    Yes, that is exactly who suggested her to McCain. Do you really think the republican party had no one else better than her? McCain took her to shore up the evangelicals who she belongs to, and trusted their advice.

    that appointment would help our nation and would also be a wise political move by Obama
    Lol....you libs love Colin Powell now ?

    Unbelievable.

    Personally I'm pushing for Sheila Jackson Lee to step in for Clinton.

    She's the personification of liberal ethos.

    such an awful choice
    average intellect
    significantly below average charisma
    dreadful speaker
    no apparent ability to empathize
    zero political accomplishments other than possess the wealth required to get elected
    there is nothing about him which says this guy should be America's face to the diplomatic world
    even worse, his appointment would open up a senate seat to be once again filled by a talented republican; the only one who could win an election in a democrat stronghold
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    Many are debatable, but others seem to possess qualities you would like in a Presidential candidate. Not surprising, given that the man ran for President, already. Nevertheless, these are not needed in a Secretary of State, though they can be beneficial. Clinton did not deliver great speeches as Sec. of State, neither did Rice. Some folks have an "it" factor: Powell, Kissinger, etc etc, but it is not necessary.

    There are some issues involved that I will think might come up, but on the whole, I have to conclude you are exaggerating the problems with Kerry.

    Proof please ?? That would help this is the first time I have heard this not disagreeing with you but highly concernd. I think if it is the Republican Party is in serious trouble if they are letting bible thumpers pick the running mates.

    Then you need not worry yourself. As the Southern Cons have been moved to the back of the bus. Which is where they will remain. Whether they like it or not!
