The Democrats probably won't want to go that route. So we would be looking at governors. Hickenlooper comes to mind and would keep Colorado dem even if Christie was the GOP nominee. But that is where I fall short as the rest of the Democratic Governors are from solid Democratic states and wouldn't really enhance the ticket. Then a wild hair came up, maybe Evan Bayh of Indiana. He is still popular there and would give the dems a good chance at Indiana. Or perhaps if Charlie Crist wins in Florida? Any ideas?

    Since this division seems to be world-wide with free Nations and growing, I don't think we should look any further than the internet and all of the over-the-top web-sites..
    It was refreshing yesterday to see them all come together as one to declare their memories, admiration, respect and heartfelt support for Nelson Mandela.
    I am happy that Mr. Mandela was able to hang on until this Christmas season..We have so much to be thankful for with our freedom..
    Madiba spent years believing and teaching a divided nation that they can come together. He was a unifier in life and he clearly still is in death.
    Most people seem struck by how Nelson Mandela came out of prison and preached non-violence and prevented a Civil war .

    Apparently, there are some grievances from the right wing that need to receive a fair discussion..
    As you said, not right now..
    President Lincoln has had worse things said about him than Nelson Mandela on this forum..

    Hickenlooper and Udall still have short leads in Colorado but both are slipping in popularity..
    Frankly, I can't imagine any Democrat worth his/her salt wanting to play third fiddle to both Clintons..
    As for President, I have a hunch on Gov. O'Malley from Maryland..
    I'm at a loss for VP, which is why I think it is a done deal for CC..
    We'll see, I would like to have the opportunity to vote for either Evan Bayh or even Warner of VA.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Yeah, we're lucky the four of them didn't kill each other on the Capital steps. Then again, maybe not.

    You've got a lot of conservative Democrat in your blood brother Tista..
    Isn't it great to have these choices in a free nation??
    That will be Mandela's legacy in South Africa--a free nation--one man one vote--
    and yet that is argued against here on DP for the USA .

    My old man was one of those yellow dog Democrats. But when I was a kid and liked IKE, he let me be to make up my own mind. I'd say in local races I usually vote Democrat, statewide, it depends and nationally, third party in 5 of the last 6 elections. You would probably be shocked who I voted for before that beginning with Goldwater. Then again maybe not.

    Anyway, night to one and all. May Mandela RIP, I will light 3 incense sticks and say a prayer for him before I hit the hay. A good and wise man has left this earth and we are all the poorer for it.

    by the way, Jimmy C was a very good governor.

    If you think that party has no power, there are a lot of people in labor camps in China who would argue that point with you.

    And there are more people in the Republic of Cuba and the Democratic Peoples Republic of North Korea who would also argue that point.

    You are out of touch with reality, the Communist regimes in the three states that I mentioned have enormous power over the daily lives of the people who live there.

    And China's Peoples Liberation Army, with 2.3 million active troops, is the largest military force on this planet would be a formidable adversary for the USA.

    Failing to acknowledge China's power, and/or ignoring it doesn't make it go away.
