ELECTION: thoughts of a JFK/McCain ticket?

Can a Democrat/Republican joint ticket beat Bush/Cheney?

This is a very important election year. John F. Kerry needs to select a
suitable Vice Presidential candidate if he expects to have a chance of
beating George W. Bush in the 2004 election. His former Democratic
Primary rivals (John Edwards, Dick Gephardt, Howard Dean, etc.) are his
likely choices, but there has been an ever growing speculation that he
might choose someone more controversial......like Hillary Rodham Clinton,
or even Bush's Republican rival from Arizona, John McCain.

McCain denies that he would accept such a nomination, but so has Hillary
and Edwards, yet the VP candidate is likely to be one of these three
people.

Who do you think would be the greatest asset to J F Kerry as running
mate?

With the latest abuse photos and videos popping up (US military abuse of
Iraqis, possible Nick Berg video forgery), the polls are likely to be
less predictive of the election outcome than they have traditionally been
in the past.

Kerry's choice is critical.

McCain is adamantly opposed to abortion. Do you REALLY want him on
the ticket?

From 1984 to present Kerry has maintained that he
"Never implied he threw away his own medals" during
a war protest in 1971.

"I gave back, I can't remember, 6, 7, 8, 9 medals,"
Kerry said in an interview on a Washington, D.C.
news program on WRC-TV's called Viewpoints on
November 6, 1971.

One of many reasons it won't happen is McCain would have to give up his Senate
seat and the Democrat Gov of Arizona would then get to appoint his successor, a
Dem taking over a Republican seat. Ain't gonna happen ...

It's not going to be Clinton or McCain. I guess that leaves Edwards.
But Bill Richardson would do the Democratic ticket wonders. There would
be a feeling of geographic balance, Democrats wouldn't have to campaign
in CA, Republicans would have to campaign in CO, Democrats would win NM
without much effort and AZ would be in play. The Democrats would
enhance their image as the party of diversity with a national candidate
50% Hispanic.

What I really worry about is a Bush/Giuliani ticket. Giuliani would
have toflipflop on social issues, but it's been done before. Most
notably by George HW Bush, who later became president. As supporter of
the Democratic ticket I really hope the national Republicans keep
Haliburton.

Kofi Aman,

A perfect running mate for the global socialist that Kerry is.

"How can there possibly be liberty and justice for all, when, in the
name of justice, people claim rights to income, food, housing,
education, health care, transportation, ad infinitum? We can't. Positive
rights to receive such things, absent an obligation to earn them, must
violate others' liberty, by taking some of their income without their
consent. They are really just wishes, convertible into benefits for some
only by employing the government to violate others' rights not to have
what is theirs taken." --Pepperdine Professor Gary Galles

The GOP base would never support that. A third party conservative would
emerge.
