. Many people have come out stating each choice
was not in the best interest of the party, the person, and the country, so let's hear it...who do you think they should have chosen?
I'll get it started.
Democratic Choice. If it were me, I would have chosen Hillary Clinton. Firstly, she was widely popular with a great deal of Democrats, and a great
deal of undecided people. Her showing in the Democratic race proved this, and people are still talking about her. She has a proven record in
politics, and would have been a great choice.
Republican Choice. I would have chosen Tim Pawlenty. This choice would have satisfied the "young choice" criteria that I believe went a long way
towards why Palin was chosen. He also would have helped win a few key battle states due to his appeal as a "blue collar" kind of guy. Working
middle class people seem to like him. He's also an Evangelical, which is a group that McCain struggles with due to some of his policies and
So, your thoughts?
