Palin vs. Rice

It's obvious now that mccain's decision to run with Palin has hurt him greatly. I have read articles and i have talked to actual people who wanted to vote for mccain until he chose her.

what i'd like to know is why didnt he want to run with Rice? she obviously has much more experience, very strong personality, she's female, she's minority, she's leading US diplomacy right now, and for the bushies, she is still one!

why did mccain pick palin over all that?

anyway, they're history... or at least i like to believe so

Palin was picked to try to solidify the Republican base. Many of that same base wouldn't take to kindly to an AA being picked to run as VP. So it wouldnt help McCain with the type of people he needed to gain support of.

I think I would know a female if I saw one...

I was just adding to the list of potential female VP picks...

My pick would have been Ken Blackwell...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Blackwell

But I can believe that some conservatives would have a problem with Sen McCain

McCain could have picked any one of the top runners he was was courting and ended up better than Palin. Picking Palin shows awful judgement IMO. Something we have to think about is the reluctance of others to run with McCain. For various reasons (Bush, Replicans being in office 8 years, Obama's popularity, etc) many thought McCain would have no chance. Nobody wants was to run with the loosing candidate, so there were probably many who were not interested.

Condi & Kay Bailey Hutchison are not considered "real" conservatives. McCain is already known as a pragmatist, so he needed someone who was convincingly stupid and fascist enough to shore up support amongst the lunatic wing of his party.
