    so now Obama picked Biden, Who does Mccain get to counter?

    Do you guys think this decision impacts Mccains options?

    or does he just go with what he was going to do anyway...

    Doesn't really matter about Obama's pick. Just pick the person who gives him the best chance to win, and honestly, I'm not sure who that is. Perhaps Romney or Lieberman.

    Romney strengthens his weakness in economy. But weakens the Christian base.
    Huckabee strengthens the Christian and conservative vote. But is batshit crazy

    Which is why I think he might go with someone like Lieberman, Pawlenty, Jindal, or Crist, who really doesn't affect the vote like Romney or Huckabee. Those people pretty much dismiss the chance of McCain's support decreasing.

    I don't see him going out and tabbing Fred Thompson. The guy was supposed to be the savior of the GOP brand. But, I don't think he woke up. Then again, it was during the writers strike. Maybe he just didn't have a script (I still haven't gotten tired of that joke).

    Really, I believe it's going to be Tim Pawlenty (Gov MN). The guy brings a youthful exuberance ... if only he could get his wife to have sex with him.

    "I have a wife who genuinely loves to fish. I mean, she will take the lead and ask me to go out fishing, and joyfully comes here. She loves football, she'll go to hockey games ... Now, if I could only get her to have sex with me."

    I'd assume that he's so far along in the selection process that he chooses the person who is the right fit for his campaign, and not the person who would look best compared to Obama's selection.

    Huckabee thinks the earth is 6,000 years old. The guy is very obviously an idiot.

    Yeah anyone who believes in a being higher than Barack Obama's just ********.

    McCain should just pick the candidate he was going to go with anyway.

    I love Jindal, he'd be the perfect candidate,plus it gets the public familiar with him for a future presidential run. But hasn't he said publicly he won't be the VP?

    Biden said it wouldn't be him too. All VP candidates deny they're the one until the official announcement. But I hope it's not Jindal. Because he has a really bright future in politics.

    Jindal is a weirdo.

    About the subject. If Obama had picked Hillary, Mccain would have to "counter" that move with something big. But really....at this point, it doesn't matter who he picks.

    I got money on Lieberman as the pick. But I'm already down $10 because I was sure that Hillary would be Obama's pick. And 4 years ago, I really thought Kerry was going to pick Gephardt. I suck at guessing VP choices.
